Here's a simple recipe for live moss paint using easy-to-find ingredients. In a blender, mix 2 cups of live moss with 2 cups of live cultured buttermilk or plain yogurt. Make sure the moss is alive - from a nursery (not dried or dyed from a craft store), like this all-natural Terrarium Moss. Brush it onto an unglazed  flower pot: terra cotta, cement etc. Place in the shade & mist with water at least once per day. You will see it start to green up in no time, usually about a week to 10 days. This mossy milkshake can actually be painted on any porous surface, like an outdoor fountain or rock wall. It just needs to be kept moist, preferably in the shade to stay green and happy :) Like this project? Check out our other Green & Fabulous DIY projects.
