Moss Graffiti


I found this recipe for Moss Graffiti on Instructables

In a blender combine: 
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
A few handfuls of moss
1 teaspoon of sugar

Blend until smooth enough to paint (mixture will be thick).

Paint on a porous wall (such as brick or concrete) and mist with water daily until it grows.
Paint freehand or use a stencil and tape if you want it precise.

I am so excited to try this out!

    1. I'm guessing a 4-6 weeks. But growth will depend on many factors: your location, sun exposure, temperature, humidity etc. Most moss (besides tropical moss like Spanish moss) will grow better in cool shaded areas. Water daily and do some research a particular moss that grow well in your area. Good luck :)
