    The classic shoe polish bottle, wrap it in duct tape, pop the top off, add your special paint mix, cap her up, go out, squeeze her against the wall, and make a drippy mess!

    super easy, super drippy mop. just take a bingo dauber, take off the job and fish out the regulator, dump out the ink it comes with, fill it in with some of your own, and put the nib back on. take it with me every time i bomb and it’s better than some of the commercially made mops i’ve seen

    I was shopping on one evening. Do you know Montana? Many graffiters in Finland like to use Montana markers and cans.

    The threads are reversed, so lefty tightly righty loosy. I like to use a good pair of pliers to get the cap loose, and if you want to refill it with anything other than more whiteout, you can clean it out with WD-40. Add dyes to change the color of the whiteout, and get BIG UPS!!

    I picked up one too, at a welding supply shop. They are made for marking metal, so that says something. They also smell like shit, so I'm sure there's a strong solvent in it too. The nib seems a hair too small, which runs the risk of it coming out mid write...

    I got a bunch of those Forney markers. Easy to rack. They hold up long. Smell bad, but it's cause they are oil based. But only good for quick tags.

    I currently go with the basics. I got black, white and chrome. I grabbed a red one recently but it's kind of whack. The black is best and hits on anything. And I haven't noticed if they fade. I still got a few up that have got almost a year on them. The chrome is alright. The white doesn't hold up at all. But they are easy to rack and easy to stash or toss. I get mine at a hardware store where they are kept in a box and sold as singles, no packaging.

    Acrylic paint pens. I'm going to try them out on the next piece. See what happens. Not like it will matter a lot with my garbage pieces, but it may improve it a bit.

    I made some good ole pen ink with rubbing alcohol abt a week ago. I transferred it into a glue bottle for easy refills, but it doesn't seem to stain that well. I got it on my hands and it washed off with cold water. Is it too late to add brake fluid or other staining agents? Or can it still be messed with and mixed?

    Another question: Why did my Krink mop paint separate? I got a silver K-60 and a gold K-60, and only the gold one has separated. The gold coloring sinks to the bottom, and then the green solvent stuff or whatever just goes to the top. When I get it to mix back together, it separates again after like 5 mins. Also when I write wth it, the paint doesn't flow. I have to squeeze really hard, and even then it makes the streakiest of tags. Is it just the gold one? Has anyone else had any similar experiences with the gold K-60?


    Edit: I emptied and cleaned out the gold one and put my homemade ink in it. Works fine. Must've been the paint. It was veeerrry thick, even though I didn't mess with it at all.

    I see you got a Gold K-60. I got a Gold K-60 and the paint got all separated and wouldn't mix back together. I refilled it with some homemade ink after cleaning it out. It left the streakiest tags.

    You just gotta shake the shit out of it. I had a similar problem today while sitting in traffic with a crass truck-driver. Got out to bust his shit and took a lot of dick-wiggling to get the K to destroy his rig. Patience and practice is a virtue.
