An anti-grafitti clearcoat for almost all surfaces. [Alterother, Oct 27 2011]
|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!

|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.
