    im sick of buying shitty colors that dripp like mad or have crazy overspray or the lines are totally transparent or blochy...... so i thought everyone could list brands / colors of paint they knew were shitty. also, brands / colors that wont work over eachother. some paint just wont coat over other paint. some premium decor wont go over krylon and vice versa.

    heres a few
    1. belton: white - dripps like crazy (at least for me today)
    2. kyrlon gloss: cherry red, royal blue, sun yellow, pumpkin orange? white, black.
    3. premium decor: powder white (dope color)- overspray

    yeah,sun yellow is useless and it took a full can of pumpkin orange for one letter that really wasn't all that huge..last time I ever used it.-Violet also sucks.....don't know about Belton-never used it before.I have had good luck with Red Devil lately.

    all colors will work under the right circumstances. that popsicle orange will work like a champion over a yellow/orange/red background. violet over a baby blue background...etc etc. if you plan ahead a little bit youd be surprised what you can do with shitty paint. dont rule them out, use them in the right situations.

    on a semi related note, be careful of grape satin krylon. it will tint lighter colors sprayed over it. your white cuts just might turn out to be pink.

    satin grape is crap regardless.it'll turn to teal green after a while.trust me.the color in general is not a good grape.it's too grayish.try american accents grape if you can find it.

    it seems like when i mix two shitty paints (like walmart colorplace) then I get better colors and better paint that goes on smooth.

    Would everyone on this thread (except beardo who has the knowhow and patience to do otherwise) please switch to Rustoleum products. All complaints about watery, thin, not cutting, etc. will magically vanish. (And be replaced by "what's with that stutter when you first depress the cap".)

    I certainly like Hobby Lobby's selection of Krylon.

    walmart wont have bleton because its a german brand of paint that is usually only found in america in stores specifically for writers (at least in my experiences). i dont know if its the cold or ive been using the wrong belton colors but they all seem a little watery to me. theres dope colors tho. as far as cracked ass's comment... that would greatly reduce the selection of colors available. ive never used a rusto that was watery or had much overspray but ive never found it great for outlines or shells. i usually stick to fills with rusto. it covers good. montana is dope. solid, thin, lies, dope color selection.... i have had some drips but i again i dotn know if its from the cold or what...
