    I'll help you out. Okay. For throws do an outline in the color you want to have as the fill in. If you don't want to get caught I suggest you use a german fatcap.
    Then you fill in this area. When you fill, move the can side to side, so all of your lines will be the same direction as eachother. This is how everyone fills, and it saves paint.
    Now do your outline. You can use a thin cap preferably.
    Anymore questions?

    Also, Its good to keep your stock caps. They are great caps for the forcefield of your bomb. For quick fills I would reccomend a Pink Dot ultrafat cap, and for your outlines get some German Outlines 2 caps. On another note, you obviously are a beginner at Graff, don't waste your money on Montana.

    dont use german fats(orange dots) or german jumbos(pink dots) for ur fill, ull only get one fill in with one can. use a rusto fat for your fill and outline and dont make ur fill solid. montana xl's are the same paint as hardcore, just a bigger can.

    Hmm.. I don't recall that happening to me before but yes Rusto Fats are also a good fill cap.

    LISTEN UP... All you need is NY Thins and NY Fats. Fats for the fill and thins for the outlines. When you get better, invest in some different caps.

    And don't worry about shit that's hard to buff yet, you're just a beginner. You don't want your nasty shit riding forever, it's only going to embarass you 6 months from now if you're still in the game.

    Yeah, just stick to krylon, rusto, etc. Personally I think new yourk fats are good fillers, but they have that hollow look if you know what I mean.

    not in my experiences...they cover a larfer area but you have to move the can a lot slower....i prefer just a normal fat cap..(whatever one comes on the can)

    if you havent noticed, you'll get many suggestions on which cap to use for certain things because some caps sorta' give similar results but fit better on different manufacturers cans. rubbish gave good advice to you as a beginner when he said to stick with ny skinnys and ny fats because its better to get to know the basics well first.
    i personally like to fill with rusto fats.
    i still rock the rusto and krylon (even though krylon bites, its got an okay color selection)

    Thats the best part, man! Well, I personally love ghost fills where you can see the streaks of lines going back and forth, which is exactly what you will get if you use a NY Fat. If thats not your thing then get some Rusto caps, they are in the same size range (if not exactly the same size) as a NY Fat, but a bolder line.

    Why do you think Krylon bites? I do like Rusto better.. but I think that Krylon is a fine paint. I don't find anything wrong with it, but it did take some getting used to the first time I used it. Its a little bit runny, but it takes time to get used to.

    ^^^ yea i used to think that too. i dont know brothah'... its too thin and runny plus i've had cans of krylon with weak valves that spray around the cap stem. its just lesser quality. but i like the colors.

    push it down and move slowly, but since your dont know how to do "cool ass drips" im guessing your handstyle isnt very good in the first place...in wich case you should be working on that insted of the drips.
