I'm allergic to Latex and some natural rubbers. What is your terrain actually made of?

Even though we advertise our terrain as "rubber", it is actually made out of Polyurethane. It contains no natural latex or rubber. We obviously don't know all the possible allergies people may have, but this is definitely not a commonly allergenic product - many components inside your car are formed from polyurethane. We can't guarantee that all sets use the same material, but one we have used in the past is F-90 from BJB Enterprises.

If your purchase our terrain painted, it will come sealed in Liquitex Matte Varnish. This is a non-toxic, child-friendly coating, and you can find more safety details on Liquitex's site, or in the MSDS. The bottom of the terrain pieces are generally unsealed polyurethane.

I'd like my terrain pre-painted, but in a different color than you offer. Is that possible?

We do some custom paint work. For a sizeable order (4+ sets) and a base coat color that could be found among the SEM Color Coat colors, it generally only adds 20% or so to the price. Feel free to contact us if you are curious. If you are looking for really custom work (ivy and leaves added, free-hand details, etc.) we do not do that ourselves, but can introduce you to a local miniature painters who is reliable. Costs obviously vary widely.
