    answer my two questoins please
    can you wipe it off easily?
    like with your hand
    or does it take some scraping or what
    will it fade from its original color?
    say i use a black one will it fade to brown or another color in a few weeks?

    Sometimes they will fade if there in a spot with direct sunlight and rain. They cant be completely wiped off easily, but people can definatly fuck them up if they wanted to by rubbing them with a cloth or something really hard depenting on what surface there on such as a smooth mailbox side, on wood there pretty permanent tho. i have black tags that i did on wood over a year ago that are still up. ive seen them 12 for 1$ at dollar stores, you can also find them for free from your art class at school useally. something else thats good about them is if they get painted over you can still see them showing through the paint like a ghost tag. the thing about them is there a little hard to get used to at first, but just remmeber dont press too hard, ive done it and the tags still there and its an embarassment. if you want a streak that will stay up for a long fucking time get something like a sakura, but there like 5$ for one

    pastels are good because after it rains the oil washes away and it is permanent after that. just like a streak

    I beg to differ, i have one year old pastel tags that have gone through rain, hail and snow, pastels are dope. Just make sure you get the good ones, the artist ones, not the cheap shitty dollar store ones, those are one step above wax crayons.

    I used to only tag with pastels...oh fuck theyre still up and terrible.
    There is this brand...apperantly 'B&B' Oil Pastels,you can find them in many schools in TDSB if you live in the gta atleast.
    Some of them faded,some of them stayed depending on the surface.Canada Post glossed grey mailboxes hold unto pastel fairly well,but dumbasses try to buff it with SCOURING BRUSH :p,and still there is a faint outline left.You could just scrub it off with a tissue.
