How to make boulders / rocks?

No idea why I said yes to this job but a good existing customer.

We have been asked to make some boulders that need to look like real stone.
My first thought was to get some blocks of polystyrene carve and paint but they also need to be hard so children can't poke fingers in !

Any further ideas ?

Thanks

John

polystyrene is the way to go and coat with something like in the link

Ask this guy to give you a price, http://www.sculpturestudios.co.uk/defau ... tpage=home

I've know Aden for many years and his work is first class, spend a few minutes looking at the work on his website.

Thanks Kev, that looks perfect if we decide to go ahead.

Steve, some very impressive stuff on there and will ask for a price next week.

Thanks both.
