rip up the foam blister into chunks
Stick them in the blender and whiz for a couple of seconds

Added to blender and whiz again for a few more seconds

when dry the left over foam blister should now be foliage that can be added to bases or trees, simple

As other poster said this kind of thing could get a bloke in all kind of bother lol

A great tip none the less & also good for doing junp packs or explosions just use the black paint instead of the green.
