    good can control requires full body movement, not just your hand/wrist/arm. make sure you have a solid base, feet shoulder width, and get used to bending those knees and leaning.

    also get the flow down by moving the direction of the can but not pressing the tip down a few times before spraying

    uh your telling me this why? This isnt a fuckin geometry class fool, the bluntness of the brick helps strengthen your hand, makes your skin tougher and your grip better. you obviously have little baby hand since you can handle brick tossing

    sharp and pointy are 2 completely different things, so stop changing your mind about it

    wtf is going on in this thread? is there some type of significance about the brick that i don't yet understand? if i unlock the secret as to whether bricks are sharp or pointy edged will that help me king the freeways or someshit?


    you want to steady your hand? draw more... your can control sucks? paint more. everyones shit is sloppy at first..the more you do it the more you excercise the fine muscles in your hands.. just like working out your biceps or abs you have to work out the muscles in your hands so to speak, the more you draw the better you get, if you stop drawing for a long period of time (and i can attest to this) your skills will start to deteriorate. the same thing applies with can control.



    go paint.

    how do you guys get clean, crisp lines when you paint? I know the deal with cuts and such but whenever i make a line even if it's somewhat crisp it always seems like theres a little bit of overspray or somethin and some of the color just mists a little past the edges which makes the lines look less sharp. Is this somethin with air pressure? Should i let some pressure out of the cans first?

    it has to do with the angle you are holding the can at. move your entire body and make sure that the angle you are using to point the cap stays the same for the entire length of the line. when you start altering the angle of the can you get the "mist" effect, and can use it for flares, blending, etc. or it could be the caps you are rocking and have nothing to do with your control. personally i love seeing throws with the outlines dusted at the top and bottom

    the brick is just a brick, and will always be a brick

    ian, snatch those bitches up, get a nice little stockpile going. if you ever dont feel like going out, go look at your paint stash and you will instantly grab 3 cans and your keys.

    oh i know, i keep all my paint in old 12 pack boxes, and i have 2 devoted to tall cans, i have 4-5 hard hats in there somewhere. i like seeing people who (if you are going to pay for paint) they hunt down them bargains. im all about some $1 rusto. and i was keeping it on the DL for a while, but if you guys have a lowes in your area, they are getting rid of rustoleum Amber Satin for $1.24 a can. i picked up about 20. most of the fills ive been doin are with that color. it doesnt cover too well, but i cant complain.
