TOPIC: jin seal

jin seal 3 years 2 months ago #13941

Hi guys, me again. I am writing to ask a question. This question is this: if you have used lime sulfur, do you have any tips? Another question is this: what mixture of lime sulfur and water do you use or know of. I am wishing to have a shari and jin on a windswept tree. Planning to do it sometime in 2016. Thank you ;)

One pot, one tree, one litre of akadama and one gallon of water. A bowl for stationary. Fire for the fireplace. A way to get my petrol spillages off the floor. Water for my computer.

I have to re-do my shari and jin every year, they turn a bit green after a while.
First I clean them up with a toothbrush, I may use my dremel, if necessary, to make some improvements.
I'll finally use the brush again, leave the cleaned area a bit wet, then apply jin seal with a small paint brush - straight from the bottle.

Not a recent picture, that big root at the bottom of the shari has meanwhile been removed:

Thank you for the reply ;) . I will use it as you have done as it works for you. One annoying thing fo me is that a real good nursery is leaving my local area du to rent depts so on so forth :( . So i will have to get the lime sulfur from online. I hink i will get it from kaizen bonsai. Thank you ;) . It will be fun i think for me to create some deadwood and jin. The top looks very formal compared to the lower bit (IMNSHO, sorry).But as you say the pic was taken time ago so you definitely would have developed it further. Lovely tree ;)

One reason I don't really like to post pictures is because somehow I cannot get that right - it never looks as good as in reality.
You are not wrong though. This was the tree after I thinned it out for the first time, a year ago now. It now has been wired almost completely and I'm trying to form the foliage pads. It will be repotted next spring, then hopefully it will produce the growth that I need to further shape it. It should be presentable end of next year. I hope :)
