Pilot Super Color SILVER

Hola!

Hoy tengo el placer de presentaros un rotulador de los que cuando los tienes en las manos sientes la necesidad de abrir.

Puesto que te supones que no te va a defraudar, conoces la marca e incluso el producto. Pero en formato “Medium”. Pero de repente viajando por alli no encuentras en formato “Jumbo” y piensas, … ¡Este pa’ la cole!

En concreto el viaje era a Milán (barrio de Brera)  i el afortunado no era un servidor. Si no Lucas, un coleccionista que ya colaboró con nosotros anteriormente.

Aprovecho para darle las gracias por las fotos (muy buenas) y por compartir con todos nosotros este tesoro.

Sin más, vamos a ver que tal este pequeño streaptease …

Detalle etiqueta. Imagina tener que etiquetar toooodos los rotuladores que entran a italia…

Ya puestos echo de menos unas estrellitas en el logo psicodélico de Silver.

Wide and broad.

Suaveee.

Tipica foto que a mi abuela seguro que no le diria nada, pero a mi me flipa :)

Gracias a todos por la visita.

Hasta pronto.

Luca’s Edding600 vintage collection

Hola, hace unos días Lucas me mandó un correo con estas fotos.
De momento se más bien poco de estos rotuladores, excepto en que todos son variaciones
de un mismo modelo de la popular marca Alemana Edding.

Espero en breve poder actualizar este post con un poco más de información. Hasta entonces, disfrutad las imágenes!

_______

Hi, long time ago i have receibed some pics from Lucas. At the momen i have not so much information about those markers.
Only that are all from Edding and have the same name: Edding Grafik Art Marker.

I hope in next days update this post with more information, by the way enjoy now the pictures!

During my investigation about Edding i found this very nice pic, the evolution of the Nº1.

Take care!

Posca was the first paintmarker I used on the street and although there
are other paintmarkers around with more colors etc. i still love ‘m
(There’s no “La Ink i did this for my dead cat story” connected to the
tattoo) I made a choice between a Weber BBQ and the Posca marker. I’m a

Collector: Joedigger

Today i’m glad to post a new collector review, Joedigger, who have a very nice Mop collection. Here a few pics and questions, i hope you like it.

DSC09878

Hi, first at all thanks to send these terrific pics, please let us know when you beggin to collect markers? and why?

I began to collect markers as far as i have been writing graffiti! I have always collected everything, from basket-ball cards to Mickey Magazine, and the biggest of them all, my spray paint cans collection, but that’s another story!


Where you come from? It’s hard to found new additions in your town?

I come from Lille, in the North of France, near Belgium, one of the greatest country to dig in.

I’m collecting spray paint cans, and in the places i dig you always find old paint, old mops, old markers, old things, so i take them all. I clean the place.

DSC09875

Where you found Spotty? is nice to see this paint dabber refilled with ink, it works? what about the foam tip? Is solvent resistant?

You can find the Spotties almost everywhere, it’s a child, water-based type of squeezer, the original color and texture of the ink is really cool, and smells good! In fact i’ve known them before the actual, graffiti-specialized squeezers. They’re a little bit too dull but they resist solvents, and they don’t leak.


You have a very nice mop collection, do you have any suggestion about the best brand or tip shape?

The best Mops i have ever found were the Sipratic Mops, which were very used by parisian writers during the 80’s and 90’s. They were so ergonomic, with their two sides mold to place your fingers. It was the first mops i used, i hadn’t had the idea to keep them. I gave the other one to a friend. And like 5 years ago, a stock had been put in place in the shop i used to steal them in, despite the brand had been dead for like 5 years ago! But i don’t know i didn’t stole one…

The regular brands have a great shape, i only use round tips, they make such beautiful tags…Props to Azyle in Paris for his career by the way. He’s the greatest ambassador of french mops!

DSC09888

I like it very much the Baranne and IdeCuir boxes, what they content?

The Baranne only contents a shoe cream, Idecuir contains a little cleaning bottle, and a great mop, with what looks like a home-made tip, with a piece of tissu.

DSC01212


What call your atention of a mop? the label design, the bottle shape, the tip?

The capacity of the mop is primordial, cause mops tags need a lot of ink. After i look closely at the hermiticity of the cap, cause i’ve been fucking up so many jeans..!

In other words, what need a mop to increase your collection?

A mop need to have a little design from back in the days, or a picture of a 70’s lady, with blond hair and bright smile, Farah Fawcett Style!!! RIP!

DSC01214

In your email yoy say that you love Home-made inks, that’s great!
Please do you have any recipe to share with all the readers of this blog?

I keep my mixtures secret like any good chief! But i have simple tactics, and basic ingredients. You only have to know which ink to mix with which pigment. My favorite ingredient is the french fuschia Corio. Corio was, like Flo-master, a so-deep colored ink, when i see tags from back in the days…It’s incredible. Nowadays it’s watered shit. But the fuschia is still good. I have found one day like 10 Waterman’s 1 litre bottles, and i’ve launched the ink directly from the bottle to the wall, well after like 15 layers of spray paint you still saw the green Waterman ink getting over them. My favorite inks are Jet, so black but not hard to buff, Fuschia Corio and some burgundies of my own. You have made the best ink when it makes littles holes, as if she was breathing. Azyle had crazy home-made inks, with those holes in it.

Do you have any anecdote about amateur chemistry?

Yeah, trying to fill a Spotty with spray paint Silver, spraying in the bottle. I don’t know why but silver and gold paint are so cold!!! Try the experience, they are cold when get out of the can, it’s mysterious…Plus i hadn’t think that spray paint will keep some gas in the bottle, and when i opened the fresh silver-filled spotty it pops out like a devil from his box, and, man, it was silver time everywhere in my room! I have fucked up so many clothes, so many tables, so many sneakers trying to make the best ink. I am able to tell every ink and every paint i have on my jeans!

DSC09897


I like it in the last picture, the bottle with the red label seems a liquor, Where you found it? seems very old!

Hum…i have a doubt, i’ve been in so many places…Ithink i found it in a little shop near Lille, a very old shop, opened since like 1946. I went there a lot of times, always finding new stuff, or just listening to the old man second war story.

In onlyMarkers we love markers, but also other objects that could be used to write (for exemple Waterguns, cleaning brushes, …) Do you have any strange tool in your collection? Whats the weird stuff you used to write?

I used to write with blood, urine, food…At a time i was stealing so much ink that i wrote directly with the bottles, which had a very thin way out, so i made tags so drippy you was unable to read my name, it looks like a dog piss! You could just guess it from the shape of the top of my letters, if you know my tag!

The first interview in onlyMarkers are about KR and his brand KRINK.
What do you think about his products and from all the other “Graffiti art brands”?

It’s hard to find it in Lille, we only have one graffiti shop, i’ve been able to put a hand on some diagonal shaped tip silver marker, it’s cool but the cap is weird and close bad.

Cargo, The Marvel Pen

Hi world.

here we go with a new post about an old marker.

I found it on eBay few years ago. Its manufactured by Cargo maybe 20 YbG (Years before Graffiti).
I don’t know anything about the brand, sorry, but i have some pics to share with you.

IMG_2431

The entire set: Box, ink bottle, marker and a pipette.

IMG_2432

The box and all the other elements are totally broken. like as reported on item description :)

IMG_2433

I like it so much the cap. Useful and cold.

IMG_2434

Detroit, Home of Cargo Inc.

IMG_2435

Look the shape of the piece to hang the marker.

IMG_2436

The nib is really simple. The roots.

IMG_2437

Dirty Pipettes. This blog is turning too much fetishist. Sorry.

IMG_2438

IMG_2439

Cube tip is great for tags. Made in U.S.A, i miss the flag.

IMG_2440

The tiger side of the box.

IMG_2441

And the Nicest side over there, Instant dry, writes dry, dries the nib as well…

Conclusion:

Old Markers are nice to see it, but a disgrace to save it in a room full of things. Because is old and you need to take care of him. I prefer plastic markers because is better to carry and are less heavy. But is nice for a marker collection.

Thanks for your time, see you soon there.

PD: This Blog is non periodic. Is more like a website with regular updates.
Sometimes i spend so much hours reading on my RSS Subscriptions the same post everywhere, i prefer an slower kind of Internet surfing :)

Donald the marker

Hi world,

The point of this gem is the shape of Donald Duck.

And the fact of that marker is a gift of my girlfriend, she have a lot of skills in the flea market hunting!
I love you!

Well,

I don’t know hou to use it to write in vertical surfaces, but ill works very nice to make tags on the floor.
I love the orange cap, too simple, lovely. I like it also how raw is the plastic and the paintwork.

With this post i try to share my love to weird markers, i hope you like it.

Tixo Kleber that means Tixo sticky.

Sunsational Bingo Daubers

onfr
Some months ago I was looking to this blog and I saw the unfamous bingo daubers… and i decided to buy some in ebay. I searched for them and I found this fantastic pack of 6 daubers made by the U.S. brand Sunsational.

I’m not really fan of bingo games, so I decided to try the blue one in the street… The ink inside is a kind of gouache paint and brillant, as the packaging says, but when you squeeze it’s really dripy! But it hasn’t sun light resistance. It’s easy to open to remove the ink by a better dark or colored and dripy ink.

The design of the wrapping is just amazing… And eyed and happy bingo cardboard says hello and is sorrounded by a dancing typo and a shinny background full of bubbles. Each ink color is intitled with the color of the packaging. And of course, the 6 daubers are presented inside a faboulous plastic case.

Hace algunos meses estaba visitando este blog y me encontré con los infames “bingo daubbers“… así que decidí comprar alguno por ebay. Los busqué y encontré este fantástico pack de 6 daubers hechos por la marca norteamericana Sunsational.

Yo no soy muy fan del bingo, así que decidí probarlo en la calle… La tinta de dentro es una especie de tempera y brillante, como dice el envase, pero cuando lo aprietas es muy chorreante! Pero aún así, no tiene resistencia a la luz del sol. Es fácil de abrir para cambiar la tinta por una buena y chorreante tinta oscura o de color.

El diseño del envoltorio es simplemente impresionante… Un cartón de bingo con ojos y feliz dice hola y está rodeado por una tipografia bailarina y un fondo brillante lleno de burbujas. Cada color de tinta corresponde al color del envase. Y por supuesto, los 6 daubers están presentados en una fabulosa maleta de plástico.

Tot i això, no té resistència a la llum. És fàcil d’obrir per canviar la tinta per una bona i xorrejant tinta fosca o de color.

El disseny de l’envoltori és simplement impresionant… Un cartró de bingo amb ulls i feliç diu hola i està envoltat per una tipografia ballarina i un fons brillant ple de bombolles. Cada color de tinta correspon a un color de l’envàs. I evidentment, els 6 daubers estàn presentats en una fabulosa maleta de plàstic.
