expanding foam

I've seen backgrounds made from expanding foam and I'm tinkering with the idea of using it to make a tunnel or cave using either a terracotta pot or a piece of black PVC for support. Does anyone know if this stuff has to be sealed before it goes int a tank? Also I believe it only comes in white, anyone know of a way to color it?

Re: expanding foam

Ive read some about a product called handi-foam for that type of project, it seems to be exactly what youre looking for, but before you run out and by some on my say so, read this article.
