Recommended Posts

im sick of buying shitty colors that dripp like mad or have crazy overspray or the lines are totally transparent or blochy...... so i thought everyone could list brands / colors of paint they knew were shitty. also, brands / colors that wont work over eachother. some paint just wont coat over other paint. some premium decor wont go over krylon and vice versa.

 

 

heres a few

1. belton: white - dripps like crazy (at least for me today)

2. kyrlon gloss: cherry red, royal blue, sun yellow, pumpkin orange? white, black.

3. premium decor: powder white (dope color)- overspray

yeah,sun yellow is useless and it took a full can of pumpkin orange for one letter that really wasn't all that huge..last time I ever used it.-Violet also sucks.....don't know about Belton-never used it before.I have had good luck with Red Devil lately.

all colors will work under the right circumstances. that popsicle orange will work like a champion over a yellow/orange/red background. violet over a baby blue background...etc etc. if you plan ahead a little bit youd be surprised what you can do with shitty paint. dont rule them out, use them in the right situations.

 

on a semi related note, be careful of grape satin krylon. it will tint lighter colors sprayed over it. your white cuts just might turn out to be pink.

Would everyone on this thread (except beardo who has the knowhow and patience to do otherwise) please switch to Rustoleum products. All complaints about watery, thin, not cutting, etc. will magically vanish. (And be replaced by "what's with that stutter when you first depress the cap".)

I certainly like Hobby Lobby's selection of Krylon.

walmart wont have bleton because its a german brand of paint that is usually only found in america in stores specifically for writers (at least in my experiences). i dont know if its the cold or ive been using the wrong belton colors but they all seem a little watery to me. theres dope colors tho. as far as cracked ass's comment... that would greatly reduce the selection of colors available. ive never used a rusto that was watery or had much overspray but ive never found it great for outlines or shells. i usually stick to fills with rusto. it covers good. montana is dope. solid, thin, lies, dope color selection.... i have had some drips but i again i dotn know if its from the cold or what...

pt or rustoleums ....are good paint but theres not much of a color selection and trust me with montanas u dont have that problem over 89 colors and the gloss black it looks like a mirror when ur done with it trust me its an all good paint regardless of the prices.. im sure u guys pay arond five bones for some of those canz ... u guys are hating ... cause i seen the mom and pops stores they tax fo sure...invest a bit in montanas and all ur problems will go away... and u might still be able to use pt once in a while for a fill or for bombin... and yes those beltonz are watery there practicly made for detailing they do have a wide selesction of colors too.... but there basicly made for canvases and more of detailing with the tips are supper thin and the paint is actually thinner... the impression i got fom montana was like i was using the old skool can of krylon and red devil cause its thick and it dryes in minutes and it wont lose the pigment in the sun... they work great in all the weathers too...

when they were still in the northeast (are they anywhere now?), Pergament used to sell a brand called Rollakote. 99 cent jammies in two tone blue cans..black and white only. no matter what you did, how you handled it, or who you prayed to, it would drip no matter what. amazing really.

 

uhh, i'm starting to wonder how i got over with krylon for years now that metal is the medium of choice... oh yeah, krylon was actually less watery once. try to get epoxies and polyurethanes.

rusto is darn good paint, the only problem is the only caps I've been able to use on these rusto cans are german outlines and rusto fats. montana stocks work too. does anyone else have problams with caps not working on rusto ? I tried a german jumbo and almost cried, it ran all over my new kicks....
