Before you start Creating:
  • Remove the shrink-wrap!
  • Unscrew the roller cap and remove the inner seal.
  • Replace the roller cap and turn until it "clicks" - arrow lines up with "open lock" icon.
  • Shake the marker about 15 seconds.
  • Turn marker upside-down, squeeze and roll on sidewalk/driveway until paint flows out easily.
For Best Results:
  • Don’t forget to shake well!
  • Give the sidewalls of the container a small squeeze while attempting to roll the ball to get paint up into the ball chamber.
  • Give more small squeezes, if necessary, to recoat the ball with additional paint.

  • Always rinse the roller cap and paint holder under warm water before changing colors or storing.

Storage Tips:
