Hi IBC, the big casaurina is ready for workshop...


natural deadwood with holes

details down to the core

mimicking the shari holes

creating the artificial twist

clear some branches as well...this will be the new form in the next repot, tilted a bit to bring the canopy on top from the back.

after treating the wood with lime sulfur and moist sealant for one week, The new "dead wood" then will be flamed. then sealed again...


I hope you like it.

hi jun, good so far, now you need to disguise the tool marks, try using a rotary wire brush in a low speed drill, then burn the wood with a blow torch then go over it by hand with a bonsai wire brush. this will age the wood so it looks original. regards john .
