To me, the only way to put a new paint brand to the test is by painting sumthin’ complex and technical, so I did what I do best, a wildstyle. As you can tell, my letters are evil and super hard, definitely not soft, and to get these results, I must cut and clean my lines and to do so, I require quality paint. Flame provides the efficiency that I’m seeking.
How can I describe the paint? To me, the feeling of using Flame paint is just like making Love to a woman and ejaculating all over her face. It’s thick, it covers wells, the only difference is that Flame paint does not drip! The pressure is perfect. What I like is that you can easily choose how your lines come out. Depending on how hard you press the cap, you can really control the flow of your spray. Whether you’re trying to gently outline a burner, or if you’re straight up rocking tags on somebody’s property, Flame allows you to do it all. So else do you want? For this specific piece, I only used the cap that comes with the can, I’m satisfied with the results. I was also totally wasted during the whole process of this piece, turned out pretty good.
I was painting with mostly Molotow in the past few years. I’m happy the Flame paint is out so I can finally boycott Molotow. The quality is just as good but the price is better. Anyways, at the end of the day just remember this, if you’re a toy, you’re a toy, if you’re a king, you’re a king. Paint is paint and once you master your can control, it don’t change shit what kind of paint you use. A dope writer should able to properly rock regardless of the paint brand he is using. That’s my word! / KILLA EF / thanks to BOMBING SCIENCE!

Graffiti Artist GESER of 3A Crew just tested the FLAME BLUE Line, here is his feedback!
From the first time I heard about the new FLAME line of paint, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on some to try it out. Having used Molotow Premium exclusively for the last 4 years, I must say that my standards and expectations were quite high going into it.
As a first impression, the silver cans have a high-quality, classy look with a nice large color ring (making it easy to spot the color you are looking for). From the very first lines I made to put up my sketch, one of the first things I noticed was the valve system… pushing down the cap was so smooth and easy a baby could do it! The benefits of an easy valve system are obvious… precise can control and less fatigue after hours of painting.
It’s no secret that green is one of my favorite colors, so I decided to use a range of greens as the basis of my fill. As far as caps are concerned, I am a creature of habit and continue to stick to what has worked for me for years… NY fat and NY outline caps. I was able to fill the entire piece surprisingly fast. The paint covered solid in one shot and blended easily with the next color in my fade all the way up to white at the top.
Outlining is my favorite stage of the piecing process, (and probably the stage that gives many beginning writers the most anxiety!) and this is where the valve system really shined. Even when the can was totally full, it had that “last-quarter can” low pressure control right from the start. The lines were sharp (despite painting with a strong tunnel cross-wind), and required no cleaning up. Despite Flame Blue being a low-pressure can, I was able to achieve very wide and even output for my background blends, which makes it a very versatile can. Being able to work both large areas quickly, and small areas with precision with the same can is a huge plus.
Overall, my high expectations were met (if not exceeded) during my initial trial of this line. The most noticeable strengths are:
1. Effortless valve system = increased can control and less fatigue
2. Matte finish paint covers quickly & smoothly in one shot
3. Vibrant colors
4. Precise low-pressure control for details (while still able to smoothly fill large areas quickly)
5. Low odor
6. The cans look cool!
I look forward to using FLAME more extensively, and am especially interested in seeing how the black outlines chrome…the true test!!! (GESER 3A)

Bombingscience.com was kind enough to give the oppurtunity to try this new Flame paint from Molotow. At my arrival to pick up my paint, I was surprised to see the great color selection that the Flame provides and also how « flashy » the colors were. The color selection was so great I had a hard time figuring out what I needed versus what I wanted. Although I only picked up low pressure paint, the Flame was a gem to work with. The control of the pressure was very natural and the opacity of the paint was very thick, so very easy to cover.
I think I had 2 little issues regarding the Flame. 1- was the clogging of the paint, but that I think was only a shaking problem. A few minutes after a good shake and a new tip, the paint was good as new. 2. Was the smelling. At one point after full shaded piece, I had thaught there was a natural gas leak and was kinda freaked out. But only to realize that it was the paint.
But I think that’s just me looking for problems on a near perfect product. Both light and dark colors are pretty bright and very fun to work with. I was always a Belton product user’s and now very happy to switch to the Flame paint. Shout out to Bombingscience.com for this coll opportunity, and very stoked to use this flame paint for next season.
