anti graffiti spray paint

binary reaction between paint component and coating on surface impedes curing
  (+3, -4)
(+3, -4)
  [vote for,

use of an non active additive to spray paint that when comes into contact with a treated surface will prevent curing of the paint, or at least significantly impede curing rate

treated surface will ideally contain a catalyst

       err "step right up potential graffiti artists and buy this particular brand of paint" ?   

       Or do you want to hobble the entire industry because .001 pct of their product gets used in an annoying fashion ?

       Is it just me, or are we going through a period where as soon as you read the idea, you need to click on the poster's username and see what kind of history you're dealing with ? Nothing personal, just a question.

       I think it's just you. The idea has merit only if the surface reacts with common paint.

       norm, I think its always been like that!

       I check [usernames] now and then, unless I'm familiar with their work. (yes [normzone] just an answer)

       Already baked for several years. Rustoleum, Krylon, DuPont, and Sherwin-Williams all market grafitti-resistant paints that work remarkably well. I keep five rattlecans (different shades of grey) of the Rustoleum and Krylon stuff in my Jeep to cover up tags I find on rocky outcroppings in and around my valley. I use the different shades to color-match and create mottled textures (which is only possible when the paint is wet, because the Rustoleum kind won't even adhere to _itself_ once dry). Unfortunately, they don't come in matte-finish, but I'd rather see a blotch of satin-sheen grey on a rock than some ugly neon scrawl. A number of people in the community agree with me, including the County Sherrif, who once stopped to gig me for vandalism until I explained what I was up to, at which point he thought it over and gave me his blessing. I think someone else is doing it now, too, because I've seen a couple of spots I don't remember hitting. I've never tried the clear G-Coat; it's high-gloss, expensive, available only by direct order, and I don't think it's available in rattlecans.
