      Looks like #10 solid copper wire. The thicker the branch, the thicker the wire.

      Should have the copper wires for bonsai training
      Come in different sizes
      But I prefer 2mm, 3mm, 4mm, 5mm, 6mm each 500grams
      3 n 4 get use quick

      Thanks! I’m an electrician by trade so I’ll just use the scrap from my service truck! Who knew my profession’s scraps would supply my hobby. Thanks wiring up a spruce and a little eastern redbud as we speak!

      Haha I think those electrical wires have no elasticity but stability when turning or bending
      This is not engineer stuffs man this is artistic
      Your wiring looks messy but hey great job still for trying
      I recommend go through some bonsai video onyoutube on wires
      Happy bonsai keeping
