Shake it!

Spray paint, that is.

This may seem like an obvious thing that everyone knows but believe me you don't.

Montana spray paints are highly pigmented and need a little different shake to the can.

Please watch this video and shake it, baby shake it baby, shake it don't stoppa!

It goes something like this:
take the cap off,
turn can upside down and tap the bottom,
shake side to side upside down
turn can right side up and shake like a normal can for 3 minutes minimum.
