How to Make Moss Graffiti

ORIGINAL: WikiHow
Edited byTeresa and 19 others


Moss graffiti, also called eco-graffiti or green graffiti, replaces spray paint, paint-markers or other such toxic chemicals and paints with a paintbrush and a moss "paint" that can grow on its own. As people become more eco-friendly and environmentally aware, the idea of making living, breathing graffiti has become a more green and creative outlet for graffiti artists. It can also be considered another form of guerrilla gardening.

Ingredients
  • One or two clumps (about a small handful) of moss
  • 2 cups of buttermilk
  • You can also substitute with yogurt (vegan yogurt can be used)
  • 2 cups of water (or beer)
  • 1/2 tsp. sugar
  • Corn syrup (optional)
Steps
1 Gather up as much moss as you can find or buy.
2 Wash the moss to get as much soil out of the roots as possible.

3 Break the moss apart into manageable pieces and place in blender.Break the moss apart into manageable pieces and place in blender.

5 Use a paintbrush to apply the moss-paint to the surface on which you wish your design to grow.

6 If possible, check back weekly to either spray the design with water (to encourage moss growth, especially if you live in a dry environment) or apply more moss-paint.
