This for when you go tagging first the cans are way lighter less supicious and no one should question you.ITS QUIK,EASY,& Cheap

Step 1: Getting Supplies

Spray paint
empty axe can
A mechanical pencil
plastic bag
paper towels
nasil polish remover

Step 2: Taking the Pencil Apart

Disassemle the pencil and take the plastic tube that holds the lead

Cut no more than an inch off of the tube

Now you have a small tube

Step 3: Making the Tube

Now that you haave the small tube Get your lighter and melt one end

while it is still hot put the tube over the tube already on the axe can so that it can form its shape

Now take it off so that it can cool down and form

After it is cool cut the edges off of theother endso that it kind of looks like an arrow

Step 4: Filling Your Can

put the tube on top of the permanent ube and put the poiny end inside of the spray can

Get a bag of ice and put on the axe can this helps the process go quick

now keep canshorizontal and squeeze them togther
the paint should be flowing

Step 5: Shaking

shake the can every couple of minutes because you do not want it to over fill because paint will fly everywhere

Step 6: Your Done

now To make it look normal get some nail polish remover and clean the paint off of the sides

Step 7: It Does Work

this is my first instructable and i am 15 plz go easy on me thanks
Dude as soon as I get an empty can and a can of spray paint ill morale one
I love this man, I do a lot of stencil tags and I've gotten used to ditching the stencils right after I tag something but I can't afford to ditch the cans of paint also. I guess a backpack full of axe isn't really inconspicuous but its a lot better than a backpack full of paint when the cops show up.

where did you ind a male can?
great idea dude !
what's the ice for ?
this is a good idea i need to try it out, i'm studying art at the moment so when i'm finished i'll be able to bring all different forms of art to the street, i startedof when i was 12,already won a few awards when i was at school for art but my style is way different to what peoiple accept these days, i love bombinmg i could spend ages doing it but carrying spraypaint around all day is hard work so im deffinetly going to give these ago because im going out this weekend to show off my work thanks <br>
Duh! I can see someone spraying their armpits with black paint! LOL
Seen on the Prince of Bel Air opening = 0:19 sec<br>http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UoWnHMlhPvk
i hate to think what your carpet looked like after this exercise!<br>You know, it might be a good idea to do this outside or in the garage.
I like this, s'pretty simple to follow and it'll save me a few suspicious looks. Thanks for the upload!
nice tag but what dose it say?
on the "what you need list" u wrote nasal polish remover i mean who uses polish on ther nose
it says nail polish
cool idea any way :)
hmm wonder if i could do somethink like this but with water
Any1 know what dat is?
not that good for tagging freestyle, but excelent for filling and quick (although a bit messy) for stencils
aesowme dont think i could do that in my house tho. too messy. lol
im trying to make peper spray and put it in a can like this and re pressureise it any ideas
use a pump spray like windex comes in
yeah it was shooting eggs, the used the inside tube of a plastic lead fill pencil
Check out the video by shooting eggs or kipkay (don't remember). He just puts the refill of a pen on the nozelles.
another kind of can that works amazingly is bug spray or sun screen and it is probably the least suspicious
You i love this man.....ive always had trouble concealing the ball bearings in the cans...i hear magnets are good...but this is definitly graffitti made easy.. :)
but changing the caps would be kind of a problem.. not as good with axe....
an easy way to get rid of all your dreg cans!!!<br/>go to here:<br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://monstercolors.com/index.php">http://monstercolors.com/index.php</a><br/>buy one of these:<br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://monstercolors.com/cappop04.htm">http://monstercolors.com/cappop04.htm</a><br/><br/>then follow these instructions:<br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://monstercolors.com/info02.php">http://monstercolors.com/info02.php</a><br/><br/>it really does work...we started to try and mix paints back in the late 80's because we couldnt get pink so easily in the uk. i did do it once sucessfully, but lacked the scientific logic that these instructions on the links show.<br/>i managed to knock about 15 / 16 dreg cans into one full 400ml can (it made an interesting pink!!)<br/><br/>enjoy!!<br/>
ya man
uh...there is an easier way to do this...all you need is a new can of krylon with a male adaptor and any female aerosol can...just hold the krylon can up rite and the female upside down and press down on the male adaptor...its easier and alot less messy
ok... i have been mixing my paint for years, or putting near empties together... put the can u wan paint in, into a freezer for 30 min. cool gas has molecules that are closer together, so less pressure. and then warm on can up in luke warm water, NOT HOT! its pressure will increase. then go to a shop or 0ebay and buy a $0.40 nib that is designed for mixing paint!! connect the nibs. hold the warm can upside down and the one you want to fill normal way up. hey presto! ps: by-the-by its not a crime carrying spray paint. however caught hiding it? IS SUSPECT! pps: im not raining on anyones parade just giving extra advice.
Hey this is really cool... but ive tried it a few times and each time i barely get any paint into the can.. what can i try to fill the can with paint? thanks
I got a question. Once you start to get paint into the axe can, wouldn't it start to push paint into the spray can?
Can u use the twist top type of lynx?
could you put up photos of what the arrow point looks like? i think im making it too short or to thick, not sure.
I did the same trick with Ralgex heat spray. Less messy, but a good booby-trap to leave lying about! L
i was wondering if you could put asthma medicine in an axe can via the same method as paint? Not that i need to take medicine out of a can of deodorant....and (this is proby a numb question) is it safe??
NO! Do not do it, there might be excess gas in the axe can, which is not good for you. Don't be a chicken, take your asthma medicine properly. (You'll die if you don't)
Why...? L
this does NOT work, ive tried over and over but instead of the paint runing to the other can it sprays all over the place, any tips or solutions would help
im a bit confused. can anyone give better instructions on the tube plz? should it open the valve on the empty can when pressed down? do u just cut the sides of it to put it into the other can or is it better to melt and shape it?
dat shit is hot iam gunna do dis more often
This instructable is brilliant, props to catchinbugs79. Ive wanted to know this trick for a long time. Now Im beginning to understand how those mixing nozzles that connect the two cans work. Thanks you so much for this technique on the covert spray can, I cant wait to catch some wreck with this.
alright, i was just in my frnt yard doing this, it works perfectly, but if you use a gel pen tube as opposed to a mechanical pencil, it will work without cuttin the tip at all, i hold the cans vertically, without ice, it works fine for me, alright, thats my two cents, peace
although i couldnt get this to work, tagging is what runs the streets. what happened to freedom to express and big deal if a wall gets a coat or two, aslong as the tagger isnt a toy and can properly weild a can
i am gonna try this!
This is an excellent technique and isn't restricted to tagging. Any spraypaint user could benefit from a way to put paint into a can with a different type of nozzle. Nicely done!
You can buy different shaped nozzles to regular spray paint cans. Tagging is the only field where this instructable has any use (concealing spray paint can).
Yeah but those nozzles, for the good ones, get really expensive. I like lots of different and new ideas for painting, I not only use the cans but also have the air brush and compressor. And it can also be used as a funny way to get your friend to paint his armpits yellow :P
i was thinkin the same thing!!! could be funny to have an obviouse deoderant can in my school bag(with paint) so if anyone tries to steal it they get painted!
