    well i use montana hardcore. i used to have some molotow, but i ran out and all i could find on the net was mtn. you cant get krylon here in the UK (or at least i dont think so). i use one of those calligraphy caps for tagging now. random effects (much like a chisel tip - only BIGGER)

    back 2 pages, theres people hollerin go slow, go fast, go fuck urself?... i think it really depends on what your comfortable with. Jus buy cheap walmart paints and keep trying... practice when ever you can, even when you dont have a can, pretend you have one. Thats what i do wen im boored and paintless... i pretend to paint

    get some good cans to get used to and practice and some tips to try out. Since the winters coming- you might freeze your ass off but practice in the snow like in a fresh spot. That way if you mess up, you just shovel it up or mix it around. Its not good for the cans but if its practice it shouldnt matter.

    start out w/ some krylon or similar and just go out and practice practice practice. if you have control w/ watery krylon when u move up to the thicker stuff it'll be very easy. In hawaii mtn and molotow are near impossible to get w/ out paying ridiculous shipping costs so the only choice to use is rusto or krylon. a good writer will be able to control his/her paint even if its the shitty colorplace cans, it just come down to the time you've put into practicing. also choice of caps will help reduce drips ie. silver fat might give you problems on a watery paint like krylon but and orange dot wont.

    can of black with a feathery fat cap, took the can of white and went around the outside eliminating the very black part. So you're left with what just looks like a shadow. it's simple once you get the idea.

    Can anyone shed some light on the topic of can pressure? Like what to use high/low pressure cans for?
    I was doin some flares with a pinkdot and some Krylon and the can had way too much pressure, so I let some out and had better results. Anyone have anything to add on this subject?

    you must be reeeeeal sloppy...and that was the most randomly retarded thing in this thread

    i saw this new decopaint at wal mart kinda weird shaped and has a pretty good color range. I tried one to see how they are....kinda transluscent, and REALLY REALLY thin line capability....and fairly low pressure, i cannot remember the name but theyd be good for canvas...they are short and wide with a pale yellow label. [/b][/quote]
    Kilz...maybe? I love their colors and their caps are like german thins.
    and for the record....

    For Everyone.

    High Pressure - when you press down no matter how hard as long as the aero is flowing paint will come...

    Low pressure - if you press down light you dont get fucked up drips down your hand you get a lighter shading effect

    For pieces, low. For a quick fill on a throwie I would say, high.

    i heard montana gold has high and low pressure combined or something.
    when i press down light with gold, it's like low pressure, and when i press it down hard, it's like high pressure =)
    (montana is one of the cheapest paint here, so it's not a waste of paint/money for me)
