Montana Colors MTN 94 Fluorescent spray paint Technical Information

Technical Features of MTN 94 Fluorescent Spray Paint

When looking at MTN 94 Fluorescent spray paint from a technical perspective there are some things you need to understand about these cans and fluorescents in general. On the side of every Montana Colors 94 spray paint can, next to the barcode, there is information regarding the opacity levels and UV resistance of the individual spray can color. Like any fluorescent paint (just due to the tendency of fluorescents in general) MTN 94 Fluorescent spray paints have a lower opacity level (2 out of 5). Furthermore, again due to the nature of fluorescents in general, they also have low UV resistance (1 out of 4) – meaning they fade faster than normal colors. This is why we suggest using the MTN 94 Fluorescents in conjunction with Montana Colors PROline White Base Primer. MTN Colors Primer ensures maximum adhesion to the surface being coated, and provides an even base to bring out the brightest most solid coverage of MTN 94 Fluorescent spray paint.  One last tip, if you are using this on fine artwork, or even an outdoor graffiti piece accent, we also recommend coating at least the Fluorescent areas of your work with MTN Colors PROline Varnishes which have UV protectant in them.  This added clear coat will help the Fluorescent spray paint resist fading longer than without it.

Spray Planet Reviews Montana Colors MTN 94 Transparent spray paint

MTN 94 Transparent Spray Paint Overview

Over the years, Montana Colors has developed a line of transparent spray paint colors that should be in every fine artist’s and graffiti artist’s toolkit. Originally designed as part of the MTN Alien line of spray paint, Montana Colors shifted the Transparent spray paint into the MTN 94 line, improved their function and even increased their size to the typical 400ml spray can. The primary reason that MTN 94 Transparents were created were to give artists a tool for adding amazing controlled detail to their works. All 9 colors of the Montana Colors transparent spray can line are available from Spray Planet. The colors in the MTN 94 Transparents line are: Shadow Black, Air White, Breeze Green, Atmosphere Blue, Judea Brown, Ethereal Yellow, Aura Violet, Haze Orange, and Soul Red (shown below). As with the MTN 94 fluorescent range, the MTN 94 Transparent spray paints are low-pressure with a matte finish and come stocked with the Montana Colors Pocket Cap.

Technical Features of MTN 94 Transparent Spray Paint

When you turn a MTN 94 Transparent spray can over and examine the opacity and UV info next to the barcode you will see the features of the transparent cans are strikingly similar to MTN 94 Fluorescent spray paint. However, unlike the MTN 94 Fluorescents, the MTN 94 Transparent spray cans, as the name implies, are meant to be translucent.

This translucent formula has been designed and refined by Montana Colors to produce a spray paint that is used primarily through layering.  This layering allows for the easier and more controlled shadowing or highlighting effect. Typically the effect is applied to specific areas of a graffiti piece, mural or canvas to add depth. Prior to the creation of transparent spray paints, it took artists years and all sorts of spray can tricks and specific tips to create detailed realistic highlights and shadows that elevate the finished work.  With the advent of Montana Colors Transparents, not only did they make application of fine details more accessible to more artists, but simply added a new tool to every artist’s arsenal. From there, artists have utilized Montana Colors MTN 94 Transparents to create the craziest, realistic and fantastical effects and finishing touches to their pieces, murals and artwork.

Overall Features of MTN 94 Transparent Spray Cans

  • Low opacity
  • Low pressure
  • Matte finish
  • Synthetic resin base
  • 400 mL can
  • Available in 9 different shades

Pros of MTN 94 Transparent Spray Paint

  • Allows for shading/highlighting
  • Same cost as the rest of 94 range
  • Multiple applications: graffiti, arts & crafts, DiY, industrial, signage
  • Low pressure allows for precise placement of shade/highlight
  • Fast drying; dry to touch in 10 minutes

Cons of MTN 94 Transparent Spray Paint

  • While easier, there is still a learning curve to using transparents

Graffiti Art and Fine Art Uses For Montana Colors MTN 94 Transparent Spray Paint

MTN 94 Fluorescents & Transparents Final Ruling

Since its inception, Montana Colors has supported graffiti by producing quality paint products for graffiti artists, fine artists and creatives alike. With the development of both MTN 94 Fluorescent and MTN 94 Transparent lines, Montana Colors pushed boundaries and created at least one entirely new category of spray paint tool. By adding both of these spray paint sub-sets to the MTN 94 spray paint line, Montana effectively combined two key artist tools with the top of the line MTN 94 low-pressure valve system – a match made in heaven.

Even though MTN 94 Fluorescent spray paint ranks low on UV resistance and opacity scales, its incredible brightness cannot be ignored. When used in conjunction with the White Base Primer and coated with a UV Varnish from the MTN PROline series MTN Fluorescent colors maintain their rich radiant colors for a longer period of time.

Similarly MTN 94 Transparent spray paints also possess low level readings, but do so purposely as an added tool for graffiti and fine artists. These transparents are THE go-to for any creative looking to add that next level of depth and effects to their spray paint artwork. By allowing the artist to gently overlay colors for any number of effects, Montana expanded the abilities of spray paint and the artists that use them exponentially!
