DIY:  MOSS GRAFFITI
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.
One or two clumps (about a small handful) of moss
2 cups ofbuttermilk
You can also substitute withyogurt(vegan yogurt can be used)

2 cups of water (or beer)
1/2 tsp. sugar
Corn syrup (optional)
_______________
Apply your paint in a moist area that receives a moderate amount of sunlight.
Moss grows best on porous surfaces such as bricks or other stones.
The best times to plant your graffiti are in the spring or fall, and keeping the moss moist will encourage its growth.
If for any reason you wish to get rid of the design or parts of the design, spray it with lime juice as this will kill the moss.
