East Village, Avenue A
As far as I know, graffiti writers only ever use commercial spray paint (traditionally raced from a store, but sometimes even supplied to the writer by a paint company who has decided to sponser a famous graff artist!). Such spray cans only come in the colours that the paint factories produce. Pro artists on the other hand mix their own paints for themselves. Knowing how to mix colours to get the right colour or shade you’re after is an important tool in an artists arsenal, but one that seems to be unavailable to graff writers: how the hell do you mix colours and get them back into the aresol can? Considering the igeniuity that writers displayed with realizing that different types of nozzles could be fitted to spray cans in order to shape the spraying paint; this could be a possibility.
