they tried to get us to carry that german montana line. and out of 100 cans they sent us to try. 10 of them failed... thats a bad percentage considering the hundreds of thousands of molotow cans we push without failures...
Damn...Any other kinds of paint that didn't work very well?
well now that were on it..... I have tried Sabotaz,Ironlak,Monster and Clash.
Sabotaz:::Smells like Kerosene..I kind of like that.. For piecing this paint handles well. Valve feels amazing. pressure is a little low. goes on as opaque as Molotow. The Signal Orange I tried was one of the best oranges Ive used. The one drawback for me was that it doesn't do well with other brands of paint and can buckle and crack on latex. That is usually a sign of low quality paint. I had a friend in Germany wipe it off a wall with his hand. That needs to be addressed. I wouldn't use this for Bombing. or murals that are potentially exposed to the elements. But It handled so well and covered so good that if I was doing interiors I might use it for some very specific colors.
Ironlak:::It kind reminded me of Rusto but with a somewhat European style valve. It covered almost as good as Molotow. the cans felt good in the hand the finish was glossy. This paint painted well but felt a bit unrefined in use when compared to the Molotow or Sabotaz. I think is also due to its tendency to eat colors. like rusto you have to wait for it to set somtimes before you apply another layer or it might pool up. But its a good paint that seems to be pretty durable on the wall. Definitely a plus over the Sabotaz. I wouldnt use it for piecing as much if Its the same price as Molotow I would definitely use this on freights with Molotow or Hardcore. Good stuff!
Monster & Clash:: Ill just lump these together. They both handled really well. the paint opacity and characteristic's were similar to Montana Hardcore. the valve was more refined than the Hardcore one though. great color pallete..This paint claims to be all weather.. But I have a very high standard for that these days.. I tested it with Hardcore & Molotow. This was last December and it was in the mid 30's the clash/monster handled better than domestics but was more akin to the Montana (thats probably due to the synthetic laquers) than the Molotow as far "all weather" is concerned. Wich means it was affected a bit by the cold when the Molotow just Kept pumpin' it out without mercy. But I Like this paint line And would like to see more of it.
