best old krylon colors

Recommended Posts

Popsicle orange suprisingly is still made, under the new osha saftey colors. Thae cans with the hard hat and shit on them. If your can is made by sherman williams, it is 91 or newer. If it is borden it is older than that. Get a picture on the old cans thread, or email it to me, and I can tell you more about it.

Oh and I am looking for your cans of baby blue, hot pink, avocado. I got other discontinued cans to trade for it. Also looking for older paper label cans, or cans with the color names on them. I have plenty of other colors to trade for them, trading 2-3 of my cans for 1 of your cans.

Well, i wan't around that much in the graff scene do to

the fact that i didn't start a writing career until 1997.

And yeah, i heard some stupid shit like that....Krylon going out

of business, or some bullshit like that.

Now a days i buy the new school shit with the 3D 5 balls on the

front of the can. But recently i have been getting connections

to discount prices on old school Krylons cans with tyhe old logo on

them. The two colors i've tried though have been Old Catapiller Yellow

and Terracotta. Overall, i recommend the Terracotta to all

graff artist/bombers/piecers. Very good coverage and the quality of

the color is superb.

Borden took the brand in 65 and made it the classic it is. Only recently are they actually going back to the roots of their color lineup (yes, that's actually what Krylon told me). and no, the company that most people equate with the word 'spray paint' is NOT going anywhere. the reason why old guys honor krylon so much is that it was THE paint for a long time- you used to be able to do anything with it. i still get the glazed-over look from newer writers when they say, "i don't use Krylon for outlines, you can do that??" but some classics are:

 

Hot Pink (color and thickness)

Slate Blue (great stuff)

Teal Blue (thick like you never heard)

Baby Blue (i still am in shock that it got disconned in 96)

Pastel Aqua (can you possibly lose with this?)

Clover Green/Safety Green (bright and thick)

Ultraflat Black (it was amazing for years, and cinnamon was all you smelt while it covered EVERYTHING.. look for old cans, even 91-99 sherwins)

Jungle Green (aka the hype machine)

Topaz Yellow (thick, muddy yellow)

Avocado (the boldest and one of the darkest avos)

True Blue (i mean the old stuff, shit was THICK!)

Plum/Safety Purple(if you ever get the chance to use a barcode..)

Aqua Turquoise

there's plenty more

 

oh, and Sherwin Pacific Blue- that shit is insane.

spanish brown

terracotta

aqua turquoise

pastel aqua

jungle

chippewa

brick

bonfire

baby blue

pastel yellow

hot raspberry

mint green

light beige

hot pink

 

all borden rust magics in general!

 

and then rusto:

festival green

autumn gold

classic color aa's

indian spice

 

^^classic borden labels that i remember that were actually good:

 

-spanish brown

-chippewa

-aqua tirquise

-clover green (this was probably krylons best color ever-i have an old can and it still kicks)

-icy grape - i never saw it in a store but an older writer gave me a quarter can once. i held onto it for years cause i knew it was vintage and by the time i was going to use it it didnt work. now a days i use the paint and save the can.

 

 

colors on that list i remember sucking.

 

pastel yellow sucked

jungle green sucked (thats right i said it.)

pastel aqua sucked

plumb purple sucked

 

baby blue and hot pink were so so.

 

i never heard of mint green and hot rapsberry, not saying they dont exist. terracotta was a dope color. pretty thick too

 

i remember having cascade green, fed saftey purp (rusto) and sandelwood tan along with some old red devils and using them on a wack ass handball court

 

neo-classic paint:

but yes festival is probably

rustos dopest color next to harbor.

 

almost all the aa's are good except for that fucking yellow (summersquash i think)

and in fact none of those shits are discontinued.

stores just dont stock them like they used to.

you can call the company and order it.

Zed, some of the american accents are no longer made. Some colors came and went from that line in a matter of a year or two. Some of these colors are Indian Spice, Autumn Gold, Java Brown, Silver. All done away with. I think it was the whole Classic line that is gone now. Joe will correct me if I am wrong.

 

As far as krylon goes, their was a color called mint green, super rare to the point no one believed it existed till it appeared late last year in an amazing store find. Hot Raspberry is super rare, and you rarely see it, along with Pineapple Yellow. Then you have colors that only one or two cans still exist of, Pennant Blue, Peacock Blue. Super old colors pre Borden like Nile Green, Fire Red, Hyacinth Blue, and so on.

 

As far as rusto goes, most of their old colors were just renamed, and still pretty easy to use, if not still made. Sandalwood discontinued in 73, but reintroduced in the woodsaver line. A cheap way to use a classic color. Cascade Green and Coral Pink were two hot colors no longer made. And dont forget the Speedy Dry line with Lime, Lavender Blue (Probably the freshest color ever) and Spring Green. And rusto Avocado, boy that shit is nice.

thanks for kicking that knowledge style.

seems you should work at a paint company or manage the paint dept at home depot or something. it was a home depot worker that told me that aa's were not doscont. and that home depot just dosent order it anymore.

a lot of those kry and rusto colors i have never heard of, much less seen.

im not much of a collector, i got a couple of vintage cans but not like some people who are avid collectors. i vaugely remember seeing the speedy dry cans whan i was coming up. but i dont remember any colors.

I like Krylons black to Painters touch black, but I don't really like krylon that much. I got some wierd blue color one time, and I liked it. That's about it.
