Anyone tried these things? They seem pretty dope, cause you could basically make any colour you want...

You just chill one can and warm the other one I think, then the paint from one transfers to the other.... Something like that.

it sint as easy as you think
paint spray everywhere
its fucking insane
takes alot of practice
you can easily make your own from taking inserts out of ny's and then use the inner part of a bic pen as the tube

very easy to make out
the mixing is the fun part....

i have been meaning to try it forever

EDIT

after reading tht info on monster colors it really helps you out and is very informative on explaining all the steps, it has actually made me take the effort to try it ill post a pic of my mixing cap in a bit

i loved mixing colours get a little red and chrome and a lotta white nad u got sparkly pink.but its fun getting silver/chrome and black and white and red,blue, and yellow and seeing what type of shit you can come up with. I'd advise you to write down approximatley how much you mixed though because one time i had a really nice blue and i was never able to make it again.

take the white part out of a stock cap and you should be able to slightly sand down the end of a bic pen tube and jam it in tightly. no glue needed, mine has worked fine every time

You can just make your own. Thats pretty dope though.

PS: Ease, check your PM's!

He lives in scarborough, and it actually is a bit tough to find it around here. I did happen to come across a walmart that had color vision pink. I don't usually buy painters touch...color vision and krylon all the way.

i just made one last night, outta 2 ny thins and a pen tube... let one can get cold.. heated the other.. didnt work.. all i got was my hands covered in paint...

08-16-2004, 08:38 PM
why the fuck do you need a mixing cap? just use the bic pen tube thing between cans.. insert each end into the valve and push them together... it takes soo much less effort

MaNiaK
08-16-2004, 08:49 PM
not true... that whut i used to make it and it didnt work right leak and sprayed paint all over my hands...

loki
08-17-2004, 05:00 PM
you probly had a leak use some glue on the caps to seal it

and i was wondering on that site they said turn one can upside down but the mixer cap on the page and the one that guy made on this post there both holding the cans right side up so does it real matter how you hold the can

its what i used before i used the stock cap/pen tube method, just the straight pen tube works great, maybe you just dont know what your doing

your supposed to hold the cold can upside down so if the preasure starts to equalize the paint wont go back into the other can, but it shouldnt matter

I&#39;ve found that when mixing cans one good thing to do is put one can in the fridge(or freezer: but not for too long) and another in a pot of boiling water. You must be very careful tho not to heat the can too hot because of the pressure. I&#39;ve found that this method is far more efficent because the paint transfers between cans a lot quicker, and cleanly.

try mixing red and gold, it gives a nice sparkly dark red

(*eKLeK*)
10-09-2004, 04:57 PM
be careful w metallics they dont mix well with alot of other regular colors somethin in the metallic ones just causes the paint to stayt separated and doesnt completely mix. sometimes this cause interesting color variations while spraying but will almost always clogg after a few sprays. and fuck bics get a wd 40 tip or some kinda other auto lubricant spray tip(the ones without inserts) then bust open a old emty can (make shure all the pressure is out first , just hold the cap down till the can stops spraying even air) n pull off the strw that is inside the can theyre alot wider allow much better flow. u may have to clear alittle space in the cap for it but this can easily be done w/ a exacto or drill
ohh and the can HAVE TO BE DIF TEMP(one cold one warm) other wise it wont work. :ph34r:

I just mixed red molotow and white krylon and it makes this really cool bright pink. It looks flourescent almost.

it seems to me that the bic pen mixing tube between the cans without even using caps works fine.

Tony

freezeing cans wont make them explode. throwing them in a fire will.

I almost forgot to turn the burner on the stove off after I boiled the water for the paint mixing. That wouldn&#39;t have been to slick. I should probably go to bed if I&#39;m that cracked out. Peace.

silver, lime green and a LITTLE blue makes a sweet color

it seems a little far fetched and really ghetto. plus the mixing caps are bare cheap but that pen thing could work... but with shit like that ive got bad luck could any pen work apart from a bic?

this is to the kid that says he doesnt buy painters touch it is actually a nice paint...i only use it for fills and i use rusto fats...it doesnt really work well with thin tips so i use krylon for outlines...i have never used or seen color vision so thats not really an option for me

hi where I live, I can&#39;t buy mixer caps, so I wanna try do some mixer caps
but I can&#39;t take off the little white thing in a sucker cap.
I took a normal cap(sucker not a NY thin) and a try to take off the circle white
but I try and try and It&#39;s look, like it was impossible, so if someone of you guys know how I can remove that shit, please tell me. and I don&#39;t want to fuck a NY thin cap :rolleyes:

oh and I read all the tread and I don&#39;t find help for this problem :ph34r:


THANKS&#33; :)

get an exacto knife and just stab it in to the hole where the paint comes out and just wiggle it loose it worked for me
how long should the cans be frozen/heated?
frozen on top and heated on the bottom right?

percoset fun
06-17-2007, 01:38 PM
no. one can is chilled while the other is warmed. the empty / recieving can should be chilled so the pressure inside goes down a little bit.

rolling roks
06-17-2007, 03:29 PM
chilled can on top warm can on bottom
gotcha
thanks Percoset
what method works best for the mixer caps?
actually widdling away caps and putting bic pen in
or just using the bic pen to fit the pen into where the caps go
or another method?

i just mixed some paints today first time its sik al i used for a mixer cap is two needle caps i got a the bomb shelter in toronto i took the needle off of one and put em together then followed the instutions for the link in the first post simple i suppose u could take a wd40 straw and do the same with stock caps by taking out the wHite part but the need caps work perfect cause the needle fits percectly.
