It may be tempting for us all to get carried away with how cold and damp and dreary the winter months are. But there’s hope around the corner. Every day brings us closer to the season of spring. A time for warmer climes, greenery and a few more plants cropping up. Winter’s no good for those who like the color green, that’s for sure. So when March gets here, why not get green fingered and try this awesome idea… moss graffiti?! It’s exactly what it sounds like. How good, huh? Let’s find out how it’s made…
First of all, you’re going to need to track down the following ingredients:
1. A small handful of moss
2. 2 cups of buttermilk or yogurt
3. 2 cups of water
4. 1/2 teaspoon sugar
5. Some corn syrup
You can find the moss on walls, the ground, trees or failing that, a local garden store.
Try and remove as much of the mud and soil as you can before putting it into a blender.
Then add the buttermilk or plain yoghurt, water and sugar.
Don’t forget a few splashes of corn syrup to thicken up the mixture.
Now blend! Only to whizz up the ingredients. Don’t overblend – you want the moss to mostly stay intact and not entirely liquefy.
Once it’s in a bucket and you’ve got yourself a paintbrush, you’re ready to graffiti!
Get painting! Give it time to grow and feel free to water the area lightly to encourage moss growth.
See what happens…? Brilliant!
Once you get the hang of it you can really get creative!
It doesn’t have to be lettering or messages…
But it sure can be! What a neat little idea this is.
