Where do you get the foam from? There are a few rigid insulation foam boards available through my Hardware store, about $10 for a 2' x 4' x 2" sheet of AMVIC foam. I don't know if it would work or not.

I cut them just they way they come from Lowes. I either paint them with UGL dry lok to give it a cement look. Or I paint them with ext. paint. all sides and edges. Since they are for Halloween and are only out a couple of days they seem to be holding up OK.
