Those are some sick ass flares
gayy... thats not you... llol
who even sad that this is me? -.-''
really.... your callin The Baze meister a noob.....?? It says one and only infront of his name for a reason haha
like noxi sad, those are sick ass flares.
(i don't like when somebody puts words in my mouth. ok?)
they said that the cap above is perfect for out lines and dont drip much
yea, but they aren't something special, believe me....
about this video, guy uses Astro cap i think or maybe Montana gold...
Needle Cap for Ultra thin lines, High pressure. Slightly hard to control, recomended for experrt users only.
The belton stocks only drip loads and have a fat line if you press down really hard since the belton cans have this special valve that if used properly it works very well with short bursts of paint kind of like sketching
it drips like a bitch, dont get it, just search it on youtube to find out
"recommended for expert users only."
something i found that helps is just like not gripping the can to tight just real loose. this way you have more control and your throws and shit will be lookin fresh in no time
swallow dem words captain
I think ny thins would work good for outlines because they come out pretty low pressure. At least the ny fats on my rustos do so it doesnt really drip.
Wow, a lot of you for some reason stick behind the idea "you just gotta go out and do it!" well thats true but that doesn't mean there aren't useful tips. Practice doesn't make perfect, perfect practice makes perfect. Its no good to tell a toy to "practice!" if he is practicing wrong.
I don't know about you guys, but I'm always tryin' to invent new ways to practice 'n shit, especially since I'm not painting right now.
One good thing to help you practice your can control is to just do lines. I saw this dude at a graff exhibit and I think he was only a legal eagle but he had mad shit, seen his portfolio and he does all kindsa 3d wildstyles - art student though.
But thats what he told me. He also said that krylon is pretty good and he used that a lot when he started, so don't get the idea that "ooh krylon just sucks!" because its like skating, if you skate with a shitty deck and can land a kickflip, then its not like its gonna be harder to do a kickflip when you get your new board.
Some shit I do too, is just pick up and cylinder and pretend that shit is a can, then just practice on a wall trying to move it around quick-slow- and at the same distance.
But if you really wanna practice can control without fucking up a lot of walls, GET SOME PRACTICE AEROSOL! What I mean, is any sort of cleaner like window cleaner, or what I use is steel cleaner at my work.
I've been sneakin' out the back lately and practicing my throws and tags on this big metal surface, its ill, it has a fat cap.
If you let your wrist flow and move around, your gonna get flares and shit, so if your not wanting to have an uneven width on your outline, practice keeping your wrist stiff - not too stiff, but so that when you are drawing a line and it goes out to the side, you don't let your wrist slid and end up doing a flare while begginning to shoot away from the wall.
But hey, I'm just a toy and these are things I'm doing for practice, its seeming to help but I guess I won't really know till I go out and try to piece again. I be practicin' straight letters and shit too...comin' out much better.
Ohh, and toys should definitely know that holding the can at angles produces different results, you can hold it parrallel to the wall, at an angle, etc. experiment and see what happens.
this might sound stupid,
but ive been trying to find some good caps for painting characters
lately ive just used NY thins, and German outlines
try grey dots nice thin lines personally i dont really like german outlines for any thing but tags but thats just me anyways
Late response but the caps i was talking about are commonly referred to as calligraphy tips since you can literally write calligraphic stuff with that cap, as for trying to do calligraphy without that tip good luck...about the only cool thing you can do with out calligraphy caps is flares...hope this helps
there is no way to "practice wrong"
every time you pick up a can you learn something new.
so GO PRACTICE.
