    Or wait for the paint to dry so it doesn't drip

    take a bit piece of cardboard or wood, and just go to town. find the right distance and speed to do a horizontal line without dripping and you should be set. also try mixing up tips. it doesnt even have to look like anything, just random lines. different colors flow differently, especially the hardware store stuff, so just try that shit out.

    just get a can and go find a deserted street and practice there! you can just do lines. try to figure out what distance/tip works best for you :)

    It's not always down to experience or practice either. It's also about how you feel and act. You need to be smooth and relaxed, not think about it so much but just do what feels natural and groovy. If nothing else helps, take a shot of whiskey or smoke half a joint to take the edge off. All in all, if you're stiff and nervous, you'll just end up messing around with something wack

    You also get drips if your can pressure is too high and hold the can too close to the wall. You can get less drips and hold the can closer if you get a low pressure can.

    What kind of paint are you using and is it cold by you? the colder paint gets, the thinner it the winter, all you can do is go real easy on what you're covering...if the paint is cold, and if the surface is cold, you'll probably def. drip.

    if you're using a male valve can, you're fucked.

    if you're using a female valve can..hold it upside down and let out pressure. there really isn't a specific ammount you need to let out, but what i letting about 20 seconds of pressure out at a time, ad then shaking it a bit, and doing a can tell as you get lower on pressure. when you get to a point where you feel comfortable with the consistency of the paint...remember about how much you let out and always do that.

    keep in mind that you really don't want low pressure when you're doing your fill..and if its cold by your can gets colder...after you let pressure out..the can will lower in pressure even more due to the temp.

    if it's due to the temp. put your cans on the floor of your car as you're driving to a place, and blast the heat. If you're 12 years old and hiding graffiti supplies from your parents, wait till they're gone...fill up the bathtub with the hottest water the faucet can provide and throw your cans in there for an hour or so. If you're using significantly less paint than a bath tub..(which you probably are) the same thing in a bucket of hot water or the sink.

    if none of the above just have to make sure you're going fast enough. if your lines are're going too slow for how much you're applying.

    end of story

    I use painters touch and i was wondering what type of caps i should use for the skinny and fat caps, do i need an adapter to use certain caps? when making my lines some times they are to big to control in smaller spaces so it makes it harder.

    To me, ******** female fatcaps are easier to control on Rusto than NYC fats and rusto fats. Maybe its just the can, because I use American Accents for female fats, and Rusto Hammered for NYC fat and it's male stem.

    Just whenever you get the chance to use a can. don't hesitate, The more you paint, the more your muscles will get used to the fact your using a can, the more you paint, the better. Just keep at it.
