Im posting this picture to show you the last project I used PC-Petrifier on and it turned out pretty good on holding the wood together. This is a River mirror I did and it is totally made out of Cottonwood Bark. There is no wood other than the bark on this picture. Now if you know Cottonwood you know that the bark has very deep grooves. In the second picture it shows the inlay I poured into some of the grooves just to put some color into it.

This mirror is 52”long and 19” in it widest area.

Thanks for looking.

You have a very creative mind and I like it.

How did you attach the bark to the mirror?

Thanks everyone.

Arlin I used a glue called F-26. It is made to use on mirror. I works really well and reminds me of liquid nails.
