It's a reprodution panel rock that comes in different size sheets. Usally 4x4 or 4x8 1 1/2 thick. You make the frame out of wood then you brake the sheets up little pieces like a puzzle. Take those peaces placing them where they fit around the frame using drywall screws. It doesn't have to fit perfect. After you've got all the frame covered/piece together to your liking you seal the seams together with foam from aerosol can. Let it dry for awhile then push the foam back into itself. That's where I'm at now... next I'll have to cover the seams with a mixture to blend those seams to the fake rock. Then color using what ever means to get my desired look. My wife wants sandstone so I'll paint the rock rust-red then seal it. I'll spray glue all over it then cover it up with our red desert dirt here wish me luck. I'll try to keep you posted as I go....

Yes, keep us updated. I haven't given a like yet because so far it's all very commercial. When the real thing starts to appear I'll give a like, LOL.
