A small potted rockery bonsai on the indoor or balcony not only enjoys the eyes, but also beautifies the environment. More importantly, the small bonsai can reflect the elegant and leisurely life style of the householders. Imagine that in the autumn afternoon, boiling a pot of good tea, accompanied by the natural beauty of the bonsai, enjoying a quiet afternoon is a great pleasure in life!
Then, you may be curious about the quality of life, but in this close proximity, it concentrates the vast natural beauty of the scenery. What kind of ingenuity do you need?
In the process of making miniature rockery bonsai, basin selection is the first step, and quite exquisite. Generally, there are purple sand basin, disk, marble plate, stalactite cloud plate, terrazzo plate, etc. Most of the shallow pans used in mountain and stone bonsai are rectangular or waist-shaped, with four bottom feet. The pans protrude outward and have many edges to enhance decorative, white or light blue, which can show the water surface. As for the display pots, local materials can be used to create a few with local characteristics.
This is the most important step in the process of making mini-rockery bonsai. We must decide which kind of bonsai and which kind of bonsai shape to make. Otherwise, we can't start. According to the idea, the shape of the mountain body is put in the sand table initially. At the same time, the height and size of the rockery should be coordinated with the proportion of the shallow basin.
Next, we are going to enter the production stage of mini-rockery bonsai. There are three main steps:
The first step is to glue the mountain.
First of all, we should adjust the cement mortar, the mortar should be adjusted with the use, and we should pay attention to the consistency of the slurry.
Second step, stone processing
The use of hammers, chisels, saws and other tools to produce textures and more peculiar shapes is a reflection of craftsmen's skills and skills. Only rich experience and skilled skills can present the vivid bonsai.
The third step is to bond the mountain body.
In the process of bonding, craftsmen should be very patient and careful. When bonding, they should try their best not to see the signs of breakage at the bonding point of the rocks, and pay attention to the removal of the excess glue at the bonding point. Only in this way, a basin of perfect bonsai rockery is a great success!
After the production of beautiful bonsai, in order to be durable, follow-up maintenance is also very important. Owing to the lack of water storage in the soil, it can not withstand strong sunshine exposure. Usually, shade should be strengthened, especially in midsummer, it must be maintained under shade shed. When water is supplied, it is better to spray or immerse in water, which is conducive to the growth of plants, flowers and mosses, and can wash away the dust on the surface of rocks, so as to keep the whole rockery fresh and green and full of vitality.
