Currently, graffiti is a growing phenomenon across the nation. We are testing appropriate methods for graffiti removal. We hope to discover the best method or combination of methods to remove graffiti from various masonry surfaces while causing the least amount of damage.

The Experiment 
Creating the samples of marble, red brick and beigebrick: the samples are cut and cored, then labeled.Artificially weathering thesamples: half of the samples areplaced into holders created forthe weather exposure chamber.Painting the samplesLaser: an instrument using radiation toamplify light.Removing the paint Poultice: a soft, damp clay,paper, or wood massapplied to the surface.
