Default Vintage Spray Paint-Who Knew?

In my quest to collect all the items from the Centuri 1971 catalog, several of the areas I have had to delve into are those products carried in that catalog but manufactured by other companies. Companies such as Xacto (an entire education there), Grifhold, Badger, Pactra, Prostripe, Wilhold Glue, and Krylon. Iíve had fairly good success in obtaining most of the items from those manufacturers, but like a great many vintage items, there are always one or two items or products that are harder to find than others.

But I had one area that I had no idea that brought such fairly incredible prices as some vintage spray paints, and Krylon is among them. Now, Iíve gotten all the vintage Krylon spray paint colors carried by Centuri, in age-correct vintage cans, with the exception of Krylon flat white and fluorescent pink (cerise as Krylon called it).

Iíve seen vintage Krylon and Rustoleum spray paint cans go for $200-$400. I was following a vintage Krylon Fluorescent Cerise tonight that just closed. It was a bit newer than the age range I am hunting for (this one had a bar code, so it was too new), but it still went for $213! Link: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Kr...ordt=true&rt=nc

So, model rockets are not the only things that go for surprising amounts of cash.

If you have these "back of the catalog" items setup display-style it would be cool to see some pics of them.

I can remember the first three cans of spray paint that I bought for my very first rocket builds: True Value Black, White, and Yellow. I had not yet learned about "primer".

As Scott said, photos of your collection would be very cool to see!

Yes, that would be cool to see...even for me! Unfortunately, I'm a pretty far ways away from any formal photos of items. This 'arm' of the Centuri collection just started to take life this past summer with the initial dive into the Xacto world. From there I realized there were several 'groupings' of products in that Centuri catalog by other manufacturers that I might have luck obtaining. I moved on to the Pacta dopes, the Badger airbrushes, and the Krylon paints to begin with.

So, most of what I have obtained of these items is still in boxes even. But one day when the 'rocket room' gets a little more of the cleanup and makeover it so desparately needs right now I'll probably do that.

I have been searching for a reasonably priced Vintage full can of Rust-Oleum Cascade Green for years. It has a special sentimental value for me from something it was used to paint in 1975.
It pops up often on ebay in FULL cans, but they always go for over $100.
I'm not paying that for ANY 13oz can of spray paint.
