Ponytail palm bonsai pruning

i have seen ponytail palms that have several branches growing and i was told that if i cut some of the shoots then new heads will come of it? ive seen it done alot but i am not sure how/where i should cut or what i should do afterwards...since there so cheap i think I'm going to buy a couple more from the store and do this to them...any thoughts?

Chop, seal with was, easy-peasy. But, that's about all you can do, and I would never consider the tree truly "bonsai-able".
