Make Artificial Rock Sandstone

Updated:2014-06-26 14:34:56
Artificial rocks are used in many different settings in place of heavy over-sized boulders or natural rocks. They are used in museums, businesses and residential homes for vivariums, landscapes, natural settings and other displays. Sandstone rocks, as well as other rocks, can be made out of different materials, including plastic and styrofoam. You can make large or small sandstone rocks with styrofoam, glue and a few more materials.

Instructions as follows:

                                                    

Firstly, decide upon the shape and size of your artificial sandstone tile.
Secondly, cut chunks of styrofoam and glue the pieces together to make one large or medium size solid mass. Allow the glue to dry completely.
Thirdly, sculpt your styrofoam. Use an exacto knife to carve the styrofoam into your desired size and shape. If you need to cut large pieces of styrofoam, use your sharp flat knife to sever the pieces. Shape your styrofoam to look more like natural rocks by using heat from a soldering iron or a heat gun in a ventilated room. Wear your face mask to protect yourself from the toxic fumes. Make sure to leave imperfections in the styrofoam similar to natural rocks.
Fourthly, prepare the outer surface of the sandstone block with grout. Add acrylic polymer to some grout to stop it from flaking off as it dries. Prepare the grout according to the instructions; but make the consistency more watery than recommended by the manufacturer. Add the acrylic polymer to the grout.
