People Should Be Against To Graffiti

by marbla

In urban areas, people have seen graffiti as a problem for decades.

However, it has been spreading far beyond the limits of cities. Aerosol spray cans are used by taggers in order that their marks will be on anything that doesn’t move permanently, or at least stays still long enough. As a result, they cost an impressive £200 million cleaning bill which is paid in the form of county taxes by you.



The manufacturers of markers and paints haven’t helped the matter much, either, though it’s only a side effect of them giving us what we want. When you apply a coat of paint to that porch chair, for example, you want a reasonable assurance that you won’t need to repaint it next month. Paint manufacturers put billions into researching ways to make their paints adhere to surfaces better and last longer. The end result – paints that will stay on your patio deck for decades. Unfortunately, those same paints are near to impossible to remove when they’re used to brand an innocuous business front with some tagger’s logo.


The solution being used by more and more municipal councils and private businesses is the application of anti graffiti finishes on any surface that is likely to collect signatures and the other expected drivel. Anti graffiti finishes come in several different types and offer differing levels of protection. While they don’t prevent graffitists from making their marks, they do ease the difficulty of cleanup – and if you’ve every been faced with a scrawled epithet on a white-washed wall, you know how important that can be.


Sacrificial anti graffiti coatings

One method of easing the removal of graffiti is the application of a coating of wax or acrylic that protects the surface beneath it. Anti graffiti wax is the least expensive short term solution, and may be suitable for a surface that isn’t likely to be targeted. Once the wax has been graffitied, the wax and graffiti are removed together by melting the wax, often with a stream of hot water. The drawback, of course, is that the sacrificial anti graffiti coatings are one use only. Once you’ve removed the graffiti, you need to reapply the wax to restore the protection.


Semi permanent anti graffiti coatings

A step up from the sacrificial coatings are semi permanent anti graffiti coatings. These are often based on polymers, polyesters, acrylics or epoxy and can be applied in multiple layers. While the graffiti agent – marker, paint or whatever – adheres to the coating, it doesn’t adhere to the wall or surface beneath it, and can be removed. Most often, removal will require the use of some chemical cleaner, and eventually, sometimes after only one or two cleanings, the anti graffiti barrier will have worn away, exposing the underneath surface.


Permanent anti graffiti coatings

Generally the most expensive up front of the anti graffiti measures, permanent anti graffiti coatings are likely to save money over the long run. The coatings are similar to those used in non-stick pans. They offer nothing for the paint or markers to adhere to, making it easy to simply whisk graffiti away with nothing more than soap and water.


In addition to anti graffiti coatings, many providers of industrial cleaners supply powerful anti graffiti cleaners which are meant to remove the spray paint or marker while causing as little damage to the underlying wall as possible. For buildings and areas that are less tempting targets, this solution is sometimes quite enough.

Graffiti Removal – Anti Graffiti Tips & Techniques

Before beginning to remove any graffiti, you need to first identify what kind of material has been marked by the graffiti. Stone, brick, concrete, glass, aluminum, street signs, and bus stops are just a few of the materials and places where you can find graffiti.

These surfaces can be smooth or textured. Some are painted, while others are not. All of these factors are important to be taken into account before you can decide what process to use to remove the graffiti. Most graffiti is applied using spray paint, but some artists use markers, stickers, or other means in order to mark their material. Each material and graffiti process requires a certain means of removal, which varies depending on the combination of both factors.

Except for paint, graffiti removal materials cannot be found in hardware stores or other shops. They must be ordered from specialty suppliers and often are only sold in bulk to cities and professional graffiti-removal services. However, if the graffiti that needs to be removed is paint, you can find these supplies at local retail stores; however they are likely to be specific for small projects. One method of removing graffiti is by painting over it.

This is an easy, usually inexpensive way to remove graffiti. Simply paint over the area marked with graffiti in smooth, even strokes, and you’re good to go. This method is also safer than using chemical solvents to remove graffiti. If you do decide to use chemicals, there is a variety to choose from, and it’s important to match up the chemical you want with the surface you are using it on.

If you don’t use the right chemicals, you could ruin the material you are cleaning up. If the job is a small cleanup (off a light pole, for instance), apply the necessary chemicals using a cloth or a rag.

Larger jobs require more dangerous chemicals and often should be handled by a professional. The final method that can be used to remove graffiti is pressure washing. Pressure cleaners spray out water at high pressures and will clean off paint in a good amount of time. You can also use water/solvent mixtures, baking soda, or sand to blast away the graffiti paint. The downside to this technique is that it could wear away the material being cleaned.

Once you have cleaned off the graffiti, all you have to do is apply a protective coating to the surface that was cleaned and you’re good to go. While simple graffiti jobs can be cleaned off personally, it would be wise to hire a professional company to clean off larger amounts of graffiti, since they’re techniques are safer for the surface being cleaned and they may have access to better materials.

The collection is inspired by the marquees, racing colours and blazers found at British sporting events and festivals. The 12 designs in the collection, in a total of 56 crisp and modern colour ways, work well in both contemporary and classis settings setting.

Sanderson also kept to the classis English theme with its new Richmond Hill wallpaper portfolio featuring 8 designs including paisleys, stripes and damasks.

This included Fresco Birds, which creates an effect of a beaten up plaster wall complete with paint marks , old nails and graffiti-style scratches which is softened by decaying grey swallows flitting across the paper. Also new for 2012 is Honey Bees, a geometric honeycomb pattern interspersed with bees, created using the traditional surface print technique for a hand-stamped finish.

Jenne Rayburn Showcases Couture Handbags and Designer Silk Scarves at the SoWa Open Market October 28th, 2012

Boston, MA (PRWEB) October 19, 2012

Jenne Rayburn Handcrafted Jewelry and Wearable Art, a Boston based designer, presents her textile and handbag collection, Manu, at the SoWa Open Market on October 28th, 2012. Featuring a costume contest, pumpkin carving and live music, this is the last SoWa Open Market of the 2012 season. The SoWa Open Market is held Sundays from May through October, 10 a.m.4 p.m., at 460 Harrison Avenue. One of Bostons hippest neighborhoods, The South End has been touted as the best outdoor shopping in Boston. At SoWa Open Market you can buy top-notch items from local artisans, making everything from couture fashion and leather accessories to jewelry, glass, and custom framed art.

Standing apart from other fine handbag and scarf designers, Jenne Rayburn combines a treasury of antique textiles and her love of stylish handbags to craft a unique selection of wearable art using her carefully curated collection of fabrics and notions. Hand-selecting unique materials with distinctive details or that have an elegant flair; these beguiling finds are then playfully combined with sometimes unexpected colors and textures to create unique, timeless designs often with surprise and whimsy. One might find a Vintage kimono silk with a bold Lucite button, or a colorful ethnic fabric with an antique bronze buckle. Each design is meticulously handcrafted with care in the designer’s Malden, MA studio. With attention to detail, richness and depth, the Manu Collection offers elegant handbags, scarves and belts with sophisticated color, pattern and texture.

Always on the hunt for rare or out of production vintage textiles and findings, and unique ethnic specialty fabrics, the collection includes silk, local wool, organic cotton, and leather. Several of the fabrics have been hand-dyed or graffiti printed in the studio, a technique Rayburn observed while traveling in Japan and further studied after returning home. “I am passionately curious about other cultures, their identities and design traditions,” notes Rayburn. “I travel all over the world hunting for materials, sketching and photographing, and everything I discover and experience is incorporated into my design process.” Utilizing antique buttons, vintage Lucite handles and elegant trims, these thoughtfully designed fashionable accessories stand apart from the mainstream. With great care taken with the construction and design of each handbag, from the quality of the vintage fabrics and designer leathers to the hardware, clasps and interior lining, the attention to detail in the design and the superior level of quality is something that most production handbags cannot offer.

Known as the place to view and buy the very best in local crafts, at the SoWa Open Market locals and visitors alike can enjoy a shopping experience like no other in Boston. Showcasing an ever-changing group of local and regional artisans not usually represented at local craft fairs and festivals, you will meet the artists, designers, chefs and farmers behind the work. Venders pitch their tents in the parking lot between Harrison Avenue and Albany Street. Several food trucks also serve the market, and a separate farmers market sells seasonal produce. The SoWa Vintage market is next door where a carefully curated selection of antiques and collectibles are available. Each week offers shoppers something different and unique including original art of all mediums, gourmet food trucks, indie designer clothing and accessories, ceramics, glass, photography, jewelry, handbags, house wares, baked goods, local farmers produce you wont want to miss it!

SoWa Vintage and Open Markets are at 460 Harrison Ave., Boston, 800-403-8305

Sundays, 10 a.m.4 p.m.

I am pleased to be invited to participate in Girl Show Dallas with the Air Graffiti Virtual Wall, said Dennis Walthers, owner of Air Graffiti Dallas.
