    yea....see the reason that this section of the forum is for tools and tips is to possibly help people instead of talkin shit to them.

    well overspray shouldnt be that bad. Are you using a stock tip {the tip that comes with the can} because they can have more over spray. there is a thing called cutting lines where u spray next to the line to make it look leaner or straighter. Or you can just paint your lines fast wich will reduce over spray

    what kinda paint? just experiment and youll get better. the lines arent gonna be perfectly clean. But if your doing a peice you can cut the lines or overspray.

    Sometimes if the weather is really hot, I notice that rusto will spray almost like a stock when it's got a NY thin on. It's concentrated in the center with a weak little halo around it. It happens with rusto, Painters Touch and american accents. Try using the cap with a can of Krylon. If you're still out of luck, I think someone sold you some beat caps. Try holding the can closer to the wall, too.

    There's some toys around my way that use NY thins, but all their lines are fuzzy, skipping, drippy and terrible. They must store their cans in a freezer, because it always looks like they painted in -80 degree weather. I think they're just not cut out for graffiti. Maybe you're doing what they're doing, and that's the problem.
