    To start developing my handstyle I gotta start writing out my name simple right?
    so just writing keyboard fonts and shit or what?
    is there a way I'm supposed to write it?

    So basically write my name OVER AND OVER again till i develop some style to make a decent tag?

    yes boss!
    practice makes perfect.
    try and look at other tags and try and get the flow going with your name if you know what i mean. just keep repeating and repeating and repeating.

    depends on the paint, you definitely dont want it too thin. a normal is 1/3 but for some bucket paint you don't even need that much.

    Thats not junobo. Junobo is 2/3 white rusto, 1/3 oil based tube paint (or another color. You can mix paint and water as long as it is acrylic because acrylic is water based.
