    wanting to make my own using styrofoam, tile cement and mod podge or a similar sealant...

    Will this hurt my dragon? Is it safe? If not are there any suggestions on what i could use?

    Sounds okay to me. I don't have much experience with mod podge, but I have heard good things about the outdoor kind since it is non-toxic and water resistant.

    For the rocks/tree stump I am making, I am using sand free tile grout and then coating it with aquarium silicone. Then, while the silicone is still tacky, I am rubbing it down with a little craft sand to take away the slick surface and to make sure the sand is embedded in the silicone for safety purposes.

    I was thinking along the same lines as the fake rocks, my dragon loves to drink from moving water and such, would it be a terrible idea for me to make him a little waterfall? not big enough to drown in mind you, but for him to come and drink from?

    No. it will raise the humidity too much.

    I use plaster of paris, it sets hard and fast it also takes paint like a champ so you can give your rock a custom look instead of just the color of the grout.

    You can also paint grout with no problem, just get the white or grey grout, and use acrylic paint to add the detail. Grey grout will give you a great base color to start with if you want to paint it.
