    I'm in the same situation right now...my boy is prone to frostbite, he got a mild case on his trigger finger even though we were wearing gloves...

    What slows down the time my finger freezes is while you'rer switching caps, or picking up another color, or just any situation in which you're not using your trigger finger, put them inside your mouth breath warm air on them. ATT: this is with gloves, and if you paint without spitting shit all over you- you dont want to be eating paint.

    Your fingers are still going to be cold but trust me, if you got some hot lungs like i do, you can slow down the process of that numbness...

    Oh and I'm still to try those athlete hand warmers, i played baseball all my life and ive tried them before..just rub the small rag together and its warm as hell....for bombing its a way diff situation so i'd have to figure that out still, there might be ways of painting WITH that in ur glove...jus let me get a hold of some small tools...

    invest in high quality hunting or diving gloves , they work well and arent so thick.

    get one of those refillable metal handwarmers, you fill them with lighter fluid and light them, they come in a little pouch and you just put it in your pocket or wherever, no flame on them, they just look like a zippo lighter sort of.

    when it was cold enough here, i just used semi-thin cotton gloves, and wore rubber finishing gloves over them. these are thicker than latex, but they have grips and very reusable. about the frozen fingers...just warm it with your breath, stick it in your pocket, and cry it off on the way home...or you could be a pussy and wait 'till spring ;)

    every few minutes, stop and put your hands down your pants..let em warm back up for a sec, and start painting again.

    i know it sounds ridiculous, but it works..i just did this the other night
    it was about 10 degrees..i made it thru the piece even tho some of my paint froze.
