Creating Jin Deadwood -Creating Bonsai Deadwood - Bonsai Technique Series

The Beginners Guide to Bonsai Deadwood Creation is part of a Mini Series, this Video introduces Bonsai Deadwood as a styling technique and gives examples of it in nature.The next three Videos will be on the Techniques use to Create Jins, Ori and Shari.

I'm going to talk to you about the creation of Jins m To start with, you create a sharp cut around the place where you'd want to cut the Jin to. You cut off the Jin to the length that you need it which is usually no more than an inch to inch and a half. So thats about 2.5 centimetres to about four centimeters long. Once you cut to the right size, you need to use a sharp knife to peel away the bark that is on this bit that we've cut away. Use the Jin pliers if you need to, if its a bit stubborn. It helps to twist the Jin pliers around so it removes the bark. And once you've removed the bark, you use the Jin pliers to strip away strips of wood, that is the inner hardwood that is on the branch. We have to make sure that it is treated properly. I would wait a couple of days so that the wood dries just a bit. That's really how to create a Jin on a bonsai.
