Introduction: Reverse, or "Clean" Graffiti Using Bleach
In this instructable, I will show you how to create clean graffiti, commonly called "reverse graffiti", using a rag and bleach! It's very, very simple, but not everyone knows about it.
I DID NOT invent this style of graffiti, just made it easier and put it into an instructable format. As far as I know a graffiti artist named "Moose" invented it [link], and i completely and utterly copied him. :P
If you do something stupid, like write on someone's car with this method, DO NOT BLAME ME. I know there's always these stupid disclaimers, but really, how would you like it if someone wrote on your house or car with bleach?
Anyways, I don't believe this to be illegal, as long as you keep it on cement or concrete, but if you do it on something (Like wood) it might be, so keep it to the street guys. (Just because I don't think it's illegal doesn't mean it is, remember that) On wood, it seems to actually bleach the wood itself, so I think that someone could argue that you damaged their property.
Step 1: Gather Materials
You need to round up:
Bleach --the most important part, duh!
An old rag --don't use a new one, it's getting bleached guys!
A cup, or something to hold the bleach
Some nasty cement -- look for cement that seems to have black stuff on it (that works the best)
Gloves --believe me, my hand smelled like bleach for the rest of the day, no matter how many times I tried to wash it
If you want to use something else to write on the cement with the bleach, go for it, I just preffered using a rag, and I happened to have one laying around.
Step 2: Begin Writing!
Ok, now we've got all the stuff, so lets find some dirty cement and start writing on it!
This would be the time to put on those gloves, unless you like the smell of bleach for the rest of the day.
Pick a Design
Pour the bleach in the cup about half way full. (not half empty btw)
Dip the rag in the cup.
Paint the design with the rag.
Step 3: Let It Dry
Now let that design you painted Dry.
Check it out! You are now cleaning up some cement selectively! Now go selectively clean your design everywhere!
Step 4: Results
Now that we have cleaned up the cement selectively, let's see what we have done!
Now go spread whatever message you have chosen! ~Have Fun!
We have a be nice policy.
