    It’s amazing! I just absolutely love it. It would be a neat piece inside the home too.

    Sorry about your first attempt, although it seems it would have worked if not for record highs this summer.

    Looks really great! Moss graffiti sounds great in theory, but playing with dirt was never my idea of fun, so I guess that’s a no for me. Sorry that it didn’t work out for you after all the effort! With dried moss, you might even keep one indoors. I could imagine it’ll look great with a christmasy decoration!

    Good for you for not giving up! Your final attempt looks gorgeous! (Years ago I ruined my blender making moss for a project that failed….double fail!)

    I share your thoughts from your first paragraph. I want to try this moss graffiti, but it sounds everyone just talks about it, noone is actually doing it. There are about 15 pictures circulating on the net altogether.
    So your post was a refreshment. although hearing about the failed attempt is not good :( Have you re-tried since? did it work this time?

    thanks!

    Your secret garden is to die for, especially since I live in Arizona & mine would be filled with cacti, hehe. Just a thought for anyone wishing to try the moss project. Seal your masonry/brick/stucco first. This way any moisture won’t be lost to the walls versus the moss.

    I love this, and am planning on trying it for a joint mothers’ – fathers’ day gift at my parents house. I emailed you with a question, but I thought I would post here too… just trying to ask someone who has done it and failed before I go do it for the first time.

    Thanks in advance, even if you get to me after I have started. I plan on spending more time on this site!!!

    Wow, this mirrors my experience with moss art exactly, except that I started on plywood. I think I’ll try once more to grow it but I’d that doesn’t work, I’ll definitely try your method- thanks!

    Hi, I’m thinking of doing up some moss art to hang in my bedroom and I’ve a few questions! Does it stink when the moss is fully grown? Also, does it attract any pests?

    I live in Singapore and we have crazy high humidity all year long so I think growing the moss would be easy; it’s just the maintenance after that that worries me.

    Thanks!

    Great stuff! Your work is amazing! What advice might you have for installing something like this indoors? I would like to do something on an interior wall, but because I don’t want to damage the wall I’m trying to find a medium on which to mount the moss. Do you think a cork board might work, for example? Thanks!

    Thank you so kindly for your tutorial! For the longest time I’ve been looking for inspiration for piece of art to go over the box that will hold out outdoor tv cabinet on the patio. This is it! I cannot wait to get this project started. I will send you my final result. Thanks again!

    I go to Purdue University, and my group in the Honors College is doing a moss graffiti project. I was wondering, when you were figuring out how much gel you needed, what did you go off of?
