back when i worked at the motel, we had a machine that held the spray paint upside down with a trigger and it was all on wheels, just measure out the lines, use a chaulk like, and roll the machine along the chaulk line pulling the trigger to disperse the paint....

I work part time for a guy who does some seal coating and have done many seal coating jobs on the side myself. The best lines youll get are either from a professional machine or from a paint roller and a bucket of paint. The spray paint and the little spray paint machine the previous member stated do work but i dont think the lines come out as great and the dont look as neat. If your going to do small lot lines just measure the spaces before and after seal coating, maybe take pictures of how things were so you can remember stuff like that can help. Get some marking chalk, mark out where you want to put the lines then jus stripe away. Good luck.

Buy a professional machine , either an airless graco , or speed flow , or an air atomizing machine like a Kelly creswell . Airless run about 4500.00 and an air atomizing runs about 3 grand . Forget paint cans or the unit that looks like a bug sprayer . A good set of plactic stencils will run you about 600 dollars for starters. I run 5 machines , both types , we do about a thousand spaces a week .
