Polystyrene will need to be coated in grout else it will take on water.

The grout can be sprayed, but then MUST be sealed with either epoxy resin, yacht varnish, or pond sealant (be careful which one you choose)

Yeah best off using grout really and when mixed with sand it also gives a good texture.
