almost all generic brands of spray paint priced at $1 only have 1/3 of the square footage coverage for the "regular cans" priced closer to $3.
sure it may be slightly cheaper, but you'll end up buying more cans to get the same coverage results from a normal can of rusto or krylon. not to mention you might have to go over the same area multiple times to get the color to look uniform. whether you're just practicing or going out bombing, why carry cans that you'll have to use more of, that will end up empty and rattling around in your bag?
i know there's probably someone bound and determined to argue with me on this, and i know there are SOME EXCEPTIONS. what i'm going off of is personal experience and information from the companies themselves. if you want, put it to the test with various paints. do some research yourself and you might get lucky and find a $1 can that is somewhat worthwhile. great job. on occasion it can be good.
oh yea, and another thing for people starting out. get comfortable with a can of rusto or krylon and when/if you start using great paint like montana and belton you're pieces will look really great. resist the temptation to think that you'll go from a toy to a master from just using expensive paint. you'll just look like a toy who is using nice paint.
many props to AP.
hope that this helps. peace.

It doesn't matter how expensive the paint is. As long as it covers then it's just as good as the next.
now this is a perspective you gotta admire!
that would be kind of sad. I mean its nice to paint with brands like that, but I presonally like to put any kind of paint to good use.OUCHeR! wrote:ok ok i have to ask how many people here think that you can only paint with MTN/Belton......?
theres a store by my house where you can get "sh*t paint" for MORE THAN MY ALOWANCE ,and its hella easy to rackGrover wrote:Absolutely right, $1 cans are rubbish.
However, I would say get used to ANY can. If you really bomb then you're gonna go on a grand tour of every can that exists, so may as well know $1 cans too. Who knows when someone is gonna hand you one.
