    Safe Materials?

    Your DIY on the custom background is awesome! I went out today and got some black "Great Stuff", black GE Silicone, and compressed dirt from the pet store. Next what I need is a backboard, probably going to use cardboard as I am having a hell of a time finding polyurethane sheets in my towns...

I will upload pictures when it is done, probably...
