today i made first batch of paint/thinner ever :D..everything went smoothly, except for one thing..i have a question about my paint and where im keeping it...the paint ingredients included xylene, so should i worry about keeping it in a plastic bottle or not? will it eat through, or is it just not something to really worry about? thanks.

so what's the difference in uses for xylene/mineral spirits? different thinners for different bases? i know you use water for latex paint. most paint's probably say what to thin it with on the bucker. aluminum rusto says mineral spirits. homemade krink :-) anyone got a breakdown on what thinners for what kinds of paint?

they do make them, the cap it comes with you cant screw back on, but take a normal cap from a 2 liter bottle, for example, and it will screw back on. also the size below a can, the 10oz glass bottles with regular caps, i've got a grip of them i will flick them and show you.

latex are water based which means you can add water to it. Not really good for outdoor work.

 

xylene is much more agressive than using regular paint thinner. Less dangerous than using benzene. Most paints already include xylene. Some people use other methods because they are too sensitive to it's fumes.

You're better off using clear snapple bottles to see the color you're working with easier. Though i prefer wider mouths like jelly jars

nice container..30 for free? luck you..i plan on puttin my paint/thinner into a mayonaise jar biggrin.gif gahetto.

 

yeah man i went dumpster diving. not familiar? alright i will break it down for you right now. lets say there is a kinko's near you. kinkos works with alot of paper, and im sure they are left with plenty of scraps that they cant be arsed to keep and recycle, so they toss it. now you go behind the building where the trash bins and dumpsters are and rummage through it. you will find some paper that can be used for wheatpastes, stencils, etc. now with the hotel, they distribute the soda's to their customers, after they are done they throw them in the trash, and i went and recieved them. dumpster diving is a good thing.

though i have plenty of clear bottles as well as blues and greens, with my inks i dont care much about color. i just throw my best staining shit together and write with it. when i want a dope color i will use rusto bucket paint. why do you like wide mouth jars better? it makes it more difficult to pour into a small marker. anyway, whatever floats your boat.

im guessing he likes to stir it with a pen or whatever..personally, i just like to throw in a marble and mix it up like that..i like the small mouth jars the best, because without them, i hafta use my tiny ass squeejy thing to collect the ink, and poor it in...it takes forever :(

You'll need a funnel either way. Either to get chemicals into the bottle and out of it. Plus I use ladels, eye droppers and I like to see the color I'm working with right away from the top. Especially when color is important to me as an artist

ok im looking to make some ink or krink or something. everytime i try to make krink it turns out a lil weird i need good instructions about makin it. i dont feel like looking thru all these pages so if anyone wants to give me some new tips or instructions tell me. or if maybe someone wants to get on AIM to talk just ask for my s/n.

 

(and maybe if anyone has suggestions about a marker that works well to use krink or something with tell me bout that also... i dont wants huge mops either or those homemade markers that blow up in your pocket or are all messy i just want a real marker thats not too skinny not too fat that would work well with those inks.)

I use thick wooden popsicle stirs sticks used for coffee or qtips depending what stage of mixing I'm at or if I'm experimenting. I used to use a marble but better left in cans and paint markers as they make too much noise. Plus large batches are better mixed with sticks. But you need to use a funnel. Here's my old funnel. You can see some of the various colors I made in it
