    Yea maybe wait till the fill drys a bit maybe its kinda mixing or something.

    But yeah, go real fast with the outline and hold it prettty closeish but not real near to it.

    thanks for the tips, but one thing, when i spray far away on the outline the line goes too big and looks pretty nasty, what should i do about that?

    Well always keep the can upright, not sure that has anything to do with it, but do it anyway ;), and keep it quite close to the wall, but as car2 said, not too close as you'll get some nasty drips. So just mid way between the two!!!

    Trial & error. You can't read about how to paint or hold paint properly, get out there and do it.

    the type of surface your writing on will also affect your can control, it took me awhile to do a freight

    the paint u use and the surface both effect ur control, its harder to wrtie on slick surfaces then rough surfaces, if ur getting like one or two drips thats fine but if ur getting like mad crazy drip then u need practice

    ano this is off topic but i just have to tell u that the sketch in ur sig is nice. really like it.

    (no more beef) B)
     
  13. 2 drips or so won't really make a difference, but if you're getting alot of drips, just keep the can from a close distance away, not too far, not too close, and make fast clean strokes.

    After a while, you'll have good can control.

    lol i h8 having to move fast cos you overshoot lines and stuff. On the montana website it says to hold the can upside down and spray and it will release some pressure or sumfin.

    Drips are cool, but not when you want them.
    Lots of good advice here already but I'll add a point I think has been missed.
    When painting the out line move your hand at a moderately fast pace but remember to release your finger off the cap the instant the line you're painting has been finished. If not done right the last couple of inches of the outline will have more paint than the rest and will definate;y drip.
    I hope this helps.

    Peace
