    i'll probably get called a toy and such but I'm asking anyway. (BTW, I am a toy, check me out at snowb0red.deviantart.com)

    how do you see in the dark ? i mean, let's say, hypothetically, I wanna go paint this chill wall, but I can only do it in the graveyard hours coz it's on a highway that has a fair bit of traffic during the day but none at night.

    So, take a torch ? a dead giveaway to anyone nearby. and plus I hate holding while painting.

    So, how do you guys see anything at all at 3 am. My nightvision sucks ass.

    Let me know.

    You should be able to see contrast on the wall as soon as you start to paint... if not try a cell phone. :spent:

    cell phone
    blue or red glowstick...the tiny ones that go in your mouth are pretty good
    mini maglight...with either purple dark blue or dark grey film over it.

    the grey film over the maglight is nice since it makes the area look like it being naturally lit by the moon but its still kinda dark..



    or you can try painting in the sunrise hours when the sun hasnt come up just yet it may give you about an hour-30 minutes to paint..

    I usually set a maglight on the ground so I can kinda see the wall and I dont have to hold it. When I was little though my aunbt bought me a flashlight that goes on your head, im thinking about using that next time.
