Painting Over Graffiti

Free paint is available at Hennepin County Free Product Centers.  When graffiti is on a painted surface, the best course of action is to cover it with paint.

Graffiti abatement and weather guidelines:

Graffiti abatement is more successful in weather that is relatively dry.  Rain, snow, and high-humidity can cause paint to dry uneven or hinder the paint over process. 

Acrylic Paint

32 Degrees or warmer

Enamel Paint

22 degrees or warmer

Latex Paint

50 Degrees or warmer *

*Some paint providers sell an additive that allows for painting in temperatures of 32 degrees or less.
