Final layer : amber oil o.v. 5 coats

New Varnish : 
It is a zinc rosinate from precipitate ( Rosin dissolved in alkaline solution of water and potassium Hydroxide wher then the rosin is precipitated with a zinc salt , technically is a modified rosin ) 
The yellow color is given by a hydroextract of a reseda luteola , a plant that provides a very resistant yellow . 
The oil used is raw flax oil cold-pressed clarify to the sun .
It can be used as a ground or for color layer .

I think it will be very successfull in combination with your Amber varnish, maybe even more transparent. What do you think?

For combination  you mean varnish mix? 
this varnish is also excellent as a ground , and can be mixed with iron rosinate varnish ( brown) and madder zinc rosinate varnish (orange)

No I meant how the  final result will look  after application of all layers, not to mix it with the Amber varnish

It's made with 'raw' linseed oil?   When you say raw do you mean it's not processed in any way?   

Yes , after i exposed this linseed oil to the sun for 3-4  month . In this manner , the oil , begin clarified and purified . Is the best linseed oil for pictorial art .

This was given to me by an old Italian violin maker.
This is a Calcium Rosinate colored with synthetic alizarin.
What do you think ?

Seems to have some cloudiness, haze (not sure how to put this in English), but with a really nice warm color. Do you have some tests on wood?
