I am going to be working on building a bonsai aquascape, and I figured I could ask around these forums for dead bonsai to help with my project.
I will pay for the right piece!
Please contact me here or via PM. Thank you.
YEah boiling would speed up the hydration process. Their are resins out there that permeate several layers of hardwood for banisters and flooring. I'm no expert on it, but they are more durable than painting on layers of polyurethane.Cerise wrote:Apparently if boiled, bonsai will manage to sink. It has been done before just not so sure exactly what kind of wood it was. Oak does look the best. I believe there are ways to waterproof wood with some sort of chemical just not sure what it is. I have plenty more research to do, however any help at all is great!
