Graffiti Saved My Life

Recommended Posts

The first two are really dope.

The CD case one reminds me of the old VHS tape + sock combo.

Not really into those valve paint markers. The only real markers I like are Pilots, Uni PX-30, and the Krink broadlines.

nothing like seeing your shit go by at a crossing....coming back from church and laughed and my parents knew what was up...she hates graffiti so much she looks the other way when she gets stopped by a train and it kills her having to go downtown.

RITE....old partner, dude must have about 800 or 900 frieghts...a couple nights i took him out to hit the street cuz he was the only one to get down with me, hitting the fronts of heavens...poor guy, we went like 3 nights and he got popped and i believe he ratted me out...i forgive him though, one must pay his dues before checking out.

oh, my sister went to el paso till thursday and my dad and i tried to set the scanner up but were retarted with computers and gave up cursing...i promise i will contribute many pictures once she gets back...new york, denver, houston in the mix.

He ratted? And he was your partner?

Can't really condone that.

I went out last night. Hit this footpath bridge that crosses over a highway. I'm hanging on to a railing with my feet on the ledge no wider than 8" 25 feet above the highway. It was pitch black, and the cap I was using sucked. Leaked everywhere. First time I ever used an orange dot on Rusto. Usually just use Rusto fats. Anyway, I haven't gone back to look at it, but I don't even want to cause I'm sure it sucks. I'll probably have to go over myself just so I don't look like a toy.

I don't have any pictures to contribute, but i'd love to see some more cake 87 shit, I always love spotting his stuff when I'm up in SF (which is not too often).

*edit: that whole "sketchy spot in pitch darkness" thing eastcoast is talking about blooows. I hate doing a fill in and coming back a couple days later and seeing I couldn't even color in the lines... gaaah!

The new Krink squeezer mops are a lot better than the old shoe polish Krink mops. The nib is more durable than the old rubber foam nib, but they're kind of expenive. $10 for 2 oz. is steep.

I get these (which are the same as the Krink squeezers) and fill them with a 1-shot + thinner concoction.

That's a good alternative. Might as well buy these things and a jar of Krink for refills.

Krink isn't just thinned out Rusto. You can make ghetto Krink by diluting Rusto or 1-Shot, but it definitely isn't the same.

And I'm pretty sure VS doesn't read this thread. They're more into the superdenim forum.

I mean its one thing to talk about writing, but making a post like this-

"Last night I did a big hallow black throwup on a clean white wall which belonged to a nike outlet/CVS. Noone saw me, it was alright, no big deal.

Today I was walking to said CVS to pick up some stuff, the wall has already been buffed- kind of expected... but on the wall, is a blurry picture of me from a surveillance camera doing the said throwup. Seeing this I still go into CVS and buy 2 tubes of lip balm, GQ, and a bottle of witch hazel... noone said anything. Should I be worried? Has anyone gotten in trouble from cameras?"

is just asking for it. I know kids who have gotten busted for info shared over forums that werent ones like 12oz where you know the police monitor.

$20 for a bottle of paint... its not even really ink... is just rediculous and not in the spirit of graff. If you want to drop $10 on mops, $20 on ink and $6 a can go ahead, but I cant think of one legit writer who does that, only hipster (hate to use that word) "street artists." Not that "street art" cant be awesome as shit, but IMO its not graffiti.

On a postive note, the best ink ive ever used is garvet xt-70 in violet or black + leather dye + a little brake fluid. If you want to add some shine/metallicness pick up some "pearl ex" metallic pigments and put a little of that in your ink. Stuff dyes so hard and the brake fuild with leave mad ghosts, especially when you use it ontop of soemthing painted. Only problem is that its nearly impossible to get off your hands, plus its probably not healthy at all.

And as for people snitching on themselves, i imagine those that do have little to worry about if you get what I'm saying.

Don't stress yourself out too much.

I agree with you that buying supplies like ink, paint, etc. may not be in the spirit of graffiti, but to say that Krink is thinned out Rusto is wrong. I've used both (Krink and thinned Rusto) and they're different. Krink flows better, shines harder, and has a 3D quality to it when dried that makes it pop off the surface.

Garvey XT-70 is definitely dope, but it fades in sunlight because it's alcohol based. It's perfect for insides though. It's pretty much unbuffable. I tried to add violet XT-70 to white Marsh T-Grade to make an ink that stains hard and doesn't fade in the sun, but the Garvey just faded and only the white marsh remained.

As far as all-purpose inks go, I think Marsh T-Grade is one of the best. It can be buffed, but not easily, and it doesn't fade in the sun. Although lately I've just been using thinned out 1-shot. Do 'em Dirty is really dope too. Shaun RFC's mops with the mohair nibs are super smooth.
