How do you make a back wall? ly! package of what piepschuim, flag adhesive and needle painting.

Step 1: measure the dimensions

you firstly generally measure the half-measures of your terrarium are the binnekant what takes into account smaller therefore that you a couple mm of finished must obtain that draws you there on the piepschuim and cuts out it. I use generally piepschuim of approximately 2cm.
lawl all that dutch it happens me too sometimes (i'm dutch)
i love broken english. i dont know why. i just find it interesting. good instructable too. ive been thinking of making one of these for a while
Let me guess - automatic translation?<br/><br/>Translation for you anglophiles out there:<br/><br/>piepschuim = styrofoam (lit. &quot;squeakfoam&quot;, cute neh?)<br/>binnekant = interior<br/>sleuf = slot, groove<br/>plattotje = little platform, ledge<br/>krekels = crickets<br/><br/>I think you can figure it out from there...<br/>
tegelijm : I think he means Tegellijm , what would be : Glue for Tiles somigge : Some Well , it's a nice instructable , but practice your English more , and your Dutch too lol
o my god, i'm dutch (actually belgian) too, and 13 years old, and didn't even had english lessons at school, and still my english is better than his! laughed out loud!
pretty sure tegellijm is caulking or silicone
Well , Dutch is my native language , and Tegels : Tiles , Lijm : Glue . So glue for Tiles makes most sence to me , but ofc. who am i ?.
. I'm just a monoglot Ugly American, so I thought I was doing pretty good to figure out it was Dutch. heehee
Ya, this is a good Instructable, if a little hard to understand at first. I love the look of the broken edges. -Props to Shooby for offering to translate. I've used a similar technique to do big, flat, faux sandstone walls. Instead of breaking the edge, you use the flat part of the foam and rough it up with sanding blocks, keys, whatever to give some character. Then chamfer the edges all around (1/4") and roll on good coat of glue like Sobo. Spread sand all across the gluey top (you can mix colors for a less even look) and after the glue has started to set-up, tamp it down gently. After it's dry you just knock off the extra sand and voilà. I did it with extruded polystyrene/ blue foam/pink foam. Used 2 foot square pieces of foam and then put them on a wall to create a very cool looking phony façade of a building. I'll post some pics if I can dig 'em up.
mars, if you like, wend me the text in Dutch and I'll translate it. Jouw artiekel is in het engels niet te lezen.
En artiekel schrijf je niet zo ;)
Haha send, niet wend!
i got lost at How O.o
. This seems to be a very good Instructable, but there is still enough ?Dutch? included to make it difficult to read.
this is cool :-)
