Any kind of art can get messy. You will want to create a dedicated work space for yourself where it doesn't matter if you get colors on something. You will need ventilation so that you do not inhale any dust. You can achieve this by working outdoors. If this is not possible, choose a space with an open wall like a garage, or work in front of an open window with fans to blow the air away from you. It's possible to buy or build a spray booth to isolate any over spray and remove it.
Another thing you will need is a compressor to power your airbrush. Some artists are scared of air compressors because they look complicated and too mechanical. Please don't be scared! Once you have purchased one and tried it out with your new air-brush, I can guarantee you will never want to go back. There are so many things that you can do with air that you cannot do with a regular paint brush. It will open many doors for you.
First thing you're going to do roll on the mortar color first. For the mortar I use a lighter shade of gray than the stone color.....which is best black. Very dark and forbidding. You're going to want to get an extension pole for your roller or this might get hard. Broom handles work in a pinch and are even the right thread count. I then park all the vehicles on the street to free up room in the drive. You want fairly firm ground so the job of rolling paint evenly goes easy. Concrete is ideal but I've seen some dirt driveways that will work just as well given all the small stones are raked or swept so as not to poke through the cardboard and to insure even paint coverage. What will not work well is the lawn or your neighbors lawn so just use his driveway instead.
Loose pieces are not usually allowed by LTL carriers as a pallet provides stability from pieces bouncing around in a truck and getting damaged. This is usually just listed on the shipping documentation and confirmed by the carrier for acceptance. The items may have wheels and are loaded on the truck as they are. Pieces are also counted by how many boxes are being shipped or the number of objects inside a box.
Aside from all the success and great prices on tools, most people want to know if the tools you get from Harbor Freight are of good quality. We are taught from a young age that if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. But this is not always the case as I have come to find out. Harbor Freight offers some great quality tools at very competitive prices.
