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

Step 1: Measure the dimensions

Picture of 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.

Let me guess - automatic translation?

Translation for you anglophiles out there:

piepschuim = styrofoam (lit. "squeakfoam", cute neh?)
binnekant = interior
sleuf = slot, groove
plattotje = little platform, ledge
krekels = crickets

I think you can figure it out from there...

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.

. This seems to be a very good Instructable, but there is still enough ?Dutch? included to make it difficult to read.
this is cool :-)
