Existing Bonsai A To Z Entry for Bleaching deadwood
Deadwood is bleached to a silver-white patina, naturally in nature by the effects of sun and rain.
In bonsai lime sulphur is applied to deadwood to mimic the effect and also act as a preservative to the deadwood. When applied the lime sulphur is yellow and smelly but it dries white and the smell disappears. The white then weathers to a more natural shade. (See also Lime Sulphur).
