He is just asking where everyone paints out of curiousity.

And to answer the question, I use Krylon Fusion and I do it on the back patio stones because we are putting in a new deck with new stones, so for now it doesn't really matter. When we have the new stones, I guess the same place, just with newspaper.

I had glitter all over my shoes for a lil while because of that stuff. (I used 2 shades of that charcoal color that they put on those lexus' and beatles so there's a lil bit of glitter in it to make it shimmer)

I use Krylon Fusion but am having a hard time finding where it's located. Wal-marts don't have the entire color list.

For ventilation (like in a garage) there are four things to do:

1) Get all cars out so the paint doesn't stink up the fabric like it does)
2) Open the garage door
3) Wear a mask (for your own safety, I got light headed when I didn't use one)
4) Paint near the edge of the garage (near the door) so you the area gets ventilated quickly

Hmmm, also, if the wind blows things into your arage, it is a good idea to have a fan blowing the air out of the garage, but that is optional.

I prefer using the backyard. If it is not going to have good weather, simply don't do the mod that day.

I paint in the basement on an old table covered in newspaper. Not good ventilation down there, that's why it took me a week to paint my case. Had to take my time so the whole house didn't smell like paint. And I use Krylon.

Krylon Fushion in the back yard on two saw horses and a piece of old wood running across it. Didn't matter if it got on the wood because it was old anyways.
