Rubble Reference

Kind of a tip. It makes fairly nice rubble reference to just break up some styrofoam and dip it in a cup of paint to kill the white some. If you're really concerned you could dip it in a bucket of housepaint to get a more opaque covering I'm sure.

If you want some rocks rather than man-made rubble then take some of that soft foam that comes in flexible sheets and tear it up and dip it in paint. These actually look really good if you make sure to get rid of the hard edge sides. We did this at Cincinnati Playhouse when making the set for Of Mice and Men.
