    Hi guys, i wanted to fill a fire extinguisher with some paint but i can't seem to find one wich has a valve to pressureise it with a bicicle pump. Any of you have an idea where to get one like that?
    Sidenote: I don't want to buy one from Krink, way too expencive.
    Thanks

    Anyone ever tried using an extinguisher with ink instead of paint?

    No, but it'd be the same effect I assume. They're both liquids.

    the whole reason why you use house paint is so you can thin it down with water to make it runnier, which as a result makes it a similar consistency to ink, but not as runny as ink. filling an extinguisher with ink, instead of paint will be very messy, but also dramatically more expensive (in either money or time, thats if you decide to rack your stuff)

    I dont get why you would wanna use ink shit whould be expensive as fuck and would faid. Just go to home depot and get a gallon of oops paint and mix it with a gallon of water, i find that to be a good ratio. I have seen people cut the tips off calking and tapeing them to the nossel to have them spray farther but have never tried it. Personally i don't like them at chill spots because they drip and why ruin a nice piece with a tag, so keep them in the streets. Thats my bit of knowledge on them

    Before anyone even responded to that post I was already thinking about the cost difference. I wasn't asking for help working with paint though, only whether anyone had tried using ink. I'm more than aware how to get marked down gallons of paint from hardware stores.

    I'm with you on spot selection though. Always thought it was stupid to get up with an extinguisher someplace where you have all the time in the world. If it's height you're after, just use rollers. Save extinguishers for the spots you can't afford to linger at.

    That’s true I dislike when people use extinguishers at a good spot because it basically make a big part of a will hard to use or sometime unusable. One good spot got tore down because someone decided to cover the building in dicks so they destroyed the spot it was a chill as spot and you didn’t have to worry about cops or anything you could even paint in the day whelp now it’s gone
