Road Markings

Loading thread data ...
What you want to do with the tape is to mask off areas that you don't want painted and spray some paint. Pull up the tape and you are done. Tape usually doesn't handle the regular handling for very long but the paint that gets put down where tape isn't does last for a good long while. For road lines, get some striping tape from the automotive painting place and lay down that stuff for the center stripe. A piece of cardboard with slots in it will act as a mask for the dashed lines while just spraying the line(s) will do for the curves where the lines are solid.

I'm surprised than nobody mentioned using colored artist pencils.
They look and function like a pencil but come in many colors (including metalllic, white and yellow). They are wax based (like crayons).
They make excellent road markings! And the lines already look weathered, or you can rub some of it off to make the lines look even more worn.
They should be available in Arts or Crafts stores.
