Hi Luciano,
I think your creation is beautiful and thank you for the step by step... I am concerned that it will not last long; my mentors tell me that a hard stone is the only thing which can withstand the force of the roots. Enjoy it as long as you can. Your bonsai is a great illusion!
Best,
Todd

Thanks for his analysis, respect their point of view.
The art tries to imitate nature in centimeters.
Would not that be a grand illusion??????????

Love the composition of this tree and rock. I'm very interested in watching these fake rock works of yours over the years. Hope they last a long while.
What are the spiny looking plants planted in the rock?

In future we will try to make a video.
And we will have captioning in English.
We've done this fix on: Trident Mapple, Ulmus, Piracanto, Juniperus, JBP., Brazilian Rain Tree ...
Shabat Shalom Luciano.

We use the base pigments of iron oxide can be added to the cement.

Did this start as a natural rock with additions or was it purely created from cement? Great work either way, but has different starting points.
