When preparing for soccer or lacrosse on your field, you’ll need to not only line the field but additionally prepare the field with circles. Painting a circle utilizes similar steps and practices that are used to stripe a field. Here’s your step by step guide for painting a circle using an airless striper.
Step 1: To begin, find the center spot of your circle using a tape measure. Mark the circle with a stake. If you’re at center field, you’ll want to stake the center directly on the line.
Step 3: When laying out the path of your circle, use aerosol paint to dot out the full circumference of the circle
Step 4: There are two methods to painting a circle with an airless striper machine.
Method 1: With the front wheel locked, paint along the outer edge of the circle following the dots as a reference.
Method 2: To paint the circle with the front wheel unlocked and mobile, release the wheel by holding the handle on the left-side of the machine. With the wheel fluid, maneuver around the circle, connect each dot around the circle.
