    I can only manage one piece a night right now. By that time, I can't feel my fingertips. I probably could wait a while till my hands warmed up to do another one.

    Oh, could there be a reason why my yard has gotten a huge shortage of freights? We use to have like 3 lines consisitently. Now we usually only have one with like 20 hoppers. Do freights travel less in the winter?

    You are required by the rules of graffiti to do at least 10 a night. Anything less, and you're instantly disqualified.

    thats great.

    heres the trick with winter bombing, or at least for me. it dosent get really cold around these parts but what i do when it dips into the single digits is get some cheap bootleg isotoners that fit your hand snug. then wear work gloves over them. it has worked great for me in the times that i've painted in 40 & 50 below temps. also never wear laytex gloves in the dead cold. they make your hand sweat, and if you take it off and expose your wet hand to the sub zero air..well then you've got problems my friend.

    yeah I've tried the armpits thing, and it does work but only for alittle bit, then my hands freeze up. You know those packs that get really warm when you break them or whatever? what if you wrapped that around your can?

    Is that what you were kinda talking about AWF?

    im a loser,
    1 a night.
    the rubber/latex gloves do suck ass as far as cold goes.
    i used some cloth gloves with the little beads on them for grip.
    i would have been fine if my cans werent already cold.
    as for paint bein drippy, i suggest krylon with greydots or german outlines.
    i dont get near as many runs out of those with krylon, and they dont fit rusto.
    but rusto would be hard to stop running anyway (for me).
    i dont like some thick gloves because you cant really feel how much your pushing your spray cap down. then you end up spraying too much, then your dripping, then your pissed.

    anyway. thats my $.015 (savin the other half for that sweet lil thang down tha street.)

    Seriously, I normally do one or two a night anyways. We don't have tons of spots, so my theory is to just paint the shit out of the ones I can. I guess I could paint more, but I'm not too into the stamp thing anyways. I suppose I could do three stamps in the time it takes to do one piece, so I guess about 3 a night. If you're looking for a number to compete against.
