So whats the deal with the Montana gold? Is it the same company? They sell it in my town for $9.00. They have it locked up behind the counter in a case with two big locks on it. Isn't $9.00 crazy?!?!

My shipment still hasn't showed up! HA!

My two questions of the day: Based on your experiences, how do the ny fats/ny thins work on the cheap walmart paint color place cans? My skills need so much work that I sit around drawing whenever I am not at work. I do this because I think it is more than important to develop some foundation before painting somewhere where many people will see it. I bought these cans because they are cheap and I like the colors. No point in spending my loot on some expensive Montana. Also, how do they work on Rusto?

graffiti removal is a business, that like others, gets way inflated, so that city officials, removal crews, and anyone else can stick their finger in the sugar bowl, and skim a little off the top.....
the absolute most a large piece of graff could cost to remove, is like 60 bucks, thats thirty for a whole gallon of piant and thirty dollars for the hour dude was out there,....

Are there certain surfaces that spray paints just don't adhere to well at all? Because I was painting today and I noticed when I did the fill I had to make my strokes much closer and hold the can much closer to the wall as well, just to get an acceptable coverage (which still sucked). It is the wooden backing of some apartment garages. But I think it has some kind of special coating.

early sunday morning.and you shouldnt have to hide a marker cause theyre small and fit in your pocket

(SoS)Viruz
08-03-2008, 01:47 PM
Shoa.- Man It depends. See me I go out when ever see fit. you know. But Try to go out when their isn't much happening. If their are undercover cops the Best thing for you to do it just be as sneaky as you can. If you are in to painting bring Magnets so you cant her the cans rattle.

But for stuff like Paint makers. Put it where its not visible where it is easy to accesses you know. But just in case thiers as cop who is about to catch you. Put that shit in yo ass or somethin. Real talk. (But I never be in that position.)

you just have to be careful. Like watch your surroundings listen up for anything. Make sure no one is following you. Where dark Clothing and so Shoes that you can run in. And Bring some protection like a somethin just in case some ppl or someone tries to Jump u. Make sure all you stuff that your bringing is not visible but in a easy to reach spot for you.

iight guys, i got a question.
It's regarding flares, i use a pink dot cap on many of my caps but it seems that the result of the paint which covers the surface differs in area (bigger and smaller) on the type of can i use
I want to be able to make nice big flares with my pink dot cap, does the can have to have high pressure in order for these flares to happen???
plzz helppp! :O

high pressure is best 4 flares

EhPhek
08-03-2008, 10:47 PM
than how would u know if the can is high pressure or not?

I'm using Krylon Industrial cans and i cant flare worth shit with them, im guessing because the can has low pressure.... :/

krylon ultra black is best for flairs

C3ZR ONE
08-04-2008, 12:50 AM
Can't you bust a flair with pretty much any can? I was under the impression certain caps help over others (Fats), but cans? hmm. Doesn't matter. My flairs look like cat spray anyways. I used to pride myself on handstyles. Now I'm so disgusted with mine I usually rock block letters. Ultra Flat is good shit tho. I need to go scout around and pick up all the last I can find that don't have the fucked up new tips on them. That's the only Krylon I'm really down for. The rest is terrible IMO. Long live American Accent Satins!

iVIBE
08-04-2008, 01:14 AM
Are you talking about the new Krylon tip that you can rotate? because if you are I have to agree that is a shit cap for spraying lol

C3ZR ONE
08-04-2008, 01:24 AM
Yeah. That's the one. I think all Krylon is going to that tip and it's non removeable. If you're down for Krylon, now's the time to stock up while you can still find some without the shit tips. Krylon can kiss my ass anyways.

I know these two writers that are learning how to make their own paint from Native Americans and putting them in these weird reusable cans. I didn't see exactly how they worked, but it's interesting.

hammer_time
08-04-2008, 02:06 AM
yea you can flair with ALMOST any can. Rusto isnt that great for flairs tho....
thats why i always kept UF black around, and i did stockpile quite abit of it...
but we have a cheap-o brand around here called diamond hard, and all the colors are wack, but the black is on par with mtn....thats the new flairing cans for me i guess

EhPhek
08-04-2008, 11:09 AM
alright, i guess, but not all cans can flair with my pink dot/orange dot caps, its weird, and i have 10 cans of krylon which none of my caps work with to make good flares, kinda sucks but ahh well..... ill look for new ones then

yes, i am totally aware how to flair, its quite simple actually, its just my cap (pink dot) doesnt fit all to great on my krylon and when it sprays it just sprays a little larger than normal circle than a regular stock cap

put than i tried my pink dot on a tall can, (it had more mL of paint than a normal can) and it seemed i could flare quite well with that can, iunno.... kinda weird, i guess it depends on the amount of pressure in the can?

Facedorateur

I usually bomb with both my hands (meaning i hold the cans in either my right or left hand) and i usually get some paint on my index fingers. So how is it that when i get paint on my left index finger, i dont feel anything, but when i get some on my right one IT HURTS LIKE A FUCKING BITCH and my whole right arm goes numb for 2 hours?
Why the difference between the 2 fingers and is it really dangerous for my health.

I'm thinkin that my pink dots aren't working on my krylon to the best of theirt ability because the PSI is low in the can therefore not letting the pink dot work its magic the best it can...
Can this be possible?
and are there ways to check the PSI on cans of spray paint?

hammer_time
08-05-2008, 08:43 PM
yo hammer, first off, i donno where you come from but cops around my way dont give a fuck about excuses: ALWAYS RUN. once you fuck around and start talkin to the cop you can no longer turn and run. book it while you still can, i have yet to meat a "nice" cop.
and yo, paint fumes mess up your nervous system, paint on your hands is fine though. ive gotten paint in my cuts mad times and my shit never went numb, thats some crazyness, get that checked out facerator

yea well, ask a stupid question, get a stupid answer.....

The sharpie paint pens are opaque as hell and look damn good but they wash off very easily so plan on them getting buffed quick cause their water based. I like em though.

Once- that is a pretty tight name, make sure you get a tight looking O down sense thats the first letter. And as far as stencils start laminating all that you make from now on and you will no longer have that problem. :)

well its the same as the regular size ones... just bigger.

If you know a spot is not gunna be buffed for awhile then their bad ass. i have 4 for a reason.

they keep takin down everything at this one area, and i just want to piss em off more, they've buffed some off, and then repainted it once they couldn't get the rest off. They actually went to the trouble to repaint it....

1. good name. I like.
2. no comment
3. I recommend oilboard - it's basically a treated paper used for industrial stencils (marking steel drums, etc.). Check out uline.com - another option is mylar or transparency sheets. More expensive, but if you fuck with mylar your stencils will last a very long time.

Instead of getting Sharpie water-based paint pens, get the oil-based. They have the same solid coverage that the water-based ones have, but they're a little shiny and harder to buff.

You can try mixing in some brake fluid with the paint as well, but I've never tried it with the Sharpie paint pens.

On a bingo dabber (or an **** Mini Mop) add 20% thinner and the rest oil-based paint.

If you gently squeeze it itll come out and probably wont drip.

Well, wear a large hood, go out on weeknights (cuz everybody is working or has school.) and anytime after midnight is good (depending on your city) but cops are more inclined to stop by and ask questions around 3 and 4am(but we dont care tho). For the main streets thing, bring a friend to hide you, or wear a big coat were you can hide your movements. Or just put your hood up, check for cops, write the shit in front of everyone and walk away like nothing happened, turn a corner, put down your hood.

dont even worry about cars if ur just doing marker tags. u eventually gotta realise that 99.9% of people either dont care or will not stop their car on a busy road, get out, and come hold you down, call the cops, and wait 2 hours for them to come. just do ur shit and if you feel like its startin to get sketchy just bounce. never run if u see cops. unless they saw u paint or u def know ur busted dont run. it just makes urself look really heat lol.

08-16-2008, 03:52 PM
facedorateur: spray paint will not set off alarms. in order for something to set off an alarm it must have a magnetic strip or have some type of expensive equipment on it.
if they put them on spraypaint, they wouldnt be making any money.

numberonestunna: a train yard is where workers organize trains, inspect them, fix them and all that other crapolla they do.
a lay up is where trains park over night. ussualy no engines, and no one to keep watch of them.

They both have a downside but a mop is the better choice because it can be modified. Kinda...

as he said magnums have a really potent smell but they write fairly well depending on what surface you choose. Mops on the other hand depending on what you make it out of will last longer and you can put way better inks in it than the sharpie. so go with the mop or just fuckin take both that what i would do.

I've got a few ideas bouncing around in my head for my next attempt at stenciling...any input would be appreciated...

1. A man in suit & tie holding in one hand a sign with an anti-capitalist/consumerism message scrawled on it, and in the other hand, a stuffed Wallmart bag, a statement on he hypocricy of many of us Americans, and our failure to support causes that we so willingly join.

2. A life sized payphone in red, similar to Banksy's ATM machine, that makes you look twice to see if it's real. The curly phone cord will stretch a ways, and the phone will be held in the outstretched arm of The Statue of Liberty, which would be in a dark green color, with the text "Liberty, Lost".

3. A little girl in high heels, and one leg kicked up and a pink dress, blowing innocent little bubbles in the air. Another idea, inspired by Banksy's extesnive use of innocent looking children in his stencils.

4. A table, with a crowd of young kids in yellow-polka-dotted birthday hats, with the children positioned like The Last Supper, out of the bible.

Any input would be great...

But whats the best way to get to your target?

Please give me some feedback thanks.

I guess block letters would help but just make simple shitty ones and try adding a bit of steeze to it. Afterwards just try to make it flow and practice drawing it quicker.

im pretty sure he means the outline, like when you do a throwie you do the outline in the same colour as the fill, fill it and then outline in black and no you use normal spray paint for that

09-03-2008, 10:25 AM
kire, i think u can use thicker paint too
look at the 4000 ink/paint recipy threads we have on the fourms to find something that u can add to the paint to make it thicker

I have a question about roller paint.

How much does it take to cover a wall with paint?
What will happend if I use woodpaint on concrete wall, will it just fuck my work up and make it crack faster, or is it useful?
What will happen if I use indoor paint in a place that gets a little rain? (the building that im going to paint has a roof, but no wall on one side)
I have also heard that some people buy cheap cans, crush them and then paint roll them, is it worth it? And how much paint will I get in a regular size can?

Noddles912300
09-03-2008, 04:34 PM
I would just go with indoor paint. The roof will probobly protect it from the sun and some rain.

Anyone know how to track a shipment from ****art? I ordered some paint from there, hasnt arrived yet...

electricfeel-try getting some graffiti removal but house paint should work but you may be able to see it a little afterwards

rave316-never heard of it

gentrifired-you may be able to just climb it.sometimes the ladders are a little way up so you might want to bring a ladder.and you might want to try and get a workers uniform so it looks like youre fixing the billboard

Hey, can somebody in here recommend some good caps for characters? I use mostly montana black cuz all the shitty cans cost even more than montana in here. Will the regular gray outline caps work well for that? Im not planing doing some super detailed stuff, just some simpler shit.

Bazer
09-10-2008, 03:33 PM
the gray ones work well. try using some black dots though theyre nice. i use black dots for everything.

Alright, I've got a little delima. I used to write with one name, a fellow writter gave me. I liked it and all, but 6 letters just got old. Now my town only has like 4 writters total and I know personally half of em. I want to change my name and I'm considering something currently, but I don't want to pick something that's already been taken. Is there like a compilation of famous or above average writters where I can search names?

Anyone else ever had Montana gold go nuts when you put an NY fat cap on it? I still don't paint anywhere (not until I consider my skill to be somewhat legit)...........but I practice in my backyard. I picked up a can of montana gold because they were on sale. I put on the ny fatcap and within a couple of minutes it was leaking all over. Is that normal?

its actually good, but dont worry about colours nor 3D. just keep trying it over and over, even when it starts getting annoying, thats how i learned and most of us here as well, and try to tweak around your letters and stuff.


to ate :

Dont worry about 3D yet, cause it seems like you dont know much about it, cause its kinda all over the place. one thing you need to do, is make your straight lines actually straight.
