This is colophony/mastic/linseed oil varnish made in 2010 on Robson balsam ground.  The varnish has some nice dichromatism varying from greenish brown to ruby red when in a drop.


I added a small amount of Old Holland Madder Crimson (C28) and W&N Rose Madder (587).  These built a deep ruby colour which was nicely toned done by some multi-colour 'dirt'.


ps. The very bright sun made it difficult to show the colours properly.


pps.  The varnish is chippy as I found out this afternoon when one of the violins slipped off the cradle gently hitting the side of the scroll (2 dings accumulated on that one).
