40 All New Montana Colors Hardcore Spray Paint Colors

While definitely an amazing spray paint and ideal tool for writing graffiti, the MTN Hardcore spray paint line hasn’t been without its faults, the most widely spoken about among graffiti writers being color palette. The MTN Hardcore color chart has been known to be somewhat limited with no even gradient (or in-between steps) for many of the color sets as many artist are used to with the MTN 94 spray paint line. While the color range was game changing when it was released, as time has passed and new lines came out, the Hardcore Line has maintained almost the same color range as when it was launched.

As of this month, that all changes! Montana Colors has expanded the MTN Hardcore color line and has added a MASSIVE 40 NEW colors! That’s right, 40 BRAND NEW colors for you to mix-and-match and experiment with on your next graffiti piece, commissioned job, or personal art project! Some of these NEW MTN Hardcore colors include: Cream, Rust Red, Pure Purple, Apricot, Hortensia Blue, Caribbean Blue, Treze Violet, Puchineli White, Potosi Green, Reggae Green, City Grey, and Squatter Grey, just to name a few of the Spray Planet team favorites!

Montana Colors has gone the extra mile and has filled in tons of the color steps while simultaneously adding NEW color steps that haven’t been seen before in the MTN Hardcore family. Like using grey tones and monochrome? Well, you’re in luck! A whole new set of greys have been added to the MTN Hardcore lineup ranging from a soft, light grey (Arkalis Grey) all the way to a deep, warm grey (Nazgul Grey). There are also some new sets of teal-ish blues for you to try that have EXCELLENT opacity levels and will cover just about anything in one single pass. These colors range from the lighter side with Vintage Blue and gradient all the way down to a deeper Ocean Blue.  Perhaps the most notable thing about the NEW MTN Hardcore colors is the fact that it broadens the color spectrum into pastel tones that are similar to those seen in the MTN 94 family. These lighter, pastel tones allow for a much cleaner gradient in the steps of the MTN Hardcore color palette.

How do I come up on a list or catalog with all colors Montana has to offer?

I had the chance to use a couple of the new colors the other day—splendid! The lighter blues coat super well and they don’t overspray or dust over like other brands. I’m amped to try the other colors now.
