As a home owner, I think of Drylok I think of a cheap way to seal or waterproof concrete, however it can be used in tanks! Many people have experimented with Drylok and use it to cover great stuff backgrounds after carving. This creates a unique and one of a kind look and feel. Drylok can be tinted with concrete dye so you can tint it virtually any color, allowing you to add depth to it instead of the one dimensional brown or black you get with some other methods of backgrounds.
Joshdragonz background was created with carved great stuff expanding foam covered with tinted drylok. The rest is covered in titebond and peat.
Waverz tank was created with a great stuff background covered in many coats of tinted drylok.
-easy to apply
-easy to color
-if done right it can turn out very nice
-requires many layers to add enough depth to make it look good
-takes longer to complete than some other background methods
Have you ever used drylok on your background? How did it turn out?
Hope you enjoyed day 4! Stay tuned for Day 5 which will feature letter E!
