Soon I will have to get my hands on two violins, my aspiration (long shot) is to imagine how a red violin look when new, and attempt that (I know, you can laugh, I do ). Any information, ideas, abstract thinking, pictures of old, pictures of new violins one may think look similar to what a new violin looked back then, paintings and so on are appreciated. I am interested in the reddish cremonese violins. Some thoughts: -Wood lighter colored, no graying from uv and a little more towards the light golden? Perhaps this pict of a lignin stabilized pine with lignostab has any relevance? (if so, more contrast?) -Varnish not as oxidized, paler colored? -Red color brighter, stronger, deeper, and more illuminated? -Varnish a little thicker? (before 250 years of shrinking) Thank you in advance. (I know color lightfastness behaves differently in wood+varnish+indoors+inside a case - than in cloths, but just for the spirit of inquiry)
