Best sealant for foam backgrounds ?

Which is the safer option to seal + waterproof after I have grouted my foam background? I don’t want to loose the texture of the sand that i’m adding into the grout. Maybe I should mix in sand with the waterproofed that i’m going to use?
Please help!
I am in the UK so drylok is not an option.

I wouldn't use either of those products. You want something that is clear and more liquid = easier to apply.

Why do you want it water proof? Are you planning on having a water feature? If not, water resistant is fine.

An exterior rated polyurethane would work well.

Do you think this ProRep would work?

I assume it would be easier to clean and if my beardie poops on it, it won’t damage it as such.

The only thing I can really find is this, do you think this looks okay?

I’ve also just found this on amazon which says it is pets safe so I will probably go with this.

Getting ready for another day. Feeling sleepy. 😴
I just walked into my room and instead of looking at me, Swordtail's eyes darted directly to the ice cream drumstick I'm holding
Finally replaced Swordtail's substrate

What is a quick way to warm up a cold beardie? His heating element went out overnight and now he's very cold.
