  1. Varnish wise two instruments in the exhibit stood out for me. The Peter of Mantua 1690 with the one piece back had an extraordinary Varnish with less added color than the ones I am most familiar with. The del Gesu Ferni 1732. On my first glance at this violin across the table it appeared to me as a massive but poor retouch job. I was encouraged to take another look...and I was very wrong. This was an amazing Varnish example...most color I have examined on a del Gesu. Thanks to all who made the exhibit possible.
  2. Are these times to a white instrument or varnished, or set up?
  3. Yes! The essential materials do not change over the centuries....resin is resin, oil is still oil. The few unaltered surfaces are an amazing lesson in application. on we go, Joe
