From Anna's about me:
I feel the best place for some of my creations is in the public eye. I aim for my work to spark intrigue and questioning as it melds into our transitory daily landscape. My work needs to make an immediate impact given its ephemeral nature. I don't wish to preserve it, it lives, it dies, and new growth ensues.
(Moss Graffiti Recipe after the jump!)
One or two clumps (about a small handful) of moss
2 cups of buttermilk
You can also substitute with yogurt (vegan yogurt can be used)
2 cups of water (or beer)
1/2 tsp. sugar
Corn syrup (optional)
1) Gather up as much moss as you can find or buy.
2) Wash the moss to get as much soil out of the roots as possible.
3) Break the moss apart into manageable pieces and place in blender.
4) 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.
5) Use a paintbrush to apply the moss-paint to the surface on which you wish your design to grow.
6) 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.
