I definetly wouldnt use anything toxic like gasoline. there are alot of residual chemicals in it. Put it this way. have you ever spilled gasoline on your clothes? If you have then you would smell it even after you washed it 5 times. pretty sure its not safe. not too sure about paint. you might be able to use non toxic paint. My guess is that if spiders can live on the wall of my house outside than its ok. Beware it could still possibly kill ur T. Ive never tried using anything painted.

I agree with the above post.. About the gas.. That IMO is a stupid risk for your animals.. I mean.. You can hand sculpt the foam.. You can paint it with acrylic... Its non-toxic..

Here.. Check this channel on youtube out..

I have seen some of his videos.. Alot of the landscapes look amazing..
He even has one in there that you can do for your tarantula.. Its like a swamp like tree with roots & hide.. Its pretty neat..

*Edit* Here is the one that he has made for either a leapord gecko or a tarantula..
I really like this.. If I had the skills.. I would give it a try.. Remember though.. Anytime you do something like this you need to be sure to let it fully dry..

Here is the link to that video..

I wasnt trying to imply that you would.. I was just saying what I thought.. Hence why I added "IMO"...

If you happen to try the method in the links I offered.. Be sure to take some pictures of it.. It would deff. be worth looking at IMO..
