They just had the one I posted. My homie gripped a few different brands that looked as old and older. I'll flick and post them when I can.

 

Slightly off topic... What's the hype with Red Devil? I know this spot that has mad Red-Devil but when I tried to use it, it was garbage. I shook them mad long and all but they still suck. Did they dip on their quality at some point?

If you want to paint with yellow, You've got a few options.

1. Rustoleum makes a couple of nice, thick yellows, but without a lot of variety.

2. Spring for some euro paint.

3. Start digging for some old Borden Krylon. Half the old shit I dig up is for painting with- pastel yellow and chrome yellow are two of my favorites. They used to be able to make paint way thicker and brighter, so a lot of old Bordens cover like rustoleum.

I still have chrome and pastel yellow bordens in my basement. I dont recall them covering like rusto at all. Yeah, maybe better than maize, or any of those new horrible yellows they have, but rusto? no sir. I've used a few old yellows and none of them are really -good-. Old Derusto Epoxy Canary Yellow, Duplicolor yellow-orange or bright yellow(i think that was what it was called....), Rusto lemon yellow, etc. etc. etc., all arent that good at all. I'm assuming it has mostly to do with lead and the ochre/pigment that yellow needs to be nice and thick. But I probably have really high standards of -good-, If it doesnt outline nice and opaque in one coat, its eh.

I'm not sure what ulovetohateme wants to use yellow for, if its bombing, pretty much any rusto yellow is going to get the job done - Stops Rust! Sunburst yellow, AA Summer Squash, Buttercup, Maple Sugar, or PT Sun Yellow. If you're using those colors to fill a piece with, you're looking at doing a couple coats to make sure its solid. If you're trying to get a nice clean outline on a piece, its pretty much euro-yellows, although a lot of those arent the greatest either(Montana light yellow for instance, could be thicker in my opinion.) I think it also depends on the shade of yellow, a pure yellow is probably going to be thinner than something thats a pukier/greener shade, or a more pastel shade.

I was wondering if some one with any knowledge about rustoleum can help me. I was wondering what my cans may be worth. I have a Dunes Tan from 1967 it appears. It is full and in great shape. Today I picked up 2 cans or Almond Rusto they are full and it decent shape. I also have leather brown all of those appear to be from the late 80's. Anyone know what each can might be worth? thanks for your help
