So my homie Earn UCA sent me a couple of pics today. Within those pics there was one of me holding a Jungle Green and a Plum Purple...ahhhhhhh - those colors!
I miss those colors by Krylon. Plum Purple, Clover Green, Hot Pink, Aqua Turquoise, Baby Blue, Coral, Avocado Green, Rasberry Pink, Icy Grape, Brick, School Bus Yellow....
How's that for a rack full of paint....nice right?
Man, those were some colors, specially Brick which was only around for a little bit. Other colors that were or are dope are: True Blue, Banner Red, the old Cherry Red...pssss...I can go on about the colors Krylon used to bust out with. I don't know what happened to Krylon too. Their paint got way watery and then recently converted their tips to this weak female fan tip which sucks.
I guess it is their way of "fighting and preventing" graffiti since they have, over years, claimed to be anti-graffiti even though I believe that writers have maintained them afloat and in business for years.
I can clearly remember the first time I used these colors. Any of them. And I have seen some colors that Belton and Montana put out that are similar but to me they seem to fall short of the actual shade of these colors. I get excited when I see a color by any of these brands that are similar to the colors listed above. I know you may be like, "Galo, calm down, It ain't that serious" but these colors were some of the first I used when I began rocking the walls back in 84.
Anyhow - here is the pic...what ya'll think? sitting like a king right?
