move fast and dont hold the can too fast cuz you dont want drips

get cheap paint, and let like a lot of the pressure out before you start painting. that way, itll be low pressure. but dont do it with good paint, because you probly wont use all the paint in the can if you let alot of the pressure out.

ive never tried it but i was told if you hold the can upside down and let some of the aeresol out it&#39;ll lower the pressure.. lower pressure=less drips

montana alien is low pressure. pretty much everything else is high pressure.

i think belton is high pressure, i really couldnt say though

ive actually been wondering about can control too. does the amount of pressure pushed down on the cap help control the paint flow?

epik!
03-16-2006, 09:21 PM
essentially for some cans^^^ but nobodies going to sit there and hold it with the same pressure on the cap for a long time...

i watch alot of people get crisp lines and you talk about doing it fast to avoid drips...but i still seem to get driping. You guys hold ur cans up to the wall or back away from it.

BOSS
03-18-2006, 03:49 PM
u cant hold the can right up to wat your painting or else youll get a ton of drips and if you hold it to far back then youll waste a lot of paint

What is the actaul difference between high pressure cans and low pressure cans? you sed low= less drips...so what does high pressure do?

mizta
03-25-2006, 11:58 AM
well think about for a second high pressure = more paint to flow out which could possilby mean more drips if you hold the can in one spot thats why you gotta move fast with it. Low pressure less paint will come out so you can move a little slower plus get in some deatails

mizta
03-25-2006, 11:59 AM
but i gotta question about lowering the pressure in the can


just holding it upside down and pressing the cap with lower the pressure wont some paint come out also i remember trying it and it was messy so i was like fuck this shit

Kause
03-25-2006, 12:04 PM
actaully mizta...ive done that...say youre using black color....hold it upside down and spray...and for brief seconds, usually only one second...black will come out....then youll see clear (air) come out in a split second...then hold it donw as long as you want, for as much less pressure you want...=)

Uhh....companies never fill stuff all the way up...So when you hold it upside down and press the cap only the paint thats in the cap will come out and some pressure

wow..this is the first topic ive ever made where i dont get "CLOSE. or SEARCH SEARCH" so tahnks...its actaully helping, kuz now that ive practiced, my hand/arm moves quicker....and my throwies are coming out great....any tips for fills? kuz the outlines are easier, kuz its one line, but fills sometimes cause you to back to a spot that you missed to fill it in, which causes you to go over paint and creates a buildup of paint in one spot and it drips...so any tips there? this is much appreciated...

personally i like when it drips like if im using red and black ill use the black and while its wet ill outline or fill in with red... so when it drips its red blood with black outline... i find drips my specialty because ive gradually learned how to perfect them but if u wanna just move really fast make sure u know where ur tips facing and just try not to mess up it will take some time but ull get used to it... practice on a legal wall or on a piece of plywood just write a work and try outlining it perfect and keep doing that till u get used to it

good luck bro

you could just rearrange the letters? kause=auske?auesk?sukea,seauk,ekseu,ekues,eskua,es kau,esauk...etc. etc.,,just play with the letters man,,if you like it and don&#39;t want to change them.,,..,., and uknown,,move your hand quicker or use different stock tips,,.,using stock tiips doesn&#39;t mean you have to use the one that came on the can,,when i use them i figure out what sprays wide,thin,etc. and then use thing for lines wide for fill and so on,,just switch caps around or get other caps from walmart or someplace

use a fat cap and vary the distance of the can from the wall
also, it helps if you tag a wall as high up as you can, so reaching the top of your letters makes them flare.

yup straight up, you&#39;ll save a LOT of money and youll get reall good, even though the piece/throw-up/tag looks crappy its not, its just the paint then when you use cheap paint for a half a year or so go on to rustoleum or krylon.. your shit will look like butter.. well tahts what happen to me

flat colors work pretty ok on unprimed wood. you can just use a can of primer on it thought, do a crack fill with a can of walmart primer for 94 cents and you can probly do almost a whole 4x8 sheet of plywood

cardboard is ok, but you have to basecoat it alot or it soaks it up and makes it look watery.

i use cardboard in my room, and wood outside.

So, lets say I have a couple cans of Krylon.

If I used the method where you turn the can upside down and let out the aersol to reduce the pressure, how long/how much do you let out? How do you know when to stop letting out the aersol, etc.

Thanks.

Belton is low pressuere along with montana alien(spanish) and now the german montanas have controllabel pressure valves so if you press hard on the cap youll get high pressure adn soft youll getl ow pressure(i think thast how it works) it seems too onfusing for me liek it coudlmalfunction easily and just wastes money when they&#39;re makign the cnas costing us more money to buy them

i just go with rusto and kilz(both high presure) but they dont drip cause the paint is so thick it doesnt move, but then again they make messy lines becasue of the exreme presure output and therefore are only ogod for throws bombing and handstyles not for peicing(unless youl iek sloppy peices)

ive never tried it but i was told if you hold the can upside down and let some of the aeresol out it&#39;ll lower the pressure.. lower pressure=less drips




Nice tip&#33;

Also, try straight lines on your dubs/pieces etc.

Looks better than curled lines anyway lol

i saw this new decopaint at wal mart kinda weird shaped and has a pretty good color range.

i just did my first shit last night. Anyway, i think painting on metal/brick is easier than painting on raw wood. The wood drank up the paint and i had to go over it again and again. When i went over it, it was still moist from the previous time and it dripped all over the place.. anyway, i gotta learn patience.

if you have the right paint you shouldnt have to let out any pressure, practice, practice, practice. it will become second nature eventually, try use nozzels that you are comfortable with, alot of it also has to do with the pressure control with your finger.

if youve got male cans
take the nib off and fold paper over the top a few times and test it till its right
this gives you half pressure without fucking up your finger and getting uneven lines when you accidently press that little bit harder
lined paper doesnt work as well for some reason i dont know

~TEK~

SeapNSR
05-02-2006, 02:27 PM
because there is paper under the nib therefore you can only push it down half way
therefore half the normal amount of paint comes out
foam or felt or some shit might work better i will experiment

Lower preassure by, just rolling up a a bit of paper(magazine paper works best) inside the dick, or the nose, or even up ur nozzle then put the nozzle back on the dick and its a perfect outliner. shake ur can, and spray abit before using to it it useful.

Also preassure and can control relies on the quality of the brand.

either flick your wrist out or pull the can away from the wall
pretty self explanatory
the further the can is away from the wall the mistier its going to be
like everything graff related it takes a lot of practice to get even flairs while keeping it stylish
just practice doing them with normal printing or handwriting then move on to making them stylish
PRACTICE ON BOARDS FIRST&#33;

if ur worried wit 90degree corners just go down 1 side and then go from the other side and join the 2 together if that makes sense

06-05-2006, 11:58 AM
Some can techniques that id like to mention here are: when filling big areas i recommend to use ur thumb or why not also when doing lines. But for me thumb works in big areas and front finger on lines and details. Another thingie that is not actually can control but if and when ur paint starts dripping be fast and go "under" it and start strongly blowing it upwards so the flowing air will stop it from dripping. Works evrytime on me when painting in winter (colder air = more dripping). Practice makes perfect as they say. But theres couple advices which i share u and all who reads this.

get some good cans to get used to and practice and some tips to try out. Since the winters coming- you might freeze your ass off but practice in the snow like in a fresh spot. That way if you mess up, you just shovel it up or mix it around. Its not good for the cans but if its practice it shouldnt matter.

start out w/ some krylon or similar and just go out and practice practice practice. if you have control w/ watery krylon when u move up to the thicker stuff it&#39;ll be very easy. In hawaii mtn and molotow are near impossible to get w/ out paying ridiculous shipping costs so the only choice to use is rusto or krylon. a good writer will be able to control his/her paint even if its the shitty colorplace cans, it just come down to the time you&#39;ve put into practicing. also choice of caps will help reduce drips ie. silver fat might give you problems on a watery paint like krylon but and orange dot wont.

Can anyone shed some light on the topic of can pressure? Like what to use high/low pressure cans for?
I was doin some flares with a pinkdot and some Krylon and the can had way too much pressure, so I let some out and had better results. Anyone have anything to add on this subject?

montana: low pressure-good for peicing.
krylon, rusto: high pressure- good for bombin

FUCK CAN CONTROLS


you must be reeeeeal sloppy...and that was the most randomly retarded thing in this thread

i saw this new decopaint at wal mart kinda weird shaped and has a pretty good color range. I tried one to see how they are....kinda transluscent, and REALLY REALLY thin line capability....and fairly low pressure, i cannot remember the name but theyd be good for canvas...they are short and wide with a pale yellow label. [/b][/quote]
Kilz...maybe? I love their colors and their caps are like german thins.
and for the record....

For Everyone.

High Pressure - when you press down no matter how hard as long as the aero is flowing paint will come...

Low pressure - if you press down light you dont get fucked up drips down your hand you get a lighter shading effect

For pieces, low. For a quick fill on a throwie I would say, high.

02-18-2007, 04:31 PM
i heard montana gold has high and low pressure combined or something.
when i press down light with gold, it&#39;s like low pressure, and when i press it down hard, it&#39;s like high pressure =)
(montana is one of the cheapest paint here, so it&#39;s not a waste of paint/money for me)

oh man
belton=400mL low pressure...great for EVERYTHING
MTN(montana spanish)= hardcore400ml-high pressure, still great for everything
MTNalien-low pressure for details, but only 250mL
german montana=high pressure for everything but gold, and german isnt as good as MTN
krylon=way to high pressure, let some out by tipping it upside down and spraying and itll be aright....
rusto is same as krylon, but the pressure is better and most say it covers better

happy? lol

Krylon DEF has less pressure than rusto.

I was trying out new caps, put a NY fat on the rusto and sprayed it, came out fast.

Put the same cap on kyrlon, it just flared the paint out all by itself, much easier to control. Only problem is the paint doesnt cover very well..

And dont de-gas it. It would have loss most of its gas by then so it should already be low pressure. If you wanted it high pressure, go buy a new can and stop being cheap....

Um no.

I can&#39;t see any way the gas would leave the can unless the valve has been pressed down.

Please someone correct me if I&#39;m wrong.

just a general FYI, on low pressure cans that you want (for whatever reason) to be higher, submerge the can in hot water. this is the same technique used for mixing colors.

if you hold your cans upside down and spray it depressurizes the can and makes it spray slower no matter what brand

a good way to start developing your can control is, try to get yourself to keep the can parallel with the wall so all your lines are the same thickness and such, and after you start gettin good with that, u can start tiltin the can a bit to give you flairs/sharp edges etc. when u get even better with that then u can start lookin into dustin n shit for your pieces/burners etc

are you an idiot montana and belton are THE most over priced paints on the market, unless you do crazy wildstyle peices in extreme detail which you probly dont, in my opinion isnt even worth the money in most cases, excet those huge mtn bombing cans where you get like twice the paint for half the price.


the cheapest paint have you ever heard of wallmart??? rustoleum, krylon, painters touch,american accents. rusto is cheaper and usualy better than hardcore anyway.

I like colour vision for blending. It&#39;s not a bad paint either, even if it IS cheap. The colour choice is a little iffy though.
Krylon isn&#39;t bad either... like it&#39;s decent.
And isn&#39;t ironlak really expensive too? Wish I could get my paws on that paint. I wanna try it out.
Only shit I use is krylon, colour vision and montana when I can afford it.

Just as good also.

since im broke off my ass, i use color vision, or rusto. they work nicely with NY`s.

a good thing to practise for can control is draw a bubble letter plus sign, and at every intersection try to make a nice clean 90 degree corner, try to make it all the same thickness too. it also teaches you to start right where the pervious line ends.


another one is make a circle, then try to fill outline it perfectly, and make it a perfect circle. (you can go to the newspaper place and get a free huuge roll of paper and tape it onto plywood, when it gets fill, take a new one overtop

here in denmark (in my city we dont have montana/belton so i have to travel to other cities to get paint -.-) the price for montana and belton is usually cheaper than what else to get (cept for some cheap white/black but usually its just wtf expensive to buy other paint in dk)

Give your self a used to fuck name like kaze and write your scribbly shit with stock caps...

To get good at can control do this exercise: Paint a square, then a circle inside that, a square inside and see how small you get it.
The technique is: Close to wall, very light push on cap, move the lines fast.
Another tip: When you&#39;re outlining a piece do each line on the outline in one stroke.
A lot of toys try do it all in one go and thats how shit looks sloppy&#33;


Another thing is montana has a dual cap system on their gold and black line.
Its high and low pressure at the same time&#33;
Sometimes its good to to let some pressure out your cans...
upside spray and if trying some effects with a male can you can put toilet papper inbetween the cap and the can and you&#39;ll get a softer line&#33;

your muscle aint used to it.. rest it for a couple days then go at it again.

keep doing that for a good while. it shouldnt take long before you could do a piece with no finger pain... OR what you can do is when your filling use your thumb and for the detail use your index finger
