I saw a huge palm fossil at a gallery this weekend and fell in love. Does want, does not have $140,000. Please help me fake a fossil (for my own enjoyment, not for fraudulent purposes).

A gallery in Jackson Hole has the most amazing gorgeous 6' fossilized palm frond, and I must have something like it. It looks sort of like this
I did find a place in Texas
that fakes them, but I probably can't afford that, either. Also, I'm drawn to the idea of doing it myself.
PLEASE help improve my google-fu to find directions to making a realistic-looking palm fossil. Thank you so much!
