It was pretty simple, so here I am making an Instructable on it for any of you who wants to make a great outdoor project this Spring or Fall.
Make sure to leave a comment or a photo of your graffiti I really like everybody's feedback and read all your comments.
Step 1: Select a Space
Not only walls are good surfaces for the graffiti but any porous surface is best, well the moss will have a better surface to adhere to. I have also seen moss on bricks, plain soil and wood and it grows well.
Step 2: Gather Your Ingredients, Materials and Tools
- Moss. (About two big clumps in this recipe).
- Buttermilk. (Two cups for the recipe). This could be replaced with plain yogurt.
- Water. Not pictured. (From one to two cups for the recipe).
- Sugar. I used about half a teaspoon,
Note. To make homemade buttermilk like I did, you need vinegar and whole milk, add one tablespoon of vinegar to a cup and fill the rest with milk, let sit for 5 minutes and it's ready to be used.
Tools and Materials.
- Hard surface to cut on, I used MDF. Used later on the Template step.
- Cutting tools. Used later on the Template step.
- Containers. Used for mixing and keeping mixture during painting.
Step 3: Prepare Your Template
There are just a few basic steps for getting a template on to your wall.
- Print your stencil or silhouette on regular paper the quality doesn't really matter what matters is that you like it.
- Pass your picture on to bigger paper if you wish to, I did paper put for multiple uses acrylic could be a great option and a laser cutter you be really precise on the drawing and the cuts.
- Cut your picture out and you have your template now just tape it to the wall when painting.
Step 4: Prepare Your "Milkshake"
After blending transfer your milkshake to a container for the painting process.
Step 5: Paint and Wait... Patience Is a Virtue
All this process takes about a day, the long part is waiting for it to grow well moss is a slow grower, following all these simple steps you can have an eco-friendly artwork on your wall. If you make it make sure to leave a comment or any other type of feedback.
