    Ok, A while back i wanted to get into handstyle writing. I stared out with one of those industrial black permenants writing under Z.O.E and a pending name until I came up with something better. I boosted a few Prismacolor markers today (a pretty damn good upgrade) and some paint markers, and made up the name Lo Ark. Anyway, I know that when starting handstyle you should take it slow and develop your own style, but I was just wondering for future use, what are so handstyle techniques? I mean today I was practicing and got a really nice flair, then I tried it again and couldnt, so I was just wondering some so I could practice. Thanx :ph34r:

    There are two different kinds of Montana (apparently). Spanish and German. Spanish is the stuff BS sells in the online store. I'm not sure which is better because I've only tried the German, and it's damn good.

    you can go to michaels and buy things called zig poster markers
    those work really well
    sharpe sells a magnum marker

    just make it up
    my ex girlfriends dad who does graff
    told me to just keep writing your style over and over
    and you will learn it

    Generally with handstyles (throw-up's aswell) as you keep doing them they change and advance. Sometimes it's deliberate, sometimes it's not.

    don't listen to the people who are telling you not to use a prisma for developing a tag. yeah they're no good to be tagging shit with because they're nice markers made for dope coloring, but your racking them so it doesn't matter.
    for your purposes, they'll do just fine. i've seen some dope prisma handies. it more or less comes down to the chisel tip.
    i wouldn't recommend using a magnum or pilot for this simply because the nib is so large. one tag will take up most of a notebook page.
    what i would recommend you do is get a notebook at the dollar store, and pretty much anything with a chisel tip, and cover every page with handstyles.
    after a few dozen filled notebooks, and a couple months of diligent practice, you should have something to work with.

    oh, and do what name said.
