This form of graffiti is not only visually appealing but it can also be soft and smooth to touch. It replaces toxic chemicals like spray paint, paint-markers, and doesn’t use any aerosols so it’s not harmful to our environment at all. Truly eco-friendly and perfect for garden designs!

Read on and learn the brilliant recipe on making your very own moss graffiti. It’s fun, exciting, and the output is gratifying! So choose a spot on your backyard, decorate your garden, and get ready for the coolest DIY project on street art!

Step 1

Get ready and prepare all the materials you’ll need.

Step 2

You can use 2 cups of buttermilk or 2 cups of PLAIN yogurt for this cool DIY project.

Step 3

Break the moss into manageable pieces and then place them in the blender.

Step 4

Blend until it is completely smooth. You’ll want it to have a paint-like texture.Here’s a TIP: If the consistency is where you feel that it will drip, just add corn syrup until the consistency you want is reached.

Remember to whizz around but don’t liquefy – the moss cells must stay intact.

Let the painting begin!

Step 5

Choose the right spot or area for moss-painting and street art. Be careful! Vandalism is a crime.

Step 6

You can add more moss paint on top of your painted ones to ensure thick growth of the moss. You may want to check your moss paint regularly. Depending on your climate, sometime it takes a while before your moss grow.


With few patience, you now have your very own moss graffiti masterpiece! Welcome to the beautiful world of green graffiti!

TIP: Too much sun can dry it out.

  1. Maybe I overlooked it, but I didn’t see the amount for the buttermilk. I have a couple areas in my yard that would really benefit from this. thanks!

    • Hello Trudy! You can use 2 cups of buttermilk or 2 cups of yogurt (should be PLAIN yogurt) for this project. Keep us posted! Thanks heaps 🙂

  2. Hi. Ive made this up but can’t seem to thicken it,Ive used half a jar of corn syrup already and it doesnt seem to be helping, can I use corn starch instead I dont want to ruin it by mixing too much?

    • Hello Debbie! We do not recommend using corn starch since it has different properties from corn syrup. Don’t worry about making it too thick. Your moss graffiti will still be awesome, for sure! Let us know how it went, ok? Have fun!
