    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

    ergh! this brings back bad memories. i got bucket paint in my eye coz i was using an extension to paint high. that bitch freakin hurt! i had a red eye for about a couple weeks and i couldn't open it too much, and it was watering all the time and shit... fucking hated it... i dont wannaa remember lol

    but yeah, ribcage said it all right

    plastic bags are great for that, ive left rollers tied up in a wal mart bag for more than a week, and when i took it out, it was still wet, cleaned up just like it wouldve had it been fresh.

    Can someone help me choose my tag?
    I need something to go along with the letters B, R, and K only because I'm really comfortable adding style and flow to those letters.. I could just put BRK, but I don't wanna seem like a gang or something..

    yep yep, when doin something similar i had long hair and got a bunch of paint in it without noticing, changed my shirt and pants, started walking down the street, got stopped by mrs piggy, she asked what i was painting i said i didnt know what she was talking about, but blue paint in the hair was a dead give away

    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?

    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

    Hey where do you guys get the "Hello my name is" or the priority mail stickers from? Do you have to rack it?

    EDIT: Hey I found it online, its free but I just want to make sure this is the right one?

    I assumed I was going to be fine with the answer I gave, not knowing there was paint on me. I suppose i could have after the fact, but due to my record, I most likely would have had to have proof

    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.

    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
