Fungi Bonding

After further research into the use of fungi to grow my materials, I thought that if the fungi was placed around another stronger material, that it could spread throughout it to bond the two together, creating a hard substrate. I have discovered that the type of fungi that I would need to use is called mycelium, which is the fibers found in mushrooms. To find out more about this concept I have emailed a company in Belgium who specialise in the growth of mycelium, dealing with many different strains with all sorts of applications, so hopefully they can offer some advice!
