paper- You need to upload the image first, on a hosting site such as www.photobucket.com, before you can link to it.

LOL
I didn't realise that this thread was that old ;D

Anway

Pleased to help out.
And canyons generally are dried out rivers :P
But I don't think this one was built as a dried-out river, as such- just a canyon.

I know a guy who used a method you may want to use. We built a beachhead, but it had large "rock walls" on the side. Basically just build up layers of foam, and then we used plaster (but it was pretty thick, kinda like toothpaste, so it would stick) and then while it was drying we took small tools (I forgot exactly what it was, but a good butterknife would do the trick) to run horizontal lines across the length of the plaster. Then we sanded that down once it dried. Don't sand too much, just to get rid of any sharp angles. That method makes good canyon walls.
