Hello Alm63 Haven't heard of that one before. What is it you want to treat and maybe I can help?

Jins and sharis on what? There are plenty of on line bonsai shops to buy some, if there is nothing in the area. There are some alternatives but it depends on the wood your treating.

I would treat all of those with lime sulphur. Not neat though as it looks unrealistic. 50/50 ls and water with a tiny drop of black ink, just to grey it off. Deadwood on deciduous, I use Ronseal wet rot wood hardener.
