  1. what are the cans on the top shelf in that Kmart flick? do they have a German flag on them???
  2. devils is one thing, but big face cascades ain't dropping from trees!! bien hecho!
  3. pink was big in the 50s and 60s... mostly soft baby pinks, pastels (until '69 anyway) these were all approximately the same shade: - Shell Pink (Derusto) - Coral Pink (Rust-oleum) - Baby Pink (Krylon) - Pink (Red Devil) - Carnation Pink (yikes, forgot who made that) - Valencia Pink (ditto) nice scores
  4. there are many colors from the 1991 initial American Accents line that were discontinued, such as the Classic colors and the silver and gold. Java Brown is one that doesn't pop up much, and some of the early gloss colors are obscure--- it's hard to find their gloss Black in 1991 cans. Indian Spice, Autumn Gold, Maple Sugar, Leafy Green, and others are all classics from the early years, often remembered for their very high quality.
  5. Jib, I think you're confusing Adobe the Rusto color with Krylon. I forget what the closest match in Krylon is to Adobe... not Chippewa, Brick?
  6. well put Valdi. and you'll remember that those leaded/non-leaded yellow pencils wrote just as thick and solid as other yellow pencils. we're doing good work here!!
  7. Not true. Yellow does not need lead to be thick, lead only adds brilliance and permanence. There are thick yellows by all the Euro brands and they are not leaded. I have used yellows with lead that are runny and not thick. Again, you have to be careful what you assume-- once again, WE MUST NOT glamorize lead, especially when one of our children here has elevated lead levels. Yellows, reds, greens, and way way before spray paint, white all had lead at one point.
  8. lead can contaminate a person in various ways. certainly an airborne propelled paint will be an excellent way to do it, but slyle is right, most spray paint doesn't have it. there were all kinds of organic solvents (not the good organic like Whole Foods organic either) in old paint, and if you're just grabbing whatever paint you can find in the early 80s and 70s, then it's possible you had some paint with lead in it. the US Consumer Product Safety Commission banned lead in all consumer products in 1978, but most of the spray paint industry was lead free before that. Rust-oleum was a bit late (
  9. and what's more, I would totally rock a modacrylic hairpiece!
  10. i understand your frustration but i really believe it's not worth being mad about. i hate to constantly be a nag about this, but Ebay is a really really lousy platform for sellers at this point. you're basically giving AT LEAST 20% of your sale price on an item to Ebay and Paypal, for many people it's more than that. they charge you for your shipping prices. for a lot of people, the effort and time and money spent is not worth it to sell something under 10 dollars. sometimes you're making all of $2 profit and as much as i want to propel and nourish the hobby, i can't do it for love alone-- cer
  11. i have pink, yellow, and orange Kalifornias, Borden paper labels, if anyone needs them.
  12. yunno, i was just thinking that one thing we don't see much in paint collecting is some good homoeroticism... but that was before I saw that Sailor Blue. i have some Citrus Yellow for sale, full cans, hit me up if anyone's interested. don't think i have any spare overcaps though.
  13. and it wasn't unusual for various companies to make spatter paint. think of roofing tar/undercoater and a bit of paint sprayed out at the same time (not blended). have never used the stuff, though it'd be fun most likely. probably hard to control.
  14. Thanks HAL... them fancy taggers are the bane of the world at this point!
  15. crazy unused Navy Blue Satins, with some heavy crimps/dents that seem unexplained the elusive Citrus Yellow. just feeling that nice overflowed yellow finish is exciting to a classic Krylon fan
  16. True Blue satin? Nice one. Those Ollie's decals bring back memories...... Nice Valdi.
  17. it should also be noted that everyone collects a bit differently. some people want a certain year, some people don't collect clears, some people don't even collect the same brand, and some people just want interesting color names. if it's out of production, it's probably "old enough" for someone.
  18. I need to check them to make sure, but IIRC 1996 was the 3D-Ball logo, 1998 the box logo for Krylon... 1991 & 1994 cans are flatballs. We used to think that the 90s cans weren't all that, but the 1998 boxlogos didn't last long. If you find them now you should grab them. People collect a certain style like flatball and it actually takes quite a bit of work to get the entire range; with a style like boxlogo, it'd be even harder if it only lasted like 2 years.
  19. nice scores, the 1991 Krylon flatballs are getting hard to find at this point, especially new and unused. vintage might seem like a fixed term, but in this field it doesn't take long. lots of spray paint doesn't have a shelf-life of 20 years, and the stuff is made to be thrown away. if you're a store owner (they had those before bLowes and Home Depot) and customers bring paint back saying it doesn't work, how long are you gonna keep it. and then if you do something drastic like the two big brands changing over valves, a lot of the older stuff is instantly in higher demand. Rust-oleum and
  20. nice work there OG some 90s Krylons in unusual colors up on Ebay now, rare satins. if you need to work on your flatball collections, check em out.
  21. funny that you call them "baby armns" when they came first and are much older cars.
