The colouring trash picker is a tool with which you can clean the streets and at the same time colour them! The graffiti can attached to the trash picker, will spray paint by pinching the handle of the trash picker which you also use for grabbing the trash.
In the list below you find everything you need for making this tool. It is possible your trash picker does not work exactly the same as used for this construction. In that case maybe some adjustments are necessary to make it work.

Step 1: Get Yourself a Trash Picker and Graffiti Can
Just like this trash picker, most of them work with a cable walking through the pole.
By grabbing the handle, an axle moves to the back on witch the cable is connected. On the other end (the bottom end) the cable is attached to the grabber, which closes due the pulling movement of the cable.
You also need one graffiti can already, for being able to adjust the construction to the right can size and making sure youre construction works!
Step 2: Attach the Clamps for Mounting the Graffiti Can
You open and close the hose clamps with a screwdriver or a wrench.
Step 3: Make the Metal Strip That Will Push the Graffiti Can
Step 4: Drill a Hole Above the Superior Clamps
Step 5: Mount the Graffiti Can
Step 6: Weld the Spacer to the Metal Strip
Now assemble the spacer again, being attached to the metal strip.
(the construction in the picture is not exactly the same as described above, but it works the same. Here was used a long threaded rod, a nut, and a spacer without thread. The threaded rod is welded on the metal strip)
