I have before used expanding foam, cut it into shape and then covered it in grout, on top of that you can also put sand. Reptile safe paints i am not too sure of... The cool thing about expanding foam is that it is quite light and you can sink hides and other things like plant pots into it whilst it is setting. There are many guides on youtube which explain the process more clearly as it takes quite a bit to make it reptile safe. You can also use regular polystyrene and such styles can be found on the channel https://www.youtube.com/user/LizardLandscapes
Those projects are very informing and useful, but it is really up to you on what you want to build,
Thanks,
Philo

Paint wise, I would use acrylics and put some kind of varnish or sealer over the top. If you leave the sealer to dry, then the paint will be sealed beneath it and should be safe.
