Old Cans Of Paint, Serious Collectors

Recommended Posts

Yes that is my stock, and as far as finding shit in those stores, I found little to nothing. But they are great looking spots. Doing alot of digging you really begin to appreciate old hardware and paint stores, they are a rarity and a find in themselves.

dont front, that stuff is hycote, the only cheap, easily available and decent paint we had in the u.k. for most of the 90's.

ever mess with Finnegan's Smoothrite? i heard about it being a great UK paint.

 

they changed the formula in the early 90's around the time i was getting into graff, the newer stuff was ok but not a patch on the original from what i hear. ive been serching for it but we dont seem to have an abundance of 'ma and pa's' for paint digging.

Coral was in and out with thte barcode line of krylon. Only made by borden in its last few years. That would make it late 80's to about the beginning of 91, when sherman williams took over.

why you hating on krylon is a better question.

 

i like 'em better cause they don't try to play like they're "down with graffiti" and make "paint for artists". i'd use when i'm in europe but i won't buy into the hype. fuckin rusto, krylon and plasti-kote have been plenty good to me.

I assume its a pits. can where the cap and labels are same color. I dont know much about them, have only seen them a handful of times. I assume them to be around mid late 70's. As far as metal flake, that is a type of paint, so I dont know what you are talking about. Pictures are always the best way to get info out of us.

Wisconsin. Greenbay did not have shit, and neither did fucking milwaukee, and alot of places in between. Did get a ton of lime greens there though. Plus they tore down the fucking gobbler. I'll never go back there if I can help it.
