Street Painting Safety Gear

Street painting in Hudson, New York.
Painting a street view sometimes means standing in the street. The advantage of the street position is that the view isn't blocked by parked cars. But it's good to follow basic safety precautions. I like to use a traffic cone and a safety triangle (links take you to Amazon).

The safety triangle sits on a weighted base. The reflective triangle pieces fold down. I cut the "Department of Art" stencil to customize the traffic cone. You can also wear a reflective safety vest or even reflective suspenders over your clothes to allow cars to see you.
