welcome ibrar.
you asked a very nice question about bonsai.
the answer is that we use wire to bend a branch or trunk of the tree make its shape or style.its simple just take a wire of 1mm and coil it around the branch that you want to shape or bend.remember you need size of wire against the size of branch or trunk.if you have thick branch you have to use thick wire and for trunk you have to use more thick wire.
just enjoy.
here are the links for detailed instructions.
welcome

Rashid,

Bending extent depends on the species and also to what extent the the tree can withstand the stress.
For example Bougainvillea branches are very brittle, and can snap very easily with the slitghtest bending movement. It needs extra caution to keep the stems from snapping.
On the other hand Ficus and Barringtonis sp. are quite flexible and one can attain considerably the desired bends/shapes with these species.
But the wires on Ficus gets merged/dug in the stem in a very short time..... so one has to be very observant to remove the wires in a month or two before the wire start to dig in. Barringtonia on the other hand are very strudy and flexible and the wires can stay even up to a year.

I would suggest you cut the branches of larger tree (not bonsai) and do the wiring/bending practice. Once you get the feel of it, you can apply the same to your bonsai.
