    Cheapest place to buy Sakuras
    http://markingdevices.americanmarki...84620-jpg-markal-ball-paint-marker?&forward=1

    Relatively cheap Uni-Paints (but you're better just stealing these)
    http://markers4u.us.com/uni-paintmarkersbroadpx-30.aspx

    Decent selection
    http://www.markingpendepot.com/

    Best place to buy Mighty Markers (Krink K-71's with ink that's not quite as good, but still good.)

    You're welcome. I have more sites, depending on what specifically you're looking for.

    ^^exactly what I do, but i go to lowes and buy the discounted bucket paint, and just mix that shit for different colors, and if you ever need a replacement nib you could always order some from BS, or just go grab another mop

    just put some thinner to make it a bit more fade resistant and bleed thru

    Paint thinner has nothing to do with helping to protect from fading,infact acrylics(or any water based paint) wont even mix with paint thinner,in most situations it actually just makes the water based paint thicker.

    Okay so I made some paint a while ago.
    Put it in a mop used it a bit.
    And now my mop is warping? thats what some people called it
    the plastic seems to get thinner?
    Its just some ghetto junobo with only paint thinner added

    any ideas on how it could happen?
    or how to prevent it?

    PS. I put the remaining paint i made in a 1L bottle, same happened...

    I've got a question here. when using a marker out on the street, sometimes you write on certain surfaces without noticing that they're a bit dusty, either because it's night, or because the dust's color is kinda clear
    so you do a tag on it and your marker's nib collects all the dust and gets real dirty and it won't write anymore.
    I know that I should touch the surface to check for dust before tagging, but in the cases when you forget, how do you fix the nib or clean it on the spot? without having to actually do a whole operation on it? :p

    it says buff proof i find depends on what paint they use around my area if it slightly fades thru the dark grey they buff with they'll just use black and fuck you over
