You cant refill a mean streak.

Ahhhhh....I know how...it's easy, and cheap if you can find the

"refills", but it is easier to replace them 95% of the time.

 

As far as doing the chemistry yourself, here's a big clue- the idea of a streak is to stabilize paint to work in a range of enviroments. So, the idea is that you have to lowering its viscosity, and then add chemicals to facilitate its use under any conditions. The main additive I know of in streaks is glycol, AKA antifreeze, which gives streakers that sweet smell. Glycol is also an ingredient in brake fluid, coincindentally. I don't really want to go into how to thicken paint here, seeing as how most people won't bother, but there are books about it out there.

 

Guess all that time I hung out at the paint store paid off...

Cant you just put in some paint and thinner when it runs out?

Nope...you're on the wrong track. You THICKEN the paint to solid form, then add it. Liquid paint would be a mess.

okay here goes, i made a huge marker out of plastic parts from my local hardware store, the tubes are 3 inches (7,5 cm) so the tip is has the same width, i only like markers with round tip, they dont sell them so i made my own. There is some foam from an old couch and an old sock in it as the tip, it takes about 200ml of ink for the foam to get all soaked and the reservoir can hold about 300ml of ink. I can take off the top part of the marker if i need to refill, its sealed by a rubberring so no ink can leak out. It doesnot have a pumpsystem because it really doesnot need it, the foam has a lot of ink in it so when you put a little pressure on it, drips will be the result. I use it mainly to tag on trains with some ink (a mix of grog, corio, marsh, gv etc.) and they cant or hardly buff it :D

 

the marker,

Exactly. I still want one of those huge Tagline pens, but they sell out before I can order one.

The marsh brush is pretty wild, too.

your welcome, they have the tubes in 4 inch or 10 cm also, but thats a bit too much, its pretty difficult to handle and it just uses way too much ink, the 3inch is pretty expensive to tag with allready, so i made a smaller one 2inch also

i hit the train at the station, the drips that go straight down are from when i ve just put them on and the other ones are from when the train drives away at highspeed, the marker delivers A LOT of ink so it will drip for a while

You wouldn't get enough to make a dent in another marker, believe me. What's up with Pilot ink going for $5 and up a bottle???? That's what I want to know. It's not like they don't make it anymore- I can still find it for two bucks and change...I think graff stores are ripping us off by inflating the price, and citing "limited availability". That's bullshit, since I can walk to the stationery shop by my house, and order it for less than what it cost me in 1990, if you adjust for inflation. Again, what's really going on?
