The process of softening aluminium/COPPER WIRE by heating and then allowing to cool before applying to BONSAI>BONSAI.

As copper is worked it becomes progressively stiffer. Most copper wire used as a conductor in electrical cables has not been annealed and is relatively stiff. To allow the wire to be used as bonsai wire simply heat with a blowlamp until it is red hot (which happens quite quickly) and allow to cool. The wire will now be much more supple. If you take a piece of the wire and bend it a few times it will become progressively stiffer again.
