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

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?

I used tinner and soldiring gun to melt it.BUt many ppl are using hair dryers too.That goldish colour is a kind of pool cement.Thank you all for nice comments
