    I've got a difficult stencil to put up which is going to have to be done using a roller tied to the end of pole.

    The stencil's bigger than me - 2m x 2m and access is going to be a problem. There's a deep 2 or 3m trench to be leant across to get to the wall, and on the other side of the wall there'll be people sleeping. Using a roller & fitting it & the stencil to poles seems like the fastest way of doing this - but I've never used one before and I've heard all sorts of bad things about rollers messing everything up.

    Is this true? Has anyone got any advice about keeping the mess to a minimum?

    Cheers.

    It really doesn't matter if you make a mess
    as long as the stencil's held in place right....

    Or are you asking something different?

    Is there some kind of unwritten rule about leaving houses alone?

    Yes, unless you like making random people have to pay to repaint their houses.

    So what you're saying is hands off anything that isn't public property & unless you can be certain it's public property don't spray it?

    I don't agree with that & from the tags & stencils plastering hundreds of private walls just about everywhere I'd say most other artists don't go along with that either.

    It doesn't really matter here because this isn't some random person.

    So the roller won't mess things up? No special techniques I should know about?

    cheers

    Think about it like this: D o you want someone to tag your house with something you don't like? I remember a kid here that would tag people's garbage cans, and some turned out to be writers. Just tag public property and advertisments.

    well you think about this: if you owned a advertisement or paid taxes for your public property, would you want it to be vandalized?

    Just use the roller--------- without the stencil.

    Or you can just fill it in with a german jumbo, although the
    roller is much more quiet if there is people sleeping near by.

    This is just a question but--------- if it is going to be that big
    does it even have to be a stencil, cant it just be a piece?

    I know that was sort of off the subject but I was just wondering.:confused:
