Mauro and Enrico,

beautiful tree and extra good work!
A question,is there any special treatment for the collapsed lymphatic
veins on a juniper if you want to use them as part of the design.
I mean as deadwood,not coloring and create the illusion they were
alive.

Thanks,great article,
dorothy

hi dorothy.
If I understand your question you are meaning on dead life veins that can be showed like till alive.
In this case I don't like to use this "illusion" , in my openion dead part have to be worked like jins and shari and live veins have to be well clean using soft brush and than oil in the juni or yews to have the good red color to contrast the wite of deadwood.

Mauro,

the reason I am asking :
I am planning the work for a juniper.Some live veins I know I need to keep for the design.But I have one "crossing "situation where the live vein
I plan to keep crosses over another vein which is still alive but will be
eliminated for the design.The branch that coordinates with the vein will be
taken off.Now,what do you do with the vein that runs like a "river under
a bridge"?If you leave the vein,it will collaps and compartmentalize.
If you take it away you have a hollow spot..
Hope you understand my dilemma?

Thanks,
dorothy

Also,

you are mentioning the oiling of the bark (olive oil).
Do you remove the oil film after showing the tree?

Thanks,
dorothy

Yes I am interested in this also, I bought a case of Johnson Baby Oil. It works wonders on my 7th month old son it should do the trick on my trees.
Yes?No?

please dorothy if you have the change send me some pics detail of the vein you mentioned on your juni so I can understand better and maybe give you an help ;)
for the oil question I use simply olive oil and after the expo you can let it on the vein becouse ofter some woter on the tree the film will go.
