Setting up a jungle

Hi all,this is my first topic and wanna start with my new paludarium.I am living in thailand and i am lucky about to find items from nature and wanted try a create a jungle in my room.i and 1 of my friend had some trips for this also.And finaly i decide to start with PU foam to make to background.







After the carving the foam i use cement to cover it.And painting job :D




And at the some parts i use silicon and sticked dried coconut powder for naturel looking.







For tonight thats all coz its late here.But other details and pictures ll load tomorrow.bye 4 now :D

Lovely. I eventually want to do a viv like that.

To do that melting thing in the early stages (when the foam goes from white to gold-ish/brown), did you use a blow/hair-dryer?
