I need guidance on what sort of graffiti markers/paint I want to write words on an outdoor garage wall. Details within.
Okay so I have this hideously ugly garage that is going to have to be knocked down in a couple years if some highly-targeted natural disaster doesn't take it first (cross your fingers). One side of my garden (where we entertain constantly) is dominated by this huge, blank, ugly garage wall. I've decided to write a quote on the wall ("Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom." -Proust
) and then have friends and family who visit us sign the wall, which will make it visually more interesting and not quite such an unbroken expanse of ugly, but is inexpensive and easy and won't be the end of the world when we get rid of the garage in a couple years.
*Garage is wooden and painted with brick-red paint, peeling in a few places
*Do not care to repaint/repair the paint on the garage
*Prefer pen/marker style to a brush or spraycan
*Prefer little to no dripping
*Will use primarily black ink/paint
*Will be used by non-arty adults and children who visit
*Would like to be able to uncap and recap over a period of months with minimal maintenance, so visitors at different times can all sign
*Would like it to last somewhat, but the garage is only going to be around a couple more years so it doesn't have to be super-permanent
*Some fading/weathering is fine and will look okay in the garden
*Willing to spend a little more for ease-of-use rather than screwing around mixing my own paint or whatever
I have looked at some graffiti supply stores (such as Art Primo
) but I cannot even understand what half the words mean, so I need guidance from someone much artier than I am! I can buy from the typical big-box stores locally (Home Depot, Michael's, etc.) or am happy to order online.
