Instructions:

  1. Begin by blending the moss sheets or loose moss with natural yogurt or buttermilk and a small amount of water in a blender or food processor until it becomes a smooth paste. Use protective gloves when handling the moss to avoid skin irritation.
  2. Select a suitable surface for mounting your moss wall art graffiti, such as plywood. Use heavy-duty staples or a staple gun to attach the plywood to a wall or other vertical surface.
  3. Use masking tape or stencils to create a design or pattern for your moss wall art graffiti. Apply the moss paste to the surface using a paintbrush or spray bottle, being careful not to apply too much or too little.
  4. Once the design is complete, leave the moss wall art to dry for several days in a well-lit area away from direct sunlight and heat sources. You may need to mist it with water occasionally to keep the moss moist.
  5. Once the moss has fully dried, mount the finished piece on a suitable surface using heavy-duty staples or a staple gun. Ensure that it is securely fastened to the wall.

Putting moss wall art graffiti directly on a brick wall requires a few additional steps, but it is still a straightforward process. First, you will need to clean the brick surface to remove any dirt or debris. Then, using a spray bottle or paintbrush, apply a layer of buttermilk or natural yogurt to the brick surface. Next, apply a layer of blended moss to the surface and use a plastic wrap to cover the area for several days to ensure the moss adheres to the wall. Once the moss has fully grown, remove the plastic wrap and mist the area regularly to keep the moss moist. With a little patience and care, you can create a stunning piece of moss wall art graffiti directly on a brick wall.
