I styled this tree with Ben a few days ago to help explain the use of raffia in making bends. This is the material, not very exciting and needed a little drama added.
Ben at work.
Ready for bending
After initial bending. A first step towards bonsai. A long way to go but a good start.
This is excellent work!!
Learning techniques for using raffia is a must for Working Pine!
I have like many used other materials like self amalgamating tape etc, but Raffia is so much better!
