I Think?

And I really hope you can appriciate this.

You really need my awesome latest varnish and I will give you some for free as will I give some to LK. It is really, really good (you have some 2017 or 2018, can't remember). My latest cook is Roger Hargrave color and super dark and very nice to spread with a small brush (small strikes as RH describes), or your fingers/hands .

I'm going to cook more this summer after our grief (vaiennut viulu, svärfar)

Thanks for the offer, I'd be happy to try your new varnish. My thought was to apply some dark varnish to tone down the bright red at this stage (this is just ground + alizarine color concentrate) 

Very sorry to hear about your loss :(

Hi Andreas,

I won't try to antique it as I do not have the skills :)

I hope the "fire engine" red will tone down a bit when I apply some dark varnish over it. Maybe this was how some heavily colored Strads looked like when new... , I have also blackened the chamfers as seen on some cremonese instruments.

I’d put it in bright sunlight for a few days first. 
 

In the end there were quite a few makers famous for intense red, spontaneously Silvestre comes to my mind and there are other French makers.

So, have you changed the color that red into this yellow?

Amazing! and beautiful!!

Thanks, this is another instrument though. It was meant to show the effect of shading by adding color. "glazing" I think the technique is called
