BeardedDragon.org has this excellent article about constructing your own fake rocks for your beardies or other climbing lizards. The author takes you through step-by-step how to construct the fake rocks, and the pictures he has look amazing. The best part is that you only need the following things:

- 3 Polystyrene sheets, 4ft x 1ft-10″ at 2″ thick sheeting
- 1 Polystyrene sheet, 4ft x 1ft-10″ at 1″ thick sheeting
- Floor tile grout
- Poly-expandable foam
- “No Nails” for Polystyrene / or similar contact adhesive
- Appx. 500ml of water-resistant PVA (non-toxic children’s version)
- Paints (non-toxic acrylic paint)
- Plastic artists pallet knifes (6 piece set)
- ½” Paint Brush

That list is easily filled at a good hardware or art supply store, and for not a lot of money, especially when you consider that the end product rivals something that would cost $200 in a pet store.
