    Started Mural

    I finally started the mural on my patio last week. I decided to do a saltwater angelfish scene. I'm about half done with it now. I have about 16 hours in (not including drawing and cutting out the stencils), but the 1st 4 were washed away in a storm on the second day of painting, so I had to start over again. I have more fish, coral and plants to add, and I'm adding a cave and a mako shark. Almost everything I have so far needs to be hand painted and touched up, but I think it's coming along.

    Really nice, it looks great. Wish I could do something like that. it reminds me of the those 3d paintings people do on the sidewalks.

    I rolled on primer and a navy blue base coat, but the rest is all spray paint. I used the stock nozzles. I planned to buy a bunch of tips, but I couldn't find any around where I live, and once I had the paint I had to get started. It would go a lot smoother with a nice set of nozzels, but It's not too bad.

    Well, its looks great!!

    You can buy them online, but looks like you never needed the tips in the first place. You have mad crazy talent!!

    Plus I think I heard something about the smaller/thinner tips not really doing much difference. I can't remember though.
