    are natural rocks not available to you?

    I meant home made caves. I have rocks, I just wanted to be creative and make Caves. And theres so many websites of people making there own back grounds and what not, I wanted to try it. Cement lasts over 100 years once fully cured?

    Fired clay is pretty much inert, cured cement is not.
