    Thumbs up Fake brick on styrofoam panels

    This video will show you how to simulate brick or stone in pink styrofoam sheets.

    I am currently building 2 pillars for my cemetery.

    Cool video. Thanks for posting.
    But don't make it look too perfect , it's still a Halloween prop.
    I use a wood burner to burn bricks in my styrofoam. Makes it look old and crappy. But then , I use white styrofoam as we can't get the pink or blue foam here in Cali.

    We basically use the same technique except that I found last year that it was best to "water" the styrofoam before burning it... (I use a standard plant sprayer). It gives it a more stone-ish look... IMO

    My 2 cents!

    Support bacteria - they're the only culture some people have!

    Hi,
    I still have the top cover to do. I'm going to try the water and see how it turns out. The water will stop it from melting.
    thanks for the tip

    I've done it with water too and I like how it has more of an irregular look to it. I used the garden hose with a misting sprayer that can quickly turn to a direct spray so I dont burn the house down.
    We dont need a body bag, we need a bucket.............and a strainer.
