FOLLOWUP: Bus-shelter mural restored

A couple nights ago, Kay told us about Brooke, working to restore a vandalized bus-shelter mural at 35th/Thistle. Today, Brooke sends an update:

Just wanted to share the (almost) final result. I need to let this dry and then touch up where it was gouged.

Pretty pleased with the progress and hopefully it inspires others in the community and if nothing else is a bit of good news. I had no idea how much this mural meant to folks.

    Saw Brooke working out there today.  Tried to shout a “thank you” as I drove by,  but traffic was pretty heavy.

    Brooke…thank you, great job cleaning up the vandalized art. Did the  folks at the hardware store have any anti-graffiti clear coat to use as a final layer?Anything sprayed or painted on it will just bead up and run, which frustrates the vandals and is easier to remove when restoring the original, underlying graphic.

    So – what solvent worked the best? I know you tried multiple.

    Brooke if you read this can you let us know what solvent/cleaner and supplies you ended up using? This is a great community contribution, thank you so much.
