    Ok, first off im a fuckin toy..and this is the TOOLS AND TIPS section, so dont bitch at me for what is prolly gunna be a *newbie* question for yall people who been doin' this for a long time.

    First off, i got a long art background and all that so i know all about art and shading, etc. I just got into graf like 2 weeks ago and i was lookin for some tips on filling in your outline. What is the proper technique so that the paint wont glob, drip, and look like pure shit. How do u get it smooth and even all throughout?

    And i kno yall say experiment and shit, and i have been. . . I just need a technique to point me in the right direction. Like, the motion of the spray stroke, prefered cap to use, etc... just some basic info guys to get me started.

    thanks if u can help.

    and dont be an ass i kno im a toy lol ;)

    so do you just make quick, sweeping motions to get a good cover, then just sweep over that layer to get the paint coverage you want? like when ur fillin in an outline.

    to prevent blobs and drips dont keep your can in the same spot. you should make the fill first then go over it to make the outline.

    Depends on the cap son--Pink dots and caps without the plastic limitor in the hole where the paint comes out--only requires one fast ass sweep over--cuts down on time and everything--only problem is you need a thin to hit up a touch up to make it look completely filled---and drips are bitches too--but you can throw shit up inna instant.

    But yes you have it right for making quick sweeps...im just being retarded n getting technical ;)

    You could let it drip so you have some good drip FX.

    i dont believe you have a long art backgorund...because its not hard to figure out you just fill it in...spray pant goes on flat so unless you load it up and go real slow its not gunna drip easily

    i definetly do have a long art background... been doin art since i could hold a pencil. Im just new to graffiti... ive never used spray paint to make art before, so yea, im not familiar with the techniques... so of course i would have questions to find out how to use it. But yea, anything from charcoal, graphite portraits, clay, pastel, pretty much anything... just wanna expand my horizons wit graf. I was just lookin for some good techniques to help... dont mean i dont kno about art...
