just in case you’re feeling a little environmentally friendly and do not wish to choke the little birdies with your Montana Gold or shitty Krylon.
what you will need:
One or two clumps (small handfull) of moss.
2 cups of buttermilk. (you can substitute with yogurt/vegan yogurt can be used)
2 cups of water (or beer)
1/2 tsp. sugar.
Corn syrup. (optional)
Gather up as much moss as you can find or buy.
Wash the moss to get as much soil out of the roots as possible.
Break moss apart into manageable pieces and place in a blender.
Add the buttermilk/yogurt, water/beer and sugar. Blend the mixture until completely smooth. You’ll want it to have a paint-like texture. (If the mixture is at a consistency where you feel it will drip, add corn syrup until the consistency you desire is reached)
Use a paintbrush to apply the moss-paint to the surface on which you wish your design to grow.
**If possible, check back weekly to either spray the design with water (to encourage moss growth, especially if you live in a dry environment) or apply more moss-paint
