    i need advice for a roller with an outline and forcefield on a freight.
    first, whats the best freight to do them on.
    what kind of paint to use?
    and techniques for getting straight horizontal outlines.
    any help would be appreciated.

    it would make sense to do it on a flat car, right ? use oil based paint. getting a straight outline should be easy, just dip the roller in the paint and then move it across the surface the way you want. oh yeah, clean up the drips on the rocks and shit when you get done.

    yeah, but the part on the horizontal outlines... when ur standing on the ground with the extension reach the top doing a horizontal line, its impossible to have all of the roller touching the freight if u get what im saying. anyone have techniques or something for that, i was thinking about bending the end of the roller.

    and about thw paint, i was planning on using a quart of painters touch berry pink, but its acrylic latex, and says can clean up with soap and water.. should i not use this?

    :lol: money!!!!!


    about the horizontal outline, i didn't rightly understand what you meant the first time. i think there are rollers that you can adjust to go parallel with the pole, or you could nigger rig a roller to go on the end of the pole with duct tape or something.

    btw you can buy quarts of rollout for under two bucks and they make rollers as small as two inches.

    climb on top of the car. do it on a wheatie. soap and water, thats for cleaning it off skin, paitn comes off skin easy. acrylic latex should work fine.

    right. because the five dollars it costs for a gallon of OOPS paint would be severely detrimental to your finances.
