I did a similar uniform on this cake.... http://www.joyandcakenj.com/yahoo_site_admin/assets/images/IMG_20120210_121036.42183746_large.jpg

I airbrushed some splotches of the green. Then I rubbed some splotches of cocoa powder. then I rubbed some white food coloring on with a paper towel. Just layers and layers of color until I got the look I wanted. The whole thing was done on tan colored fondant.

Good luck!
