I’ve always found the way that graffiti polarises people kind of fascinating. Art vs.vandalism? Tagging vs. art? Public property vs. Jim Smith’s front fence?
I’m personally of the opinion that tagging is crap but a bit of illegal spray paint can add real character and vibrancy to a neighbourhood. Which is lucky, given the area I live in is full of street art.
But I honestly don’t think anyone could complain about this gorgeous moss graffiti I’ve found around the web though. It’s eco-friendly, beautiful, and removable (if you’re a soul-less jerk). I’m planning to give it a try sometime soon. It’s apparently a little tricky to make it work – you will need exactly the right conditions in terms of temperature, sunlight and water, but all that is required is:
- Several clumps of moss
- 1 pot of natural yoghurt or 12oz buttermilk (experiment to see which works best)
- 1/2 teaspoon of sugar
- Plastic pot (with a lid)
- Paint brush
