No urban painter is properly equipped without traffic cones.
Before you begin painting a street scene, place two cones in the street in front of you to secure the view. If you don’t, a 12-foot high delivery truck will park right in front of you.
No one will question the authority of traffic cones, especially if you stencil them with official-looking markings.
They also come in handy as distinctive apparel to wear to gallery openings.
