    I'm wanting to do a fairly large roller, but I'm unsure how to get a perfect line and angle rather than just roller control(?). Any tools you guys would recommend or is it better to just eyeball it?

    Eyeball it..
    It's not as hard is it looks

    But you shouldnt really be trying rollers just work on your letter structure

    I have a question. When I do a throwie I use my fill color first for an outline, then fill that all in. But then when I go grab another color and start to do my outline, I get lost, like I can't see where my letters are going to start and end, so when I outline it the letters are horid. What should I do?

    Well this is the roller I want to try. Tell me what to fix as far as structure. And roller makes it sound like I'm trying to do it bigger than I am. I want each letter to be maybe 7 foot high with it spanning maybe 12-14 feet. I guess I could do that with cans, but I'd like to learn to do rollers.

    As for the throwie question. I don't know what to tell you. Maybe practice doing dusty throws that way you can still see that line you made to outline your fill. Then after you get the motion of your throw you won't have to do it dusty anymore. Best advice I know to give.

    first roller? u can goahead and forget about "clean lines". depending on the surface it might take 2 or 3 coats per letter. so use your time wisely. id get some hommies together for all massive rollers, line out the letters and have your buddies help u fill it in.

    rollers are nice cus u can cover a lot of space, and its thick paint so its faster depending on the spot.

    do not, i repeat, DO NOT use cans only. if u want cracks or some addons then sure use cans but they are called rollers for a reason.

    A dusty throw is a throwup where the fill in isn't perfectly complete, sometimes leaving gaps.

    For example this nest throw.

    See how he doesn't have an opaque fill and you can still see his first outline? Do it like that. Hope this helped.
