thanks everyone for the suggestions. we ended up buying sealz old based primer. it seems to be covering really well. it said right on the can that it covers graffiti. it is only taking about 2 or 3 coats.

Get some paint thinner and paint the walls  with it? Acetone (nail polish remover) works great on metal miniatures. . .

paint thinner wouldn't cover or get rid of the graffiti..it would just make the colors run together creating a very ugly brown color...and i'm not sure what metal miniatures have to do with anything Huh

You could always wallpaper. Or paint a design on the wall that works with the grafitti.

Did he look at the place before he rented/bought?? If so, shouldn't the landlord be painting over the grafitti or at least paying for the paint?

wallpaper it too expensive and we would still need to prime the walls because the graffiti would show through..its that bold.

as for designing around the graffiti...it litterally has the most obsene sayings and body parts painted all over. i don't think it's something anyone could live with.

and the landlord is paying for the paint...my brother is getting his first two months free for actually doing the painting.

My brother just got his first place for really cheap and we just figured out why. The walls are completely covered in graffiti. It looks like he's living under a birdge.

Does anyone know an effective way of covering graffiti or maybe of a very thick paint or primer?

We tried normal primer and that did nothing. After three coats, we can still see every detail.

We are officially stumped. Please help.

How about, who has an apple eating contest? preg_replace('/(.{19})/', '$1 ', 'iIdunno..............') Huh

vegans who can't find very much to eat so they rely on apples.

Most of the stenciling I do is on canvas. Try acrylic paint and for a vintage look try an antiquing gloss or medium....and to make sure it doesn't bleed, use contact paper. It takes a long time to peel your stencil out but it's worth it. Make sure you press it down hard onto the canvas to make sure there are no air bubbles.

okay, this is a goofy pun but how about something like 'hardcore' you know, for apple cores?

I definately thought of that. I was thinking something along the lines of " Hard to the core" then a picture of an eaten apple. But now since there was a tie, I kind of want a tshirt that says something about the tie.
