yo fellas i need paint help.

so i got this kills oil based bucket paint and i cant get it to flow thru shit.any tips?

 

Like Vader said, since it's oil based, you're going to want to use classic paint thinner. The ratio that I use, and what's most commonly used, is 1/3 thinner and 2/3 paint. But, that'll depend on how drippy/thick you want it to be, etc. Also, it will help your flow better to remove the regulator inside the Kiwi if you haven't already. It's the plastic thing right under the nib that you can see when you take the nib holder out of the actual mop body.

It resists chipping. Sounds like something you could try. I dont think that it's a chrome replacement tho....this is silver.

 

Pretty retarded that someone would want to paint their chainlink fence yet rusto thinks there is a consumer need for this type of paint.

I've seen people buying it, and I've seen people using it. Some people care about the fence's looks and longevity.

Better them than me. I just picture someone using a long nap roller on a chain link fence and it looks like a joke.

You've come across the hard truth... There is no such thing as unbuffable ink. Any ink that you make can be buffed with whatever base your ink consists of... that's just how it works.

 

But, there are other ways to increase the staining ability of your ink. First, you could just add more pens to your mix. Maybe the ratio you're using is too thin. You can tell the thickness of your ink by the color. A light purple is very light. A solid purple is medium. A seemingly black ink with a purplish tint to it is strongest a simple pen ink mix can be.

 

A more elaborate way of making your ink thicker would be to heat it up and add more pens. The ink will dissolve quicker into the ink, and some of the base of your ink will evaporate, making an even thicker and more concentrated ink.

 

A more professional way to increase the staining power of your ink is to do what great ink creators like DED and Oink do. They take stainers like Gentian Violet and Methylene Blue (in the powder forms) and add them to their inks in a fairly elaborate process. They also do a number of other things to their ink that I know nothing about, or else I'd be making ink like theirs and getting rich off of it.

 

 

 

What I suggest you do is buy Pilot ink and add it to your mix. Pilot black is a great, black, cheap ink that stains hard and will make your ink mix a lot better. If you thicken your current mix and add Pilot, you should notice a huge difference. You can pick Pilot ink up at most arts and crafts stores.

Okay...

 

I know alot of things have been said before, and yes, i did read alot of this thread allready, and searched within this thread for help on my "problem". Also, my English sucks ass, it's not my 1st or my 2nd language. However, advice is needed.

 

I have about 50 new toners for printers. I cracked a few open and collected the powder. The best thing i can get my hands on right now to mix it with is nailpolish remover. It does NOT have aceton in it, it consists of ethyl acetate, alcohol and water.

 

someone said " it has to have a copolymer base in the toner". How to figure out if i got the right toner? The box does not say anything about ingredients. All the toners are for canon and HP machines, most of them are originals. I got so many i really want to use it for something.

 

I have been mixing the toner with the nailpolish remover, and it seems to blend very well. However, it's not really dark, like it needs more toner.

 

My question: Could this be because i need some other stuff to mix it with, or because i didn't add enough toner? Or something else? someone in this thread said "also a cartridge of toner should make out about a gallon of ink." I believe a gallon is about 2,5 liters.... i can't make a liter of good ink from 3 toners. I think i'm fucking shit up.

 

Another question:

Any idea what kinda ink this is? I got a few bottles from a friend, and it stains very well.

The only one i am not happy with is the black ink, so i am thinking about putting some toner with it to make it more black. It smells so toxic i am not sure if it's alcohol based. It sure as hell isn't oil based. Any help here?

 

Oh and one more thing.

I have bought all kinds of ink... from corio to krink to grog, mrBlack. I must say this is by far the most black ink i have ever used. I don't know about buffing... but it is black as hell and stay like that in the sun. Thinck, and has good drips. Good one, but shit expensive. like 18euro for 250ml, in the country next to where it's made. You can add alcohol and thin it up 33% without shit getting too dippy, and it's still very black and sun-proof.

Toners are mixed with Polymers. (symilar to PVA and ones in acrylic paint)..

ive had troubles with these in the past. but the pigments are quite decent.

 

Take your toner..

 

take a miture of 1/5 alcohol to 4/5 water..

 

mix it as best as you can.. and microwave.. ionising and heating till all moisture is gone.. repeat this twice.. then there you go. usable.
