Hi fellow bonsai freaks.
Last 2 days I spent thinking and working on this juniperus from garden centre I bought last week for 17 euro.
This is first rough styling.
I never wired anything of this size (even if it is still a shohin) so I had hard time to bend those low spreaded branches of this species.
I really had to rape them to get them where I wanted them to be.
So the wiring is nearly as ugly as me, cause I had to add extra wires to hold the main 2 branches and then I was looking at it how the hell am I supposed to wire small branches now :D Crossing wires everywhere :blush:
But I like the result shape and in few years it is gonna be legen....let´s wait for it :)

you could add 2 power line poles and link the copper wires to it. It'll look like the tree was entangles in the wires.
BTW... do you have above ground power lines in your country?

That tree is so ugly that you shouldn't delay the burning of it
