You know that show I'm doing with the graffiti covered wall?

Well, as part of the action of the play, a character spray paints a wall.

And then, after the show, our stage crew has to make that particular painting "go away." We would prefer to not have to paint over the wall after every show, rather, we would like to be able to scrub off the paint.

And we're painting on vacuu-form plastic fake cinderblocks, with lots and lots of graffiti already painted on it.

So, I wonder what you all can tell me about anti-graffiti sealers.











(My questions are never dull, are they?)

Golden's msa varnish is removable with mineral spirits. They recommend you use Soft Gel Gloss as an isolation coat first, though, which is, of course, glossy. You might ask Mike Townsend at Golden about whether it could be used with different glosses.

The other option you might consider is to see if you can find some matte clear frisket film over the area that will be sprayed every night. Then you could just pull it off and put on another one.

Good luck! You always have the most interesting projects!

I haven't used frisket in years. Can you suggest brand names, Sheri?

I never get bored, that's for sure!

Lisa,

This is the one that Iwata-Medea Distributes. I might have a sheet or two I can send you for a test if that helps. http://www.iwata-medea.com/products/artool/film.jsp

You might even get by with press & seal if it's not too glossy or a sign shop might have a cling vinyl that's matte. They are held up just by static cling.

i'd use MSA if i was also worried about UV protections and so forth, but i find it too glossy [and not to mention expensive] in general- and the lower sheen product can take a week or more to flatten out.

several companies make a two layer anti graffitti varnish-
the top coat comes off taking the grafitti with it, the isolation coat underneath is permanent.

good discussions here:

http://www.bikemural.org/muralprotection.html#WeChose

specifically:
"Graffiti Control Services of San Bruno (650) 355-5016 sells two-part, water-based acrylic Graffiti Defenz Sheercoat.

Precita Eyes Mural Arts Center (415)-285-2287 sells jars of the Sheercoat, They are a convenient place to get the (always expensive) Cleverclean solvent for removing graffiti once you have a varnished mural. "

Has anyone ever tried this stuff? "Car-Art" wash-off-able spray paint.

http://www.duplicolor.com/products/carart.html

Here's what their website says:

Quote:
Want to add flames to your car for the weekend. Or maybe you’re heading to a “big game” and want to show your support. Car Art Temporary Paint gives you the ability to apply vehicle graphics from an aerosol can. This is the newest and coolest way to add temporary paint to any car, truck or van. Plus Car Art Temporary Paint has many residential, commercial and recreational uses. Decorate home windows for the Holidays or spray lines on concrete or asphalt for sporting events. It dries in less than a minute, and it won’t wash off in the rain. Not to worry, it leaves no residue on the surface to which it’s applied. Cleaning up Car Art is a snap — just use soap, water and a sponge or power wash it off.
