    it should sound rather whack but here it goes...

    i figure i can get my name up at better times, better spots, and more often if i find something i can write on rugged concrete with. mop? thicker ink? please help i hate seeing shitty dull tags on concrete poles. it's sort of a tougher surface and meanstreaks and poster markers filled with ink do not react well.

    Rugged concrete? I would say a black pilot tbqh. The nib puts up and its thick. Either that get these:

    And fill it with your shit if you're into colours.

    Chalkboard eraser nibs usually put up throught some rough surfaces for me.

    Tried getting some silver caligraphy ink today at micheals but i was nt about to shell out $8 for it. I was just going to put it in a box of higgins, buy and get out bc my micheals is sketch as it is. Well i was just about to transfer the inks when a store manger comes up and pretends to take inventory. He sttod there until i left. After I saw him leave I went back and someone else stood at the other end of the aisle and he stood on the other end. I just said fuck it and got a silver marker and used that ink.

    I added a little too much silver to my green ink but I'll just add some more ink later...

    He was standing right next to me?

    edit- plus when i was reading the label on the caligraphy it was water removal. And when you mix it with ink it rises to the surface so it would for sure be washed away quickly. But I'm really loving how my green ink turned out. I would post pictures but I dont have a camera.

    sounds like tijuana to me. walkin in n out of a mexican autozone gets suspicious. heh

    to keep ink related

    it takes more linseed oil to thin down paint then it does thinner

    to stupid?
    1/2 thinner + 1/2 paint = thin as a mother fucker fades at top
    1/2 linseedoil + 1/2 paint = pretty dam thick shit.
    soooo. double ur stocks with linseed oil =D

    well...its free hahah. i like it. more paint for ur buck.


    its better. linseed oil is the base for all oil based paints which means no streaks "unless u thin it a bunch" so yeah. its worth racking. u can go 1/2 paint 1/2 linseed and itll still be the same and double ur paint. only downside is the more oil the longer it takes to dry.

    btw that yellow rapes :)
