I would like to try making a rock wall using cubes of blue polystyrene foam, as seen below (from Facebook).
I like the general look and variations shown. Does anyone know of a tutorial or explanation of finishing
techniques to round edges, smooth, score, and texture the rocks for a more realistic look?
Plaster, thick paint, gesso? All help and links appreciated...
