Today we are going to learn two ways of doing “eco-graffiti” – a technique that became popular after the release of artist Anna Garforth’s work. With few materials and in a simple way, all the walls of our cities can be dyed green.

Very important: the foam it is essential for ecosystems. The “the foam“These are plants that absorb water and many other minerals that serve as food and do so throughout the plant body, so they are great collectors of water and reserves that are gradually released in forests and The Landes. Do not pick the wild moss, keep in mind that it will take 7 years to regrow.

You can get the moss for our graffiti in cities, in areas where it won’t thrive. You can also buy it at garden stores, a variety grown by humans.

There are a few differences between the two eco-graffiti recipes. Here you will learn how to prepare them.

Recipe Zupi Mag.

The materials we will need are:

  • 3 foam handles.
  • 700 ml of lukewarm water.
  • 2 tablespoons of hydro-retention gel (you can use homemade hydrogel).
  • 1 tablespoon of white vinegar or lemon juice.
  • 1 cup of milk.


The foam should be shredded and rinsed with water. Then add the water-retaining gel for the sowing. In another bowl, mix the lemon juice or vinegar with the milk. Let the mixture sit for 10 minutes.

After this time, combine all the ingredients and mix them in the blender until we get the consistency of porridge. Once done, you can just put it in a bucket and use it on any rough surface. To store, moisten weekly.

Recipe 2.

The ingredients we are going to use are:

  • 5 handfuls of clean foam.
  • 1 can of beer.
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar
  • 1/2 cup of plain yogurt.

Combine all ingredients and blend in a blender until creamy. Then transfer it to a container. To store, moisten with water and lawn fertilizer.

Replace other toxic paints with a “green” graffiti spray. Here is the interesting work of Anna garforth, which stains old abandoned buildings green.
