It took about 10 minutes to cut and shape the foam using a hot wire foam cutter.
Drying times - I let the Elmer's glue dry overnight.
Gesso dried about an hour.
Paint dried about a half an hour.
Liquitex Gloss Varnish - about an hour.
Mod Podge, about 2 days - in damp weather.
       Pebbles were added to wet Mod Podge
The grassy areas were also pounded with a wire brush for texture - about 3 minutes.

The next step will be to add trees, bushes, some kids playing in the stream, some animals, probably more actual pebbles glued in several places. Who knows what else I might think of as I go along adding things.
