Steps in making rock trough from styrofoam fish box

Today I made my first "rock" trough out of a styrofoam fish box.  Here are the items you will need to create your own:
Styrofoam fish box (Mine was from a pet store, but you can also get them from fish market)
Wire Brush (bought mine at Big Lots $2 for 2)
Heat Gun (found in the paint department of most hardware stores)
Masonry Paint
ShopVac for vacuuming up styrofoam pieces

Tip: Do not attempt to rough up styrofoam inside of the house as this process is extremely messy.

I am planning on planting mini gardens in my new troughs.

Styrofoam is constructed from foamed polystyrene and was first developed with 1941 by Dew Labs. Once you get some Styrofoam it'll look really poor and to interrupt, actually after you carry out crack it you will notice it's crumbly texture. Actually in the event Styrofoam is definitely with the right products it becomes strong. The other supplies include tangible or maybe pressed paper.

Thanks for sharing useful post. Some days before I wanted to make a fish box with polystyrene but I had no idea how can I made this. But now I read your post and I'm ready to do this with my own hands.
