Best for long-distance graffiti

Very unconventional to post about practical shit on this site but hey that's just gonna help avoiding more Emilian Texwalls... maybe?

So what is to you the best -and hopefully cheap- kind of paint or paint mixture you'd be using for high-pressure graffiti ops, like the fire extinguisher trick?

I need something that's gonna last for a while and is waterproof, at least a few weeks if not erased by employees.

Depends on the surface

Depends on the surface receiving the tag? I've heard about mixing solvents (to etch) and/or thickening agents (to make a sort of paint/cement) but the added detail of firing the paint over a long distance is a lot of variables.

Have to recommend practical experimentation in a quiet back alley or parking lot. Add friends and your favourite substances for enhancing the sense of hoodlum camaraderie!

It's fun to be a sketchbag

Well thanks but sorry I just

Well thanks but sorry I just have the stuff, not the friends. The ones I had... they suck, in both meanings of the word, but eh that's a long story. So I guess an unhealthy slight dose of madness can motivate me to do it...

I also meant "relatively long range". Like a high-standing billboard by the highway, to be more precise. Lame to do, yet a lot of symbolic impact. Little to no feedback. No potential rad-points to get in my impoverished milieu of do-nothings who all most certainly hate me by now. Save the world where nobody cares kinda stuff, ya know. But did I told ya that the world is wrong, and I am right? Binaries I knows.

They call me brave, but NOOO, I'm just insane. X-D

I might not have properly

I might not have properly explained myself... the goal is to be making the paint thin enough to spay it at a somewhat long range with a high-pressure fire extinguisher, by keeping it resistant enough. I'm interested in the proper mixes to use with enamel or epoxide (floor) paint. I was thinking of acetone, but I wouldn't want the thinner to dissolve the paint to a point it becomes useless. But anyways I can make a few tests.

what's our problem with religious-cult ideology, again? besides the idolatry, hierarchy and "murder", of course...

Rly don’t mean to condescend

Rly don’t mean to condescend but as someone who’s ‘been there’ maybe give yourself a little time to chill out from your friend/comrade drama before going and doing some crazy illegal shit? Just saying

A little projecting much?

Rly you appear to be making some assumptions about an insurgent who's just seeking for better tricks for a specific form of vandalism. Or pehaps you got suggestions on how to better "chill out from your friend/comrade drama"?

It’s more the fact that they

It’s more the fact that they brought it up repeatedly for no apparent reason? Sometimes when people do shit like that there’s a reason. That’s all

but like what if the concept

but like what if the concept of reason is the problem whereby our perceived world-situation is managed by materialist rationale ?
and sometimes people do crazy shit for no apparent reason! just because X-D
Rly tho be mindful of the mineral spirits around those inspirers of digital manipulation for any size character typing ...
