    Growing Moss On Statues / Ideas Needed

    Picked up these 3 statues & thought it would be cool if I could get some moss or some kind of mossy looking green stuff growing on them



    They're made out of plaster or a plaster like material & it looks they were painted with that fleck stone stuff

    Anyone have any ideas or suggestions???

    Thanx

    You can mix moss with yoghurt or buttermilk in a blender and then spread it over the statues.
    exact recipes can be easily found on google.

    Sounds like it could have mold issues, but that's very interesting. I'll have to look this up.

    Cheap beer also apparently works too.

    Cool, it'll be like your own Ankor Wat!

    The beer + moss in a blender recipe did not work for me when I tried painting it on decorations inside a terrarium, it just grew cottony mold but outdoors in humid shady conditions it might be OK. I do have a bunch of naturally mossy bricks by my front door that I could ship you some moss from if you wanna pay shipping (if you're in the US that is). Not sure what the bricks are made of so the chemical composition might be far different than the statues but it will be used to growing on stonework.
