Isolating layer under red varnish


Recommended Posts

This violin seems to indicate a layer of something before the red varnish was applied. Does anyone have thoughts about what that would be? The pic is from Phillip Injeian website. The violin is Maximilian Frirsz 1924 copy.

It's not so easy to sort out by eye.  There is a color veil layer of red that has worn off most of the instrument.

If you look and think, you can realize this layer is above the yellowness.  

But then there is red in the figures of the wood?  Is this part of the red veil layer and just hasn't worn off as completely??  Or is it actually something that is also 'before' the worn color veil.  Is this color in thw figure before or after the yellowness?

Are there clear between any or all of these?
