Beautiful. I truly hope you left it there.

BTW, the color of this deadwood should be testament to how ugly is the blank white you get when deadwood is treated with lime sulfur -- and there's nothing you can add to get that silvery color.

Please show me. I've been doing bonsai for 40 years and have never seen anything that resembles natural bleaching of the wood.

This one looks so similar to another photo that was on Flickr awhile back. Amazing what Mother Nature creates. She truly is the best teacher!

Replicate mother's nature's process - first desiccate the wood, then bleach it, then preserve it, then tint it. I'll leave the exact steps up the reader to discover as home work (to quote all engineering professors!)

Now if you said match the TEXTURE of old deadwood then I would have agreed with you, but the color is recreatable.
