    In the winter I just stick to throwups and tags because of the weather.
    I hate winter; we got our first snowfall a few days ago- global warming has becoming fucking terrifying.

    wear thin glove liners with big latex gloves on the outside.

    or just the glove liners.

    thin but warm is best. get somthin with gore-tex or some shit.

    Keep your krylon cans warm
    warm as you can keep them
    Rusto with NY fats is a No No
    It drips like a bitch then freezes
    Also Those thin black gloves (another pair if you want)
    And the latex free rubber gloves
    there like 97 cents but free to rack
    Big coat with hoodie
    Sweat pants then jeans
    2 pairs of socks

    -wool socks

    -JACK A BUNCH of hand warmer packets from wally world, and put them everywhere you want. I put one in each shoe and it honestly cooks my feet, it's awesome. To keep the cans warm, put a hand warmer in the bottom of a sock, then slide the can in after it, this way the heat raises up through the can (the hand warmers last more than 10 hours).

    -can't tell you much on gloves. I've been SOL in the gloves department. I even live in the middle of Colorado, and I can't manage to figure out how to keep my hands warm. Usually everything on my body gets fried except my hands (hand warmer overload). It gets below freezing at night here.

    JACK A BUNCH of hand warmers....can't tell you enough..

    edit: Rack one of those gun-like handles with the trigger that click onto your can..
    THEY WILL SAVE YOUR HANDS. They wont fit if you have a tip with a donut base on it (orange dots, etc), so stick with rusto with rusto fats on em.

    put on 2 FRESH pairs of socks on your feets...

    sweat pants under jeans or even basket shorts under jeans are not an absolute necessity but it helps a lot.

    The #1 ennemy in winter when you're outside is humidity...
    if you wear 87 layers of wet clothes you're gonna get frostbites anyways!

    Getting in and out of buildings is a no no, why?

    when you get into a hot place you sweat... it makes your clothes wet, the you go outside this humidity chill the shit out of you!

    as far as paint goes i dont know why you're still painting in iwnter since it is chemically impossible to get somethin straight in that weather but as a snowmobiler i know a few things about cold and clothing lol!

    why would u wanna keep your paint warm? i tend to put my cans in the fridge b4 i go writing cause the paint tends to flow out of the can better. just a trick i think works well.

    but outside its going to be freezing so they will cool to much that the pressure in the can will be a lot lower so no paint will come out or very little will.
