To be honest I didn't know exactly where to post this!

I am planning on building a few tombstones this year and wanted to get a sample of real moss and lichen to look at when painting.... I found a tree at work that is covered in green moss and lichen! So here are a couple of pictures, some green moss and some grayish colored lichen. I hope these can be of help to the tombstone painters out there that are going for a realistic look to moss and lichen.

Thanks for posting these. I was planning a trip to the cemetery to get a few close-ups and you've saved me the work! :D
Glad I could help! Are you painting a tombstone? I'd love to see the finished project!

Still in the planning process. I have a few store bought ones I want to repaint and will be making a few new ones too. I'm hoping to achieve an authentic look for my cemetery next year. :)
