Hey Jun,

Look at the following material and tell me is it a piece of cake in this concern? Suspect

Hi Taner,

...it depends on how hard you can blow! (I mean- the act of producing gust of wind from the mouth Razz ).

Seriously though Taner. I think it can be a candidate, but you got to figure it out from the beginning or the initial styling...because the initial branches is very crutial for developing windswept style.

regards,
jun Very Happy


PS. for you Taner...
A very simple straight lined trunk without any character, with a very ugly base, your material is much better than this.

I think all the branches with leaves (except for 3-4 thick branches at the center - not visible easily on this image) need to get thicken more I think! They are still too fresh!
(I mean my material)
I plan to work on it after this summer.
P.S.: Do we have to use only our mouth to blow and create a wind effect? I want to give more powerful wind effect! lol!

I'm seriously struggling not to make comments about Jun and his wind problem here. Mad

Two wee questions:

What species of tree is it Jun?
Did you defoliate it to do the branch placement or are the pictures showing different periods in time?


I like it.

......EWWWWWWWW! that is so disgusting Marcus. LOL. I'll ask the mods next time if I am allowed to show pictures of the "DURING" using this technique. I believe this is already a master class/level technique. hehehe.

Fiona,
Thanks!

I defoliate the tree to show the branch structure. It is best shown during the initial few days when the buds are just popping out.


the specie BTW is Philippine ficus-"Ficus philippinensis"

Had a go at this style a couple of months ago and entered into the spirit of things with both body and soul. I think at times though, we can give a little too much of our soul. Smile

haha - we noticed............but thought it was the first picture in the 'advanced progression' of your elm deadwood.

Virtually the whole set of these paintings showed up on a blog of somebodies a few months ago....they are funny.

...There is a product called "branch hair spray super hold" try it next time Dorothy it might work Very Happy

...Avoid using the seemingly hightech "bonsai widswept creating super equipment" for the folks watching at home, Dorothy and I won't hold any responsibility if some trees turned- "well done" tree.




I have the same bonsai equipment but I upgraded it to Max capacity...hehehe.
