looks like shit.
edit: how the fuck can you not figure out acrylics... wow.
cus i made the mistake of filling up a whole bottle before i tested it and now it looks shite, i dont know if its the marker not letting enough through, i used a bingo dabber with stock tip but with flow restrictor taken out and that came out better than bingo dabber with felt, i'm gonna go make some small samples now
edit: could've been the paint, it was childs redimix paint but it did say on the side 'dilute with water if necessary'
you dont need good acrylic to make it look good man.
i use dollar store paint and it works perfectly.
Here is some Zenstar Ocean Crunk.. (It is acrylic based but with some ingredients that
are rare and kinda hard to get if you don`t have bees at home ... Yes my father is
a beekeeper and I`m allergic to bee stings.. kinda ironic isn˙t it?)
(The lines are streaky because of the shitty marker I used(I just wanted to
see how the colour comes out ) )
ye, might it be the silver, has anyone ever made acrylic silver? might be something in it like silver spray paint just absorbs paint and is a bugger to paint over, i got a 99p 500ml green, i'll try that
ive never tried silver, id stick to silver gk if i were you, try and make the colors really poppy with acrylic
what is goof off
its a professional strength graffiti remover
it contains xylene and toluene among other things
this summer i worked for the city and had to buff some graffiti and goof off is actually pretty good.
was it community service for getting caught?
and how would you compare my ink to stuff you buffed?
no man it was actually a summer job i had and got paid 9.50 an hour ahahaha,
but anyways thats the best ghost i've seen all summer, and thats no lie hombre.
haha if i got paid to buff stuff, id start with the people i got beef with.
read my mind ahaha
it was cool cause id know everywhere id go buff the next day, so i can actually SEE which ink really beats the buff. Oink indoors kills, i started removing it with goof off and it started to smudge EVERYWHERE, making a bigger mess than before, so my boss just told me to put some primer on it, but it kept bleeding through and after 3 coats, he just gave up hahaha
but yeah vagrant, no ink ive buffed, besides grog, came out with a ghost that dense
can u tell me exactly how you got the job?
i need money to finance my graffiti purposes =D
kinda late but i dont think thats acrylic. judging by the "redimix ten" id say its tempera which is worse than acrylic. its used at schools because its cheaper and easier to remove than acrylic.
when you can see through the paint (what's left of it) that means there's too much water...use very little water when you play around with acrylics...it don't look like much,but a little water thins that shit out alot....use that 'flow release' stuff by "golden" if you wanna thin the paint....water just takes away from the paint...
awesome, thanks for the feedback
btw: it is TEMPERA!!...
you can see on the pic of the bottle it says:"redimix Tem(pera)"
it looks like the surface is repelling the water-based paint because of what's already on it.
try the same mixture on a different surface.
some surfaces such as doors will repel it also so try to bomb anything unprimed like raw wood or concrete and see how that turns out.
oh and yeah try to buy paint that actually says 'acrylic'
because it's better than that poster paint.
like somebodys already said
AND the stuff in bottle is generally already thin, especially tempera.
so just put some(without water) in a nice free flowing soft marker
and squeeze the fuck out if it / take out the regulator / rough up the nib if it's still not decent.
