ValsparŪ Stone Spray Paint

So I figured I'd like to attempt a form rock wall. Thought about buying enough Seiryu stone, but can't justify it. I am going to paint the back of the tank with the ValsparŪ Stone Spray Paint, and wanted to paint the form inside of the tank with it also. Anybody know if it's safe to use inside the tank? Will it last?

I've had good experiences just mixing some sand in with epoxy, and using that to coat styrofoam or whatever.

You will probably need to end up coating the paint with something to seal it anyways, so it might be easier to skip that step altogether.

I think the dendroboard folk use drylock quite often, with pretty good results, but it's not something I personally have any experience with.

Thanks lochaber, I've been reading a lot about Drylock, but mixing good colors out of it is going to be interesting. This is the one solution I am likely to try this weekend.
