Post  Hans van Meer. on Sun Jul 18, 2010 1:11 am

Hi everybody,
just to remind you of this amazing transformation by "Andrea Melloni" I just seen and red on IBC partner the Italian bonsai forum.
It is one of the best restyling or better yet, best transformation, of a itoigawa Juniper I have ever seen!!!
With in this style this one is truly amazing!
My compliments to the artist!!!

Thats amazing Hans. Question about bending the jins. How long does one have to let the wet towels sit on the wood before bending and using the torch? Is the bend permenant? Or, will it attempt to move back into original position?

Thanks for sharing. Very cool!

Quite a transformation!

As for wiring the jin, I always do it immediately after stripping the bark off the live wood, while the bare wood is still soft and flexible. That skips the need to re-soften the wood after it has dried. Not, of course, that anything I have looks like that. Or has that much deadwood, for that matter.

I usually just troll around on this forum but after seeing this transformation I had to ask how do you bend such large jins, and jins in general? I see that a fire is used but its hard to believe that a fire was the only thing used to bend the thick jin on top.
