Snyder's Special Recipe

Snyder has a secret weapon when getting up.  Or actually more of a secret recipe . . .

For most artists, once glue is applied to normal printing paper, there is a short window between the time the piece gets stuck to the wall, or else the wetness will cause the paper to start falling apart.

Snyder does not have this problem.  Since Snyder's stencils are each customized and composed of hand dripped layers of paint, his street pieces are much thicker.  This allows Snyder to apply glue, and then carry his piece to whatever spot it plans to get up.
