    i'd cover the bag from inside with plastic and the bottom with scotch tape before doing it the paint from inside soaks into the bag (even when small quantity) and gets visible from outside

    Nawww, if you did that all the paint would just pour out of the bottom, giving you splats and dribbles.... I imagine you get this anyway but more so if you made it waterproof on the inside.

    of course, no one would hear or smell the spray paint... it's special ninja spray paint

    This actually does work I've done it in the past and still haven't got caught.

    It would be even cooler if you could set a timer on the spray can and then leave the bag. That way you dont have to stand there and get caught.

    So you rig up something that gets destroyed once they find it? I'll take my chances getting caught.

    imagine doing this with a box, but instead of a stencil, make a foam cuttout stamp, wrap it in plastic, put it in the box, put plastic inside, soak with ink, walk around, and just press it down, make a stamp and leave.

    A truly inspired idea! I'll be heading off to the local mall in about 20 minutes - lol!
