    You only have to be 18 to bye paint dawgg.
    And or go to self check out and don't bye cheap blacks and whites cus they I'D for those for some reason but not for rustos and krylon . And just tell your not gonna huff it and they sell it to you . Say you gotta paint your bike . And when you go back next week tell em you didn't like the colour so your gonna change it lol . ......

    Or steal it ......

    In my experience, five finger discount works only if you are quick. But I know different states have different laws when it comes to the purchaser's age. Bombing Science is good for mail order, art stores are second best, hardware stores are a good go to. If you go to Walmart, that is cheap paint and not really good. Rust Os are the best for the price and availability at different stores. If you live near a college there will be an art store somewhere nearby, always search online for stores. And do homework, check local laws, in some states one time can stop you for having paint cans on you. It's enough for a ticket sometimes, depends on the cop. I know where I'm at now there isn't laws regarding paint cans for minors, but where I grew up, there were laws. I know it sucks. But always watch your six and stay safe and get up.

    steal your paint bro im in nyc they don't sell to people under 21.

    funny, it used to be 18 around here and they changed the policy recently.

    your best bet is to rack the paint, you can get more that way anyhow.

    at least that's how i circumvented that problem when i was under 21, don't be a pussy and steal properly, no not while the camera is looking do it where there are no cameras we call those blind spots
