    I was down in Nashville this weekend, and the Home Depot down there had switched out basically every Painters Touch with the new line...

    Anyone know where to order caps that fit a male can valve system?

    when i use the american accents i ussually just use it for an outline. the caps on them produce a good clean line. med-skinny. but i mostly use montana and belton. i get hooked up.

    I already tried WD40 caps on a Krylon Fusion can which have male valves and it doesn't work, I tried lots of other female caps too, and none seem to fit the male valves, so I doubt it will work on the new Painters Touch cans. I guess we'll have to find some kind of adaptor to allow male caps to fit on the new cans. All the Painters Tough cans I've racked recently have female valves, so they must have not changed it over in Canada yet.

    I live in Michigan & the only male valves I've seen are on the gloss painters touch. I love the American accent colors... all of them. I hope they don't change.

    I went to home depot today and they had a lot of awesome colors definately more than usual, I bought a couple of can, and as I was leaving I remembered this thread checked and they were male cans. So I went back and returned them...

    If anyone wants female caps Mtn Colors sells them from their website because their classic cans have male valves. Here's a link to their caps they have fats and skinnies, I'm thinking about ordering some myself.

    Yes it does. They are trying to market their new comfort tip, and see how it sells. It's basically a beta test of paint. But, who knows how long they plan to keep them.[/b][/quote]
    that doesn't make sense, they're just European style caps, you can get male them or make them already. Why would they spend the money to change the cans when they could just make a male european style cap?

    Tresseme hair spray caps work. or save some lunch money and go to mtn's website and order the mtn classic caps for male valve cans Just because you graff doesnt mean that everything has to be fuckin free man and anyways with enough practice you can just learn how to get use to the caps the only problem i see is that since they are any angle spray it doesnt let you spray out some extra pressure.

    Word. just use the stocks
    One nice thing about the new valves is that you can spray at any angle. so I can tag the ground better, which might seems stupid but its fun sometimes

    can you still clear the caps by turning the can upside down?

    no thats one of the problems with the any angle spray. you just have to take the cap off and blow through it but try and do it before it clogs cause chances are you cant blow hard enough to clear the clog.

    yeah I just got a can today, you can't clear the valve like normal, but I think it would be good if you were upside-down painting on a bridge. I'm surprised, I really like the new valve, you can get super skinny lines it you press lighter, then you can get bigger than a stock cap if you press harder. Plus this is using the same cap. Maybe I'll take some pictures to show.

    yea the valve is decent now try and use it to throw down your outline its very possible just not as easy as being able to use a german outline. I see homies that can pull it off like its a regular can but they've also been paintin 10+ years
