You don't need to drink it, just rip them open and pour out the contents and glue it down.

I use coffee grounds as part of my ground material. Its just my personal rule that i do have to use them first. That way i get lots of terrain material plus a really good work ethic.

The key to building terrain is a good eye for similarities. I looked at a sponge, and realized that it was the same texture as a rock. I looked at popsicle sticks and realized they looked like miniature planks. I've never spent more than $20 on a piece, it all comes down to how well you can see household items.

Take this piece, one of my favorites. Pure styrofoam insulation ($8 for a pack of 4 boards 8'x2') and popsicle sticks. Some imaginitave building, some tacky glue, and some painting techniques, and you have a 2'x2' board to work with.

Good luck with your building!

very nice
it is a pity that our friends lie in between, if no land divided Isengard and Mordor then they could fight while we watched and waited.
