Anyone ever tried this, Rockwork

We want a cave like look in an area of the haunt. I was thinking of something lightweight and fireproof.
Has anyone ever made a shape out of chicken wire and covered it with foil?I had thought with minimal overhead support for the chicken wire and a covering of wrinkly foil is might look like rock. Spray it up a little with some rocky colors. How to fasten the foil to the wire is a question.
Is this just a crazy idea? I know it would be a little fragile but would also be easy to repair. And most important fireproof.

You could mix chicken wire and foam. Bust up a bunch of foam scraps, and start gluing them randomly to the chicken wire. Then use a few cans of Great Stuff to fill things in. Once it's all dried, use acetone in a squirt bottle, and a heat gun or propane torch, to deform and distress it. After your texturing starts to work for you, a couple coats of paint will be easy to add. The foam should be quite rigid and durable, and kids touching it won't wear it out as easily as aluminum foil.
