GMM22 Posted June 9, 2005 Report Share Posted June 9, 2005 I understand that the topic of restoration is complex. However, I am curious to know the very basic principles of the subject of touching up chips, flaws,and flakes. Given that there are so many varnish formulas, do better restorers try to match the varnish type and color, or do they have a multi purpose type of coating that can be color matched and used on all violins? Do they ever use artist type of paints for micro restoration and flaw correction? What are the basic principles of fixing chips and deep scratches? I am not expecting complex answers just some general starting points of consideration. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
