    Aight people, it seems there are always specific threads about this and that bout spray paint, so im opening this (thinking that im cool) so that way all spray paint questions concerning brands and shit like that blah blah blah........ So ima start this bitch off by askin what you all think bout this America's Finest by Rustoleum. I have only used popsicle orange which is alright , it aint the best or the worst cuz for the price of a $1.25 its okay with me...:mexican:

    fuck yeah, americas finest. the ultra flat black is the same as krylons, but half the price. wanna fill in black? save money and only use the krylon for detail and cuts. the flat white is relly watery

    opinions vary on what's better. molotow(belton) or montana. personally, they've both got qualities that i like but i prefer the belton. on the real though, rusto is some seriously good paint so don't sleep on the hometown stuff with all this fancy paint craze going on lately...

    american accents summer squash is the best yellow i've ever seen. actually, american accents in general is pretty good, thick like rusto, nice colors.. for some reason i can't outline with krylon. i don't know what i'm doing wrong, but everytime i try, it comes out in a fat line, really drippy, even when i let the pressure out of the can, go right up against the wall and do my lines as fast as i can.. it's strange..

    nice poll. id rather use krylon cause its not as taxed as the rest. plus its quality. but they keep discontinuing good colors.

    hipnos after you shake your can to paint with it, hold it upside down and spray to let some pressure out. with the less pressure outlining is easier and getting thin lines is muchos easier.

    Rusto Gusto

    I haven't experimented with every color of every brand, and I don't do much in can mixing, but my favorite is Painter's Touch from Rusto, or just plain Rustoleum. I've rocked some American Accents for some of the blue shades and I've also tried out OSH brand, but that is about it. The cheap-o brands are thin. I've only used Krylon when no other wa available, and didn't notice much of a difference, but that was only once or twice. I find that a fat cap on some Painters Touch works great and if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Like Seen says, "Holding a can of Rustoleum is like holding three other shit brands." Price isn't as much of a concern when you're racking.

    Maybe somebody could post what caps work well with what brands. What works best in terms of thickness, spray control, permenence, price, and color selection.

    I suppose this thread would be the place for that... or start another and leave this one as a poll.

    sizeroks is right, montana is the best of both worlds. also, a lot of caps work on them, which is another plus. the only bad thing is the high price. :spent: as far as quality goes, it's awesome.

    good list, it will help alot of people, someone should just make a new thread post all the info on what caps go with what cans and perma-bump it ..its always good info

    it gets weird though will the more rare caps
    ex, i use a cap its not a comfort cap, and the ridges on the side or bold and spaced apart, unlike any kind its got a big oragis red center thats sticks out just a bit
    i think they are called rusto fat type Bs or type As 9they are not the usual rustos)
    but where i come from alot of cats just call them ..quick fillers

    hmm maybe if i feel bored tonight ill do it who knows

    montana !

    montana is a fine paint to use

    althogh its hight pressure makes it a little harder for skinny and deatale lines than it is with belton

    then again that can be sorted out with by turning it upside doun and letting the pressure out
