everytime i outline over my wet fill i get drips any tips
fill must be too thick and not dry enough for the outline.
let the fill dry then outline.
the grey with black dots, not sure the proper name, seem to work
pretty good on the other rusto brands, painters touch
what do i go when i have no tme to wait for the fill
go and comeback?
either your using one gloss paint and one flat, that would make them drip becaue
they are two diffrent paints they dont tend to mix very well.
or you are laying down way too much for a outline and making it drip no matter
how fast you move.
or you have way too much in your fill and its taking forever to dry.
post a picture of the poblem
for ur fill just do the thinnest layer possible w/ a orange dot and do a fast outline w/ a german outline. if ur using rusto drips really shouldn't be a problem unless ur really close or moving really really slow. when i say "fast" i mean move the can quickly when making a stroke, but dont rush the outline or it will come out sloppy. Also if possible watch some graff movies like (Graffiti instincts) to see what we're talking about. It helped me a lot when i was having a hard time.
LOL. WHY MAKE THIS POST. LIKE.. AT ALL JUST DO STRAIGHT LINES. WALK ALONG WITH IT.
TAKE A HAIRDRYER,
im going against you all. its not intentional. h34r:
an orange dot is practically a german fat,
o and i got the kitchen window and put a thin piece of wood up on it....i practiced days on end till i knew how to do straight lines, carful of overspray though...but thats wat ur learning on not wat to do....
use masking tape if you want really neat lines. lol. every burner does it. even cantwo
put the can close to the wall
and apply ninja skills
just whip your handy tripod out, stick the can on to it and gently pull the lever in the chosen direction.

use the finger to the right of your spray finger to "trace" the outside of the fill you are trying to outline. like if its your pointer finger use your middle finger to trace the edge of the fill. works for me anyways
im a toy, but my lines are very straight, i find its easier if you dont think about painting the picture, just think about painting. you'll do much better if you just let the art flow through your can and not think about it.
Move your body more than your arm. your arm moves in more of an arch. go watch videos of cameramen doing freehand work. they move like ninjas!
umm come again ?
Use your middle finger as a guide, Phat 2. I think he means like, when you're holding the can in your hand with your pointer finger on the valve (this is how most would hold it, I understand some use the thumb or middle finger) use your middle finger and extend it out and let it run along the wall, following the line you need to paint. This can be a big help. Wear some gloves if you're working with wet paint.
Heklr thats exactly what i meant, a older head i met in the city told me about this. i tried it recently and it works like a charm. im sure most of the pros dont need this but for people who are just gettin into this it works really well. I dont exactly touch the wall but that middle finger is almost touching and it will give u crisp outlines if u can keep your can moving steadily
its very simple....do a practice stroke...you know...not pressing on the cap...then right after you do the first practice stroke, go right back and do it again but press down your finger this time. see what im sayin? if you do them both quickly, you're most likely to do the EXACT same stroke. i hope this makes sense
