Paring and bending are the two methods of bending trees in shaping ornamental plants, in this article we will guide in detail these two methods.
Bending by wire
Crimp is the first lesson to make a bonsai. If we do not know how to bend properly, we can not make a beautiful bonsai. To make beautiful branches, it is necessary to have the difficulty of the curves. If we do not bend the string properly, we can not bend the tree to our liking.
To begin with, I instructed you to bend from the trunk, the small branch. Before we bend we have to determine what is the shape of the bending, why do you often ask me to draw a draft? Then people do not just do not know, but I know everyone looks, suppose only one tree from the bottom up as stark as a lamp, people can see the whole tree It’s like I drafted it for you. When a tree is bent we bend in principle from big to small, which means that we have to bend the largest branch to the next small branch, from the tree to branch, branches. The concept of primary branches is the main branch, the branches are divided from primary to secondary, then to secondary, and the next. These are the words that need to be unified. In one of the most beautiful bonsai is able to be level 5, which makes level 5 to avoid being limp is very difficult, most of you level 3 is finished.
First bend from the stem first. An experience to support the rope for you, if we bend the ropes for the big branches, to go a stretch we prepare to bend, we should take twice as long as the bending path, branches to much. When bending is tight, do not cut the excess. With small branches, small strings we only need to fold in half. This is the relative rate, the small experience itself see. As mentioned, this tree, for one strand, goes best with the least strings, especially those with less curvature, we bend from the stem. First cut the branches identified as not used.
With the wire wrapped, so little use, later the shell is only moist, very susceptible to mold, easy to eat bark, should use aluminum ceiling than the cover. And not to be uncomfortable when you do, the cover is just sloppy, we bend the hook. I pin one head to the ground to fix it as a fulcrum. Bending in the direction of the bending direction we want to bend, then the wire will go into the body, bending the opposite wire will open. To bend a tree properly, we bend about 450, the force hitch hugging the body, trying to bend evenly – just look aesthetically with the force to bend, one hand holds the bending part nearest as a fulcrum, one hand wires and bends.
Here, a technique to avoid, most of us originally bending branches, usually at the crossroads of branches or we are torn (cracked), to overcome, we bend in the way: to the fork three rounds it is hard, there is more (for the pet) we turn around a branch. Another experience of bending, to find the bending direction to force the wire to tighten, after selecting the finished face, all the branches on the left bend to the left – counter clockwise (viewed from this branch) , when we bend the end of the wire, we must lock the rope – the cords crossed the rope again, the branches will not slip and be pulled out of the rope, cutting the excess rope so that the rope back to the aesthetic. To bend the right branch, we bend to the main body to be the fulcrum, bending in the direction of clockwise (from the top).
Crimp for small branches in the same direction with big branches. Bending so that the wire bending under the branches – branches remain the same. Bending to the final limb.
Crimp is finished, we come to bending body, shake coal is arbitrary, feel each other. When bending does not need to know, but at the point – the curve must have a locking point at that point, not to be torn, broken branches. Note when bending need to turn the tree – branch with bending.
To bend branches, shake the depths, shake the first one back (not most), the second to break the front but slightly down a bit (like springs) to create depth of depth. According to the size of the branches, shrinkage. Normally a spike makes about 5 co. However, we avoid equality, and our emphasis is on corrosion – sparse, rounded – distorted, but must follow the whole. For monstrous (soft-bending), we use 2 small shrubs in a coil. From a creative aesthetic perspective of each person will create different but different.
The branches are brittle, to bend, we bend the type of spring, just bending spin. Should have a branch on each vertex, between the two ends should also have a branch to create frost – the thickness of the branches, called chasing branches, choose to cover the space and not be hidden, Like the main shrubs for branches – secondary branches. Branches in square steps, should not bend down to the main branches (except fir trees). We bend the small branches at the branches create triangular deflection here. The top of the tree, which is close to the body, is in the opposite direction of the body.
When making the tops, do not use as many branches as the top but only one branch to the top, so that the tops are not edged.
