Response to making them not buying them

This technique makes excellent bricks, granite block simulations, store wall surfaces etc, cost less than a beer and lasts longer.
Spread out a sheet of aluminum foil on a flat surface and spread Plaster Patching compound out flat, and to the thickness you want. Let it cure approx 30 minutes, then score it to your pattern with a very fine blade. Let it cure overnight, then break apart at the score lines. You control pattern, size and thickness and it white glues wonderfully to cardborad backing.Thicker blocks can actually be used to construct walls just like the real thing.
Sheet-rock mud works good too but plaster patching compound has more elasticity and hold together better. IT is great rubble..Apologies for being so long-winded.
