Many of us have made going green a major priority for the health of our environment. For that reason it is always good to find environmentally friendly ways of doing things.
If you have a memorial garden and want to decorate it with green products, then you should consider making your own moss paint. You heard that right, you can paint with moss.
What is Moss Graffiti?
By mixing moss and a few other ingredients, you can create a thick paste that will adhere to the surface you want to decorate. Over the course of time, the moss will grow and bush out. It makes for beautiful artwork in a garden.
What Should You Use Moss Graffiti On?
The great thing about this paint is that you can put it on brick walls, monuments, memorial stones, trees, or whatever you would like. This makes for a unique way of honouring a loved one in a memorial garden.
We sell beautiful lava stone here at Phoenix Memorial Garden. If you are not sure what to do with the stone, you can use this DIY moss paint to cover the stone with moss designs. Beautifying your memorial stone is a wonderful way of calling attention to the memory of your loved one.
How To Make The Paint
First, you will need to gather your supplies. You will need moss, a baby diaper or water gel, buttermilk, and water. These ingredients will be placed in a blender during part of the process, so you will need access to a blender or a food processor.
