    you mean like when youre using a rusto ornage dot for a fill and it sounds like somebodys just turned on a garden hose? i guess the only solution is to just use thins all the time and take five times as long to do your shit.
  4. I think he might be talking about cans rattling? i heard if you put a magnet on the bottom of the can it will stop it from rattling/

    that would work if the mixing ball was composed of a metal that a magnet could stick to...most mixing balls are glass marbles unfortunately...i think they use metal bearings in most laquer paint...but not rusto, aa, or krylon...i got a few cans of belton that seem to have metal bearings in them, but i really dont care about keeping my cans quiet...they stay reletively quiet for me...if youre carrying a bag just make sure they are upright and they wont make that much noise. cans on their sides are much noisier...its a sad fact of life that cans make noise...deal with it...

    I got this one, I wrap all of my cans in a soundproof eggcrate. This keeps them silent.

    here are some ways of reducing noise....
    bring full cans wrap them in a shirt or 2 that will reduce the noise.....
    shake the cans b4 u go to the spot duh?
    figure the amount of cans you're gonna need and just take that. that way when u are done u can throw the empty cans in the garbage nearby.....

    keep cans upright, and wrap in [soundproofing material such as a t-shirt, paper towels, backpack, etc] and then proceed to your destination.

    all you have to do is keep them upright and walk steady. wrapping isn't even necessary.

    there was a foreign exchange student named yost when i was in highschool.

    true, wrapping them in clothing reduces noise alot, especailly something like a puffy jacket from the salvation army....who cares if its bright blue and has barney pictures on it, its $14 and reduces can noise

    while you're walking around and they're in your bag? just fucking pack them in nice, use a shirt or something to stick in there to make sure they are packed tight,,,

    i hate painting with someone who's bag is all jingling and shit walking to a spot.
