    keep your empties yo clean your caps so you dont waste pressure in cans with paint. if i have clogged caps i put them in thinner for a while and then just clean them out with an empty

    theres already a bunch of threads on this

    new yorkers get clogged easily. what i usually do is take the nozzle of and blow in it after ive been painting for about 10 minutes, then put back on. or when i'm done, hold the can upside down and spray out a quick spray. just some personal status. peace.

    The easiest thing to do is once your finished painting with your tips is invert your can so its upside down and spray till no paint is comming out just aerosol. this will spray out any wet paint keeping the tip clean and this ensures that you wont have tips clogging up, or sprayin out puny ammounts of paint.
