Thanks guys. Nathan it's just your typical Wisconsin oak.  Whenever I walk the dog I take 100 pics of close up tree bark.  My neighbors think I'm crazy but I'm ok with that.

How did you create it.  Did you sculpt it or use a texture stamp?

Stephan, that`s e newly created (top secret) lol. but I would guess something like doing your typical rough bark and then sort of slinging some mortar bits. Of course, gotta clean back the fissures in the bark.....

This was an add on for a fireplace surround. Had to get it done quick, so I used rapid set. I mixed very small amounts and stacked little by little. I used a chip brush for texture. Was able to apply bark and color within 4 hours, installed the next morning. I used acrylic paints from Walmart that I watered down.
