    Somewhere on the forum there was a thread on how to make face rock and bolders out of styrofoam. Can anyone direct me?

    MasonJar It's not rocket surgery

    There's a few things in The Academy - try a search for "rocks" with the search tool. If you choose "advanced search", you can specify the forum you want to look in. The photography and scenery forum may have some stuff too.

    Basically, you can tackle this two ways...

    1) Carve the rocks right into the styrofoam with an Xacto knife, razor blade, pick and/or other tools.

    2) Coat the styrofoam with plaster (joint compound, lightweight spackle, etc) and carve the rocks in that.

    Hope that helps.
