    I still need to know how to customize tips

    Discussion started by versus5 - Jul 12, 2004

    Alright; bullshit!!!

    I'm talking about getting lines to be 12 inch or thinner, like using grey or gold dot caps, BUT manipulating a fat cap or a thin cap to make it ultra thin!

    It's not skill I need goddamn it, it's the fucking knowleage of different techniques; and I don't just mean cutting my lines.
    I've seen burners with ultra fine detail that was to accomplished by cutting lines; there is just no fucking way.

    If I'm wrong and there is not such thing as customizing tips to make them utlra fat or skinny, then please accuse me.

    Somebody please help me out

    There is no big secret to awesome outlines. You just have to paint a lot. 95% of all the burners you see are painted with the basic 5 caps: NY Fat, NY Thin, German Fat, German Thin, and Rusto Fats.

    If you want thin thin lines, use the german thin with low pressure.

    If you really need to do this, you're not painting big enough.

    Best advice yet!

    There are things you can do, but, as Swiff pointed out, common sense should help you on your path.

    Still, go bigger!

    Yeah, before I thought there was some kind of cap that made those "ultra thin lines." But there really isn't. What been said already is true. Paint bigger and "cut" lines. Don't be cheap.


    edit*
    By the way, when I said "some kind of cap that made ultra thin lines" I was refering to caps that can be bought. Not modifications that can be done to a cap.
