Moss Grafitti also known as Green Graffiti or Eco-Graffiti , replaces spray paint, paint-markers or other toxic chemicals and paints with a paintbrush and a “Moss Paint” that can grow on its own. Check out this form of guerrilla gardening.
Moss: Natures carpet
What you need to get started:
-1 or 2 clumps of moss
-2 cups of water
-2 cups of buttermilk
*You can also substitute the milk with yogurt (vegan yogurt can be used, but do not use flavored yogurt).
-1/2 tsp of sugar
-corn syrup (optional)
-1 container with a lid
Step 1: Gathering the moss. Where you gather the moss is important. The kind that grows on trees won’t necessarily do well on walls.
*Note if you cannot find moss on cement, pavement, damp bricks, etc where you live, the moss milk may not work in your climate.
Step 2: Clean the moss
Step 3: Break the moss apart.
Step 4: Making Moss Milk
Step 5: Pour Mixture (Moss Paint) into a bucket.
Step 6: Begin Your Green Creation.
Step 7: Check back weekly to spray the green creation with water or apply more moss-paint. (This will encourage moss growth, and especially help if you live in a dry environment)
*Get creative and post your moss creations on our Facebook page and/or your Instagram and use hash tag #growsomethinggreen
