hipster is just a label man, as for the style its more euro'ish. kinda like its ok not to be clean with lines. lots of tags and shit, then posting that shit on there little hipster blog. personally i feel hipster graffiti is the fuckin ani-poon. stay away from that style if you want any validity and respect in this game besides your other hipster friends and strange blog heads.

hipsters try to be anti-all, but have an apreatation for graffiti so they try to associate themselves accordingly. i try to go over any hipster shit i see.

when someone says hipster graffiti its generally in the same catagory as bad graffiti.

if you cant afford a new chisel tip "sharpie" then its time to rack one man. i think wal-mart has a theft break at 10 dollars with no charges pressed, they just call you a dumb ass and tell you to go away.

save your hard earned allowance up to about 20 bucks and get a box of them hoes. folks say there is no such thing as a dumb question, but i disagree.

might as well tape a piece of paper to the front of your shirt that says "im going to rack a bunch of shit from your store here, please watch me." and its also written in yellow highlighter. good luck sir.

Fury
03-10-2011, 08:29 PM
Well if it's in yellow highlighter on a piece of paper, how the fuck are you going to read that?
/literal

And from my experience, you can bring a backpack into Home Depot and Lowes, but not OSH.

Weedeater, why specifically flat and not gloss? I already only buy flats, but I'm just wondering your view.

gloss white sucks wieners and is like straight water

weedeater
03-10-2011, 09:49 PM
in my experience its alot runnier than flat, i even use the "turn can upside down and release some pressure" trick, but can get away with not doing it with flat without having to worry about drips and runs. it also seems like it takes longer to dry, i can do a fill with dollar can gloss and when i go back to do the outline the shit will run and mix with my fill, but with flat ive never had a problem, not saying you can run your hand over it without it being wet, but it just sticks to the surface better and seems to cure faster. theres also a big difference with opacity.

basically, dollar can gloss white looks like krispy kreme glaze and dollar can flat white looks dusty, which i prefer, dusty fills are dope.

hmm, how to say this, ... its like walking into a gas station at around 1 am, wearing a ski mask and buying a smokes. but if you have a team wearing a back pack is a good decoy method.

as for the paint shit, gloss is just added to flat paint, when you get gloss if its not shaken right or its just cheap most times you get more clear gloss out and then others you get more paint out. its inconsistant. there for looks watery/splochy. flat is just piant, so it sprays a more consistant way hence works better.

Phat 2
03-11-2011, 08:26 AM
fube got the right explanation ^
but of course, flat is less drippy and more opaque

yo , last week i thought it was time for me to go bombing after sketching for a while. but WTF it was so ugly. can control is really harder than i thought x) so my question iss..

does taggin improve your cancontrol? cuz i dont want to fuckup my rep/name so I thought i just go hardcore taggin until my control is aight.

it should work right?

Fube
03-11-2011, 12:46 PM
im starting to love lookin at this thread.

@ntn yeah, the first time on the street with anything is your WORST time always. that goes with anyone. you need to find a chill spot hommie. a practice wall. almost positive you will change your name at least 2 more times due to when you get better because your embarrised of the previous name. that is only if you find a chill spot/plywood board, or something to practice on to get the basics down. so you have some way to gauge what its going to look like when your done on the street. dont go out and plaster what your gunna do now because you will regret it later. trust me.

1.practice paper
2.practice wall
3.practice street
4.gettin up full time.

btw this is just advice, i am by no means the great graffiti rule giver. im a mod on a graffiti forum. take it or leave it.

03-11-2011, 01:54 PM

shyoo hit some fill ins before you try to piece *****... at least a few, goin from doin tags to piecing is a gigantic jump

NosE2
03-14-2011, 04:46 PM
yeah, you may feel like you've improved a lot, even though it's only been 1 more time, but you probably haven't. I mean maybe a little. It's going to take you roughly 30 times going out (just my estimate) before you start getting can control. Catch hands, and start doing throws. Learn what colors you like, and start doing straight letters. Then go for the pieces. I like piecing, it's more of a social outlet for me, I like the flick at the end. But catching hands and doing throws/straights and going solo is where it's at for me for graffiti. Everone has their preferences. You'll figure out what works for you.

ntn
03-14-2011, 06:58 PM
aight thx alot.
yeah i know i still suck and there's no writer that had cancontrol after 1-2times bombing.
but i meant throwies i guess xd just the fillin , easy letters and shadows. ofc i will practise aloooot and im hoping im respected in like 2 years, so i got some time and im motivated as hell hehe

oh yeah.. check tot throw for my throw please;d

on a side note, i tried searching and couldnt find a post on it, but if you go to the automotive section of a store, you can take the cap off of a carb and choke cleaner can, and viola, instant extinguisher cap. also look for appliance epoxy cans and "plasti dip" spray cans, they usually come with calligraphy caps. and im sure by now every knows where to find elmer fats.

What's an extinguisher cap? Found those calligraphy caps while exploring Lowes one day when I didn't feel like going to school. Also, They sell this stuff at walmart, It's called like Tacky Glue or something, Stocked right next to the Elmers stuff, in a brown can. Rusto Fats.

Still looking for something I can rack thin caps off of. Anyone know of anything?

weedeater
03-20-2011, 01:53 PM
extinguisher caps allow you to catch a tag above what your hand can reach. alot of times at my spots during the day, i cant venture too far out from under the bridges, because you can be seen from the road. well if i dont have a clean panel, and i dont feel like taking a risk and walking to a car where i can be seen, ill just pop on an extinguisher cap and catch 2 hands above whats already painted. think about the destruction/height you can get with a fire extinguisher, and then relate it to a spray can. just look at flicks of walls, youll occasionally see hands above pieces/throws that are kind of weak as far as cleanliness and style goes, yet theyre huge and above everything else. thats an extinguisher cap.

and im not a fan of calligraphy caps, but my boy musto is fucking sick with them.

alright, here you go, heres one of each of what i currently use. just pulled them out of my bag so im sorry if some are too dirty to show alot of detail, i didnt feel like hunting down a clean one of each different kind of cap. put stock caps in pic for comparison.

1 - female rusto stock
2 - female fat cap (check auto section, i guess there like stormtrooper caps but riveted)
3 - female extinguisher (auto section, sometimes can be found on cooking spray)
4 - male elmer fat (elmer spray glue cans)
5 - calligraphy cap (appliance epoxy, plasti dip cans)
6 - extinguisher cap (auto section, carb and choke cleaner can)
7 - rusto fat (older elmer spray glue/other brands)
8 - rusto stock

i found my chill spot in a large canal
it's the same as the LA river but much smaller and with straight walls instead of slopes
sneaked down there everytime and practiced, and the water level's always low during summer time, so whenever I went down there, the water would only be flowing in a narrow stream in the middle of the canal, and the sides and the walls would be dry
it was really quiet and there was absolutely noone and nothing down there, not even hobos or animals... just me, my paint, and that HUGE HUGE HUGE endless wall. all to myself :)

If you find some streets on Google Maps that don't have houses, they'll probably have walls keeping them in. This is true for me, I actually have two areas near each other where they're supposed to build houses but don't get around to it, so it's just a whole lotta wall. Sewer ditches are also good, or maybe skateparks if you got any.

And you might be able to find some urban exploring places through searching Google for your town. I found some places that way too (even though they list dangers as: coyotes, other wild animals, and KKK members).

If it's acrylic, you can thin it with water. I dunno if that's what you were looking for, but there you go.

Heklr, I live in California haha. On the other side of town more near the tracks is where bums are 24/7. Constant fights. I can just imagine going over there at night. There are some factories over there though, but I don't think my town has many dope fiends or gangs (unless you travel into those areas).

I've honestly not had many stories, but I have been in abandoned places and had like 20 people (all 30+ in age) come inside. I never will understand that kinda shit.

Talking about weird shit happening, there is a train yard about 10 maybe 15 minutes away from my house and i wondered to where they actually keep them at bay so off i climb over this small fence through some trees right next to a fuck off huge spiked fence and basically walked around the side of the yard and im looking into the yard and seeing loads of vans and security building things like portable classrooms then i end up in a field with about 30-40 sheep staring at me hahah then they started to follow me around so i slowly move back the way i came thinking i was going to be spotted with all these bloody sheep behind me... so random

ian
03-30-2011, 06:38 PM
i honestly don't see why they have so much security at train yards and shit, just lock up the cars and let it go, they're ugly ass train cars anyway, who cares if they get graffed up. If train yards were easier i think it would take more graff off the streets too. Just my 2 cents, i feel like people wouldnt care as much about graffiti on trains as they do graffiti on walls

pointman
03-30-2011, 07:54 PM
Plank you in the UK? security is usually there to stop thieves stealing the copper wire and shit they can sell basically. I did see at least 3-4 cars in bay to be washed though on the way back. Didn't fancy getting fucked for trespassing when i wasn't even going to paint or anything. Oh and those 3 spike fences look savage cant imagine the pain you would be in if you slipped on those fuckers

I go to into Michael's a lot when I need caps and just head to the spray adhesive section. I take the elmer's cap obviously, but there are some other cans with NY Skinny's on them. I don't know the brands or anything.

There's also some all black caps that are kinda skinnier than stocks.

well i found a picture of someone with one of those fences up his ass.

Looks like the easiest way to get around it would be to loosen the bolts at the top/bottom.

a fence like this?

is flat black better than gloss? also for a 5 letter straight (NOISE) just a fill outline and basic 3d or drop shadow and maybe a forcefield, how many cans of paint would that use up?

ribcage

gloss is shinier, hence the name... i digg the shiny:o. And amount of paint depends on how big your boutta do it. if its gone be as tall as you, or in the 5-6 foot range, get 2 can for fill 1 for outline and 3d 1 for 2nd outline. but you gonna want a good amount of fill color in case you fuck up the outline ya digg? It also depends on brand because they got different coverage.I mostly fucks with the rusto. When I do a straight letter i usually fuck w/ 2 different fill colors and use a can of both colors. so if ur doin 1 color you gone need 2 cans...

Kinda a difficult and vague question to answer because all the different variables. After you start paintin you'll just know how much you need

If you're just painting for the first time, just bring a dollar can of white and a dollar can of black. Don't really worry about going hella big yet, just make sure the letters are proportional and shit.

But to answer your question, I've done a 4 letter straight 5-6 feet tall and I almost used 10oz (probably about 2oz left in the can) for the fill and force field. For the 3D, I probably used about 2oz of paint. For you, if you go that big, you'll probably use a full can of paint for the fill, unless you make it hella dusty.

well rollers are probably one of the easiest ways to get up. Theres nothing really tip wise that isn't common sense... wear clothes you dont mind paint splattering on and if ur gonna be close to the wall/painting high spots, where a hat/beany/shirt or somethin on your head so u dont get paint on your face or in your hizzair... other than that rollers are pretty straight forward

Cap Help

Well im getting confused by the caps which i need to get my head around before i go out trying throwups. Ive looked on the net,and what i found is "grey dot is the skinniest,pink dot is the fattest". Does that apply to all brands? Also does the shape or colour of the cap itself determine anything or just the colour of the doughnut where the paint comes out of?

Phat 2
04-03-2011, 10:45 AM
i reckon the maclaim cap is the skinniest cap around and the level 5 gold cap is the fattest... but when it comes to throws, you wont be needing any skinny caps. those are more for piecing, especially when you're intrested in fine detailed work.
and no the shape or color of caps dont determine anything. I could lay out all kinds of caps in front of you and you wouldn't be able to know which is which, except for the calligraphy cap coz its nozzle looks like a line, but you're gona have to try your caps out to find out which is which if this is your first few times, then you'll just get used to em and automatically know that pink and orange dots are fat caps for example.
trial and error is always the best way to go.

it would help also if you can get your hands on Eaz1's dvd "the future of graffiti". there's a section only about the different caps and how to use them and stuff, that movie's very informative and helpful. highly recommended.

hope this helped

Was doing random throws With my friend before collage. He gave me a burner chrome the fat ass can and I did my outline then when I started to fill I ended up wearing half the can it misted all over my hands and had specs on my face Hahah oh and my black looked like water and was patchy I shaked it like fuck, maybe it couldn't cover the chrome.

You know like my first outline in the fill colour, so it looked like a hollow then the dusty fill with the fat. Need to get those sharp edges with the fat i found it hard and didn't want to go too close for it to drip everywhere.

Need to get those sharp edges with the fat i found it hard and didn't want to go too close for it to drip everywhere.

Its all about angles, when you get real close with the can you got to make sure the the cap's hole isnt facing the wall parallel, if you make it so it sprays at an angle you get hit the corners without going beyond the area your wanting to fill, ya digg?

And yeah unless you got that coversall burner black you definetly aint gonna cover the chrome unless you wait until it is completely dry

nah!: the best way is to just get out there and look around and you'll eventually find it, but most of the time some1 has already found the place and its been burnt out already. the best places and most common are things like Washes, under bridges, Abandoned Buildings, Train Tracks, stuff off the beaten path... and so on... but even though they are chill dont let people see you go into them and dont tell people about them cuz then they'll get burnt out so just tell your closest homies and shit.

Finding good chill spots just takes a bit of time and exploring. Watch for things like radio towers when you're driving, abandoned buildings and factories, and under bridges of major highways or almost any bridge over train tracks. Use google earth satellite too. near my city there's a park with a huge resevoir. At one end is a beach area for people to swim, and the rest is surrounded by forest. On the opposite end is a drain with a huge culvert like a mini LA river. It's the best spot to smoke and paint. Good luck.

I can't say this for graffiti because i'm still toy as shit. However, I do a lot of other illustration and sketching and I find that any time you hit a creative wall/slump, it's best to change your style/inspiration. Try adapting a new style for yourself, start over from scratch if you have to (this can be fun sometimes anyways, can't it? the feeling of starting something fresh)

If you find searching a new style isn't working, maybe you need to change your alias? Could be you're just sturggling coming up with more ideas for it because you've used your creative capacity up on that one.

If neither of these work I don't know what to tell you, maybe you're just losing interest?

If its a style slump where you cant think of anything new, go to some local all city spots(if you got any) and look around. Watch graffiti movies, art movies, fucked up and psychedelic movies. Stop thinking about the slump and start getting over it. Do some Drugs.

Get yourself some shrooms grab a good lookin ho, and go down to the dopest spot you know and relax, let your mind be blown and if you got bars you get your dick blown too. realize different life, then hit the sketchbook and draw some shit up, if you aint likin the shit you draw take your anger out on it and then move on

my main idea after not finding any contact info of his online (i did find flicks of the same tags but in germany tho) is the same thing that worked last time: write next to their stuff "props, mail me: phat2@reborn.com"

well you could spot jock him, he goes back to see one of his tags and then sees one of your too, then scout the main graffiti areas where youd think he might go... you could say props to him, but leaving an email adress might sketch him out... a little weird. And then youd have toys seein it and theyd try to email you too...

You prolly made it an alternative email so you prolly not trippin bout who emails you... if someone told me to email them via tag id be a little skeptical

I think I'm just gonna get something fat, and paint over it, and use that color as a background for a new bomb. is this the best idea?

Phat, I wrote my flickr next to this guy's message saying he wanted to meet up, so just use a dead email. I dunno, mailinator is pretty good since you only receive shit and if you find he emailed you, get on your real email and mail him back.

have your whole respiratory system removed and replace you skin with a new one that has breathing spores is the easiest way imo

take a shot of whiskey, with a 3 drops of honey (try to get some thats made in your area), and 1/8 of a lemon squeezed into it. you'll have to use a double shooter. or you could have fun with it and use a glass and more booze... put a damp rag in the microwave and put it on your forehead, itll help open your sinuses open up. dont drink beer until you get better, i cant speak for everyone, but beer makes/keeps me mad stopped up. other than that, just rest, i know thats a generic answer but shit really helps, especially with fatigue depending on how bad your cold is. also, lots of orange juice, its dope anyway.

But my sinuses are like stop and go. one second theyll be clogged and then the next theyll be free flowing, it fucking sucks... No beer tho huh? Im prolly gonna end up taking my chances w/ that 1...

yall are just realizing that you made previous dumb name decisions. Yes, if you dont like letters in your name you should change it..... its fucking common sense

rib - honey is good for you to begin with, and if you get organic honey made in your area, then it is from the plants pollen that are fucking with your sinuses. me and my girl usually get a monster jar of local honey every pollen season. and we never get sick. she puts it in her coffee. i know it sounds too hippyish to work, but it does.

new rusto really aint that bad paint wise, I just get a few cans of rusto for fills and then grab a couple cans of osh brand for outlines. The paints coverage is better than it used to be, time to invest in cap adapters tho, especially if your into chromes

everytime you do something on the forums, you gain credit for it
posting, voting, starting new threads, referring, uploading a photo, friending someone... everything gives you credit.
basically it's about being active, the more active you are, the more credits you get.
what use are they, I still don't know. but they must mean something, probably a discount on a purchase or something, but it's a wild guess.
