I use the Refined Linseed oil from winsor & newton. (http://www.winsornewton.com/uk/shop/oils-solvents-mediums-and-varnishes/oil-colour/oils/refined-linseed-oil-2-53-us-fl-oz-75ml-bottle-3021748) It works very well both on violins and bows. Guitar makers in my place use a lot this type of oil for the Guitar finishing.

The shop tells, it would slow drying. You surely take it only as beginning for later treatments ?

It does not dry slow (my personal experiacne). The "Add to other oils to slow drying" refers to the counteraction with other elements on drawing. The http://www.winsornewton.com/uk/shop/oils-solvents-mediums-and-varnishes/oil-colour/oils/drying-linseed-oil-2-53-us-fl-oz-75ml-bottle-3021742 has drying elements and dryes much faster.

Do you use it just in this condition ( for varnish or ground) or do to go on with some treatment ?

Are you admirer of Paganini or of the Cannon or both ?
