    Mmmmm, Paint.

    Yes it holds a special place in the graffers heart. I don't rack and I enjoy buying it - usually online at Graphotism.com.

    As for brands don't really see Rusto or Kry over here... I prefer Montana Gold, cause it's the best really, but I've tried Belton as well. I found that belton is a bit of a chunkier valve system and stank a bit more like licorice wire, or something.

    Problem with Monty Gold is that they prefer their own Caps and tend to just sputter when it's a normal German, etc. I guess it makes Montana marketing happy but it's a bit of a pain for the humble bomber...

    Peace :ph34r:

    i see it like this, walmarts for the fills, krylons for the fine lines. i've never used a belton or a montoya, probly cause waiting for the order to get to my house and all that $ for one can is too much for me.

    word! i love those damn banana caps.
    i used to buy them allthe time from bombshelter. but they dont carry them no more? the only ones i have here are clogged as FUCK! bombshelter only carries those grey german outlines with the black dot. anyone else know where to buy banana caps?

    oh and umm i also like the 'skinny white beige' those caps are fucking amazing for outlines, i would say its just as good, or better then the banana. but i wouldnt know i havent been able to compare it properly.

    rustos are good with german skinnys and rusto fatties (the "orange dot")

    All i can say is used cheap paint and stock caps.

    and krylons got some new (well, re-realeased) paint at canadian tires near you, and if your near me, leave it alone please.

    this is probably going a lil over the top but what i think would kick ass is having like a thing of paint in a book bag and having a tube run from that to a little thing on your finger and have it spray out of the thing on ur finger all though it would probably only work for a outline and a fill

    christ i dont know

    leave me alone!!

    Paint is fucking paint. You can be a wack writer and throw up a wack piece with the best paint out there. Or u can be dope and throw up a burner with 99 cent paint. Some paint just comes out a little better and is brighter and bolder. And some people just like the presure some paint gives.

    i dont know if this is on this forum yet, but this is for stencil caps! its probably the best one yet.

    [i take no credit for this, except for copying and pasting it on here.
    i got it from 12ozprophet]

    "1 Tools. You will need an X-acto knife with a SHARP blade, a lighter of some sort, and a lid off of your favorite spray can (Krylon lids work well).

    2 You will start by cutting out the middle of the lid. This tube is what actually SNAPS to the spray can and holds the lid on.

    3 Discard the rest of the lid and this is what you end up with. You will use this to construct your stencil cap.

    4 Now, carefully cut out the “finger hole” as shown. It’s more of a square shape that goes down the side of the tube, as well as on the top. Remember to keep a strip of plastic at the bottom of the tube or else your finished cap will not SNAP onto the can, thus it will not work.

    5 Using the tip of your X-acto blade as a drill, bore a small “spray hole” on the opposite side of your finger hole. This hole should be approximately in the middle of the tube. The SIZE of the whole determines the effect you get – so play around with a couple different caps. You can also try different shape holes, and multi-hole stencils!

    6 After you drill your spray hole, I recommend using your lighter to smooth it out a little. Just heat it up quickly, and pay attention to the melting plastic.

    Here’s the good news! Stencil caps work nicely with Krylon STOCK TIPS. Place your stencil cap onto the can as shown.

    Now line up your tip with the spray hole, make sure you can get your finger in there, and HAVE FUN.

    [Broken External Image]:http://www.freshsites.com/images/AAW101.jpg

    PLEASE NOTE: Stencil caps are messy. Be aware that excess paint collects in the cap and that you must dump it out occasionally. Sometimes they are a pain in the ass and they like to splatter. Like any other technique, this takes practice – and sometimes the cap you make is just a piece of crap. They can also be tricky to get off of the can, so be patient.


    some people also call these caps Zap caps- or HEX caps named after the guy who invented them. "
