    What kind of paint are you using?
    Krylon + Pink dot = Definite flairs
    Its all in your wrist btw.

    @ spraycan stories
    pull away from the wall and flick up.
    and when at the bottom of the tag bring the can close to the wall and work faster and sharper.
    this is a new york fat with a can of mtn hardcore.
    did it in winter, wack but i like the flares.

    just practice and you'll get it

    I use rusto with rusto fats, and krylon if i find the ones with normal caps.
    I actually think i found my problem i flick up and stop spraying, i tihnk im supposed to spray a little longer to allow the line to widen.
    Thats just a guess that hit me.
    Thanks a lot by the way.

    I'd say Krylon flares best with an Ny Fat. I don't know what you're talking about with the wrist, I tried using wrist flickage for a year and it never gave me a clean flare once.

    I'd say the trick is to use an Ny Fat, hold the can perfectly upright and start from far away from the wall for the fat ends of the flare and move the can in towards the wall to tighten up the lines. Holding the can upright as much as possible is crucial though..

    i do exactly what dsub is saying. for starters it gives you those nice dots popping at the top when you bring your line up and back down quick.
    and JackieChanRollin ahaha nice username, your right about the timing, i thought you already knew that, which is why i never spoke of it really

    Yeh. Agreed. Starting from the top and coming down is way easyer. And you can get real nice results with it. But not with NY fats. Pink dots or orange dots work best. (In my opinion)

    hey im glad u use krylon and rusto.
    they are great american brands and are underrated in the graffiti community.
    it takes real talent to use that stuff cuz unlike montana companies and belton and all that artsy garbage
    rusto is made for rusted steel. it takes more skill, but its worth it, plus you'll save alot.

    and heres hints for RUSTOLEUM/PAINTERS TOUCH...

    -only good for fast high pressure fills.
    they're not that wide. and they dont really flare.

    -(OLD CANS) use NY FATS they work great.
    and NY THINS they work great.
    and GERMAN OUTLINE 1 they work super great for thin lines.

    OH and FOR krylon is going down the drain...
    its only good for tags
    cuz its not thick enough to cover tough shit like raw wood and raw concrete.
    BEST flare with any EURO FAT CAPS
    NY FAT is a huge plus homie.

    idk how to answer that cuz i never had can control problems with outlines or drips, my only problem was the speed and size that i painted at. i guess i can say this though: swing your arm fast instead of doing it slow and trying to make it perfect, this helps prevent drips.

    word.and try not to hold the can too close to the wall for too long.i like to let my hand follow my eyes to the point i want the line to go.this usually helps me get cleaner straight lines.i really dont know how to explain that better but since ive been doing that i havent missed the point where my lines connect like i used to.whatever i havent yet mastered my can control completely anyways ive been a paperboy for a while haha.

    im pretty new to it so my 2 cents worth mite not be upto much, however... i found that the further away the can was from my body the more inacurate the paint was, so keeping the can close to my chest and moving my body instead really helped my lines. its not always possible but it really helped me out :)

    practice with really shitty cans, and do everything with really shitty cans when you start out so you get amazing can control so when you move onto ironlak and montana it is so much easier.
