Thank you. I rather write more on the process if anyone is interested.
I took ordinary building block like this:



I made a basic shape with a hammer and a chisel and then carve details with a Dremel.

After that I "painted" it with frost resistant flexible cement glue intended for gluing these building blocks together.



Then I used water based paints (light brown, dark brown and black) and stained the rocks after glue dried. (Paints are general paints for metals, wood and concrete going by the brand Balacryl here in Slovakia).

I ordered 5 chinese elms and started with assembling them on the rock.



And the results are in the previous post :)

Mimo, I usually hate boxwood.
But...
Not yours, it's a beauty!

Few pics of previously shared fresh penjing with rock made out of building block after the trees settled in.

Well, if it survive it is gonna be a bit different penjing than on the last pic. Only foliage on the middle stump is still alive. I was a bit too agressive with dremel :(
