temp from ny    Friday February 28, 2014 Asked this Question:
Subject: outlines and shines
Question: Whats happening....this might be stupid but i been writing for a while but the one thing i could never get to look good is drawing blacked out throwups/pieces with a vibrant opaque outline. Ive used decos and montana black acrylics and could never get the lines to stay solid as if i were to hit the wall..on paper it just seems to look so streaky even if i were to go over it again or fill the piece with sharpie or paint itself...i find this more difficult with green or red even white...even doin the outline first and the fill second it still looks off...any pointers?
AP Reply: Are you filling the black with a solvent based marker? If so the then the decos might be reacting to the solvent and pulling it through. if so then you will want to use a water based marker to outline as its more inert. I know you tried it with the water based, Montana Gold marker but it could be the fact that the color you used just did not hide the black as well. Montana did a great job on packaging, but the stuff in the marker isn't any better than a Posca which is mostly expensive shite... You should really look into the Oneforall markers. That is what Montana gold was trying to copy when they made their acrylic line. Molotow uses a proprietary marker and ink blend that no one else can touch. They were designed to work together so you get more consistent ink delivery, cleaner, and smoother lines. Also the paint pigments are more rich in the oneforall. Try that next time!
