How do I get continuous on my surface

I have created a design with a cobweb (spiderman) motive on the surface.
The black web cuts 1mm deep and is 0.5mm wide. The with of my nozzle is also 0.5mm.

The problem is that, instead of continuous black lines, I get some stuttering black blobs. (see picture)

What did I do wrong? When I set the nozzle to 0.4, it get a bit better, but I still end up with gaps in the black lines.

Uploading a zipped project (3MF) file with your part and settings would be most useful. Have you enabled thin wall detection?

@bobstro

The thin wall detection did the trick. Thanks! 
I would never have thought of this myself, since it is not a wall per se. But yes, for the black color, it is indeed a thin wall-like structure.
