Spraypaint in Japan

Spraypaint in Japan


In Japanistan domestic spraypaint cans are male and the nozzles are female. Snot good fyour rucksack. For all intense purposes there are two kinds of domestic paint you can find readily:

  1. Mini Blamo ¥100 cans from Daiso and other 100 yen shops. (100ml)
  2. Hardware store paint is from ¥200-800 a pop. (300ml)

If you want yer fancy schmancy Montana cans, nozzles and other import nicknacks then go to the Montana Shop & Gallery TOKYO
The hardware store paint quality is pretty good as cheap paint goes. It’s a bit like UK Carplan paint – the yellows and oranges are going to be sparse and the blues and blacks going to come out thick.

Stock caps on the hardware store cans are mental, only proper mentalists like Mr. True try use them (on bare concrete no less). Thankfully the stock caps on ¥100 cans are real good but should you require a bit more precision in your work you can’t go wrong with Drip Homeworks who supply Scotch Caps for every style.

This is from their website:

RED[fat]
最も太く吹き出るオーソドックスなバルブです。
広範囲の塗り作業などに最も適しています。

20110928-171159.jpg
BLUE[skinny]
細く描けます。文字やキャラクターなど、
さまざまな用途に使用します。

20110928-171209.jpg
PINK[smooth fat]
Redよりも細く、塗料の吹き出し量が均等なので、
奇麗なラインを引くには最も適したバルブです。

20110928-171215.jpg
GREEN[flare shade]
主にボカシに使用します。輪郭がかすれて
出るので、キャラクターの影部分や風景、
グラデーションなどの作業に向いています。

20110928-171222.jpg
YELLOW[super skinny]
ブルーよりもさらに細く、ガス圧も低めなので
細かい作業に適しています

20110928-171227.jpg
LIGHT GREEN[slowline smooth fat]
太さはPinkと同じくらいですが、
ガス圧が低いのでゆっくりとラインが描けます。

The prices for these babies start at ¥1000 for 20 of one kind or matey sells them in special variety packs costing ¥2500 for 50. This site also stocks Krink, Sharpies, Markers, Black Books DVD’s and the two best graffiti magazines in Japan Kaze magazine and HS magazine!
