The term “urban jungle” gets tossed a lot, however it can take a literary connotation when you think of beautiful moss graffiti. 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.
Moss paint is a lot more eco-friendly than the toxic chemicals used in spray paint, and succeed in bringing a piece of nature and life to inanimate walls and ceilings. Besides, you don’t even need to be an environmental person to appreciate these works of art.
Not only is it less harmful for the environment, moss paint is incredibly easy to make. You just need a few handful of moss clumps, some buttermilk or yogurt, water (beer is preferred), have a tea spoon of sugar and if you’re really feeling artsy, add some corn syrup to the mix too. Mix these all up in a blender until you reach a paint-like consistency and voila!
Amazingly enough, moss makes for a great decorating element as well.
