Although it’s possible, this paint would probably be too funky to have indoors. However, it would be amazing to have, and a super fun project to do, outdoors. Theboredninja.com shows you step-by-step instructions on how to create moss graffiti. When applied to a wall, it displays a true freedom of speech, and as one commentator put it, a great “green advertisement.”

Reverse Graffiti:

Let’s face it: Dirt happens. That is why you can come clean AND make art at the same time by applying your own customized artwork via Reverse Graffiti. By using a bleaching agent and scrubbing out your drawing, you can essentially create clean artwork. Just like a graffiti artist uses spray paint, you can use a pressure washer as a method of application to achieve this reverse effect.

Geometric Wall:
