I am currently repairing an old German violin. I've just finished a bit of touch up work and to my disappointment the new varnish is much more glossy than the original varnish. I used spirit varnish for the touch up work. Despite intially rubbing away the gloss with 0000 steel wool, it returns after a few moments of being left alone. Ive seen a few places recommend silica gel. If that is a solution how much should be mixed with the varnish? Thanks!
