    Painting Tips

    • Do not paint on the white lines or parking lot curbs—tape the edges of your parking spot before painting
    • Sweep the dirt and pebbles off of the parking spot before you begin to paint
    • Use chalk to draw out your sketch
    • Start painting at the front of your spot out to the end (front bumper to back bumper) because there are others working beside you and you cannot step on their spot
    • Consider making a stencil ahead of time for lettering or detailed images to save a lot of time
    • Bring extra plastic containers (no glass) for water and brushes
    • Bring a drop cloth or plastic sheeting to put under paint cans; no paint is permitted outside of your spot
    • Limit your paint palette as quarts of paint are expensive or share colors with a friend
    • Bring a pop-up tent to stay out of the sun when you paint
    • Bring a stool, sheet of cardboard, or towel to sit on
