That stuff is buoyant so you should make sure that your piece of slate is going to sink the foam board first.

Could work fine but it still depends how heavy your slate is. Before you move forward with the silicone or cement just be sure that the slate holds your foam piece under water.

You need to put it in something that you can fully submerge it in....then maybe lay the slate on top of it?

If the slate can pin it down from the top it will hold it down from the bottom.

Are you planning on cementing everything once its all attached?

Yes.

You mentioned tunnels? What do you have in mind? The reason I ask is because I just did a project and tunnels can be very challenging to cement. Something to keep in mind,when sculpting, just remember that you'll have to be able to reach inside the tunnel for cementing.
