    Lookin for some advice with painting some long straight lines at wall - from 2m to even 6/8m. What u think is best option: Paint it like 2-3 separate shots? go with just one shot? or mby use tape when you dont need to hurry to much?

    I have a question about paper, to use with markers.

    I got a set of 12 markers, and a Montana A4 marker coated paper book, but it is only 36 pages.

    The paper is coated, but feels very similar to the printer paper I have 500 sheets of. Will using the markers on the printer paper make them run out faster? It's not rough like sketch paper, and drawing on it feels the same as the montana, I just don't want to use the wrong paper and run out the markers as they weren't exactly cheap.

    May I ask some advice about handstyle? Like, how do you start? Through talking to people here and through trial and error, I'm beginning to get the hang of throwie lettering and such, and I'm beginning to learn ways to learn.

    But how tf do you learn hand style lol. I canot even fathom how one would learn such a thing. Any tips on starting would be much apriciated

    i'm still toy, but look google "graffiti letter X" X being the letter you wanna see and there will be tons of differents styles. just make sure that all your letters are like the same style, don't want a all letters to be sharp and hard corners and one have flowy bubble like corner. you don't have to copy exactly like it. but it is good place to maybe get ideas on how to write certain letters

    Alphabets by writers are better than googling letters. Don't bite but you can learn from them

    You’re right Skrit. Just practice practice till you feel your own style! It will come!

    Yeah like the homie Skrit said, check out alphabets & get ideas of how the letters are written then picture how you can make those "ideas" your own. Then practice practice practice

    I heard if you do something a thousand times, youll be a master at it. I feel drawing the outline of the letter better prints the blueprint in your head than drawing each individual bar for a letter, imo thats exhausting and im lazy. draw the outline of the letter, if you fuck up the width, who cares finish the letter and only post after your 7th attempt or even more. Like i feel like the more you write the basic outline, the more youll see the invisible blueprint your mind creates on paper (like solving math problem in your head) and you will like just do your own thing and attach it to the letter structure.

    The paper should be able to soak up more ink so it will hold up better when you're blending/ coloring, etc. I don't think any specific type of paper will make your markers run out faster, that more depends on how much you lay down

    Woah interesting.
    By basic outline, do you mean on a thick letter? I've experimented a little with bars and such, but I find with the bars its very hard to write anything which isn't like block computer font like this is written in.
    BLU it looks just like that lol

    Ill post in ms paint later today what i mean, by outlining letters instead of doing bars. For now i mean drawing the shape of the letter without the use of bars. Like drawing a triangle or square from scratch, draw the shape of the letter.

    How long does a 400ml can last?

    I've been working on paper since I started and I just ordered my first cans. 1 white and 1 blue 400ml can. I have a throwie planned for the middle of may but I want to practice before it. I don't want to run out before then tho so I was wondering how much you can do with a single can.
    Thanks ^,^

    A 400ml can do about 2m^2 of solid fill if you do it right. If you aren't doing a solid fill then more. They last about 3seconds for me when I paint.

    I may not even practice anything noticeable, just some doodles to grasp the can technique.

    disegnare molto, quindi provare a lavorare su superfici verticali attaccando un foglio alla parete, quindi provare a creare disegni sempre più grandi, quindi iniziare a simulare con lo spray per disegnare pannelli lunghi almeno 1,5 metri, quando sei bravo a questi esercizi possiamo parlare usando i barattoli ... è l'unico modo per non sprecare lo spray IMG_20180415_201406.jpg
