    <p>OLD WOOD carefully processes these complex dyes to create two unique golden hues. Golden Yellow is the most vibrant, with bright orange tones. This plant originates from Central America and belongs to the Asteraceae family.</p> <p>The Aztecs used it as their primary dye for yellow-orange shades, as described in the 16th-century Florentine Codex compiled by Friar Bernardino de Sahagún. The codex mentions that Xochipalli was the Nahuatl name for these dyes obtained from the petals of Cosmos sulphureus, a plant that grows in Mexico.</p> <p>The primary coloring agent in Cosmos sulphureus is the pentahydroxy chalcone hexoside, a flavonoid of the anthochlorine type commonly known as coreopsin. However, the plant also provides color through additional flavonoids, such as isoquercitin and luteolin glycosides.</p> <p>OLD WOOD meticulously subjects these complex dyes to a careful process to create two golden hues, one with greenish oak nuances (Golden Oak) and the other more yellow with bright orange accents (Golden Yellow). Both are characterized by their extreme transparency, vibrancy, warmth, and vitality.</p>

    <p>OW Siccative is a meticulously balanced blend of siccatives ideal for luthiers crafting their own varnishes or utilizing siccatives-free varnishes.</p> <p>This additive seamlessly integrates with linseed and walnut oils, traditional constituents of string instrument varnishes.</p> <p>OW Siccative ensures uniform drying, regardless of varnish thickness, fostering durability and flexibility while sidestepping tensions and optimizing drying time. Its addition to varnish is a quick and effortless process.</p> <p>This formulation features non-toxic metallic elements, an odorless solvent base, and a high flash point, free from lead, cobalt, or aromatic compounds. The recommended dosage entails adding 5ml (equivalent to approximately 40 drops) of OW Siccative per 100ml of oil in the varnish, with a suggestion to incorporate it into the solvent used for viscosity adjustment, guaranteeing thorough and efficient dilution within the varnish.</p> <p>Keep in mind that the overall drying duration is contingent upon factors such as oil quantity, film thickness, environmental conditions (humidity, temperature), and radiation type (solar vs. UV).</p>

It can be diluted with white spirit, turpentine and with OW Thinner (see “raw materials”).</p> <p>Due to the quality of the oils used, they give the varnish excellent properties regarding levelling, drying and resistance to external agents. The physical properties of the finish will also depend on carrying out a correct curing or drying of the applied coating.</p> <p>During drying, in addition to the evaporation of the solvents oxidation, oxidation reactions also occur with the oxygen in the air. This auto-oxidation is controlled in all our varnishes by a correct selection of secants that guarantee a homogeneous drying on the entire thickness of the applied coating.</p> <p>We recommend drying our oil-based varnishes in an UV chamber.</p> <p># References: Heraclitus.

    <p>Ferdinando Garimberti (1885-1956), a luminary in the realm of violin making, apprenticed under the guidance of masters Romeo and Riccardo Antoniazzi. His journey continued with influential stints at the workshops of Leandro Bisiach and Giuseppe Pedrazzini before establishing his own atelier in Milan around 1920. Here, he not only crafted new violins but also honed his expertise in restoring antique instruments.</p> <p>Garimberti's artistic legacy, marked by extraordinary craftsmanship and an unwavering attention to detail, is notably consistent over time. His creations bear the hallmark of elegance and a meticulous eye for intricacies. Frequently opting for the highest quality materials, he often favored one-piece backs, showcasing a commitment to excellence.</p> <p>The varnish on Garimberti's violins, characterized by its varying color and consistency, typically exhibits an enchanting orange-red hue. This distinctive palette, a testament to his artistic choices, adds a unique allure to his instruments. Many of Garimberti's masterpieces proudly carry a signed label and brand, solidifying their authenticity.</p> <p>The color we offer, crafted by Academia Cremonensis and brought to life by Old Wood Company, pays homage to Garimberti's legacy. Inspired by his penchant for rich and deep red tones, this distinctive hue is a nod to the exceptional craftsmanship and dedication to detail that defined Ferdinando Garimberti's contributions to the world of violin making.</p>

    <p>Refractive ground is a transparent amber ground that provides a “permanent moist effect”.</p> <p>Refractive Ground deeply protects and illuminates the wood.</p> <p>It is a transparent amber compound that provides a refractive index similar to wood. For that reason it enhances and highlights to the maximum the light refractive process generating an “optical effect of depth” on the wood’s surface, developing a “permanent wet effect” on the annual rings, as well as on their resinous and amorphous formations.</p> <p>Its optimum penetration in the superficial layer of the wood avoids the saturation of the fibres, achieving an incomparable luminosity in depth.</p>

    <p>Doratura Minerale is a ground that incorporates mineral compounds into the wood, enhancing the instrument's underlying golden hues, along with an oleo-resinous base that facilitates its homogeneous and uniform application.</p> <p>On one hand, with the introduction of a mineral stratum, the wood's pores are saturated, contributing to improving the wood's characteristics and protection. The coloring provided by these components introduces new nuances of color and increases the luminosity of the final finish.</p> <p>The distribution of the particle size of these minerals creates different levels of refractive indexes between the layers and substrate (the wood itself), favoring the desired dichromatic effect.</p> <p>On the other hand, the transparent vehicle used uniformly fixes these loads and promotes the correct leveling of the application.</p>

    <p>Larch Turpentine, occasionally referred to as 'Venice turpentine,' is a notably dense resin. Its distinctiveness lies in its extraction from the core of the larch tree, deviating from the usual practice of harvesting from the bark. Moreover, it lacks the abietic acid crystals that may tint alternative turpentines. Traditionally employed in varnish production, it is not advisable for use as a final varnish. Its viscosity increases over time in storage.</p>

    <p>The Pine turpentine essence is a natural essential oil extracted through distillation and rectification from the balsamic resin of pine trees. This essence reacts with water and atmospheric oxygen, initiating an oxidation process that leads to the formation of acids. This reaction can result in the corrosion of tin containers, causing the balsamic turpentine essence to darken. Under such conditions, usage is not recommended. A practical approach to prevent this is to fill jars with glass beads to disperse air. Balsamic turpentine essence is effective in dissolving waxes and natural resins such as damar, mastic, and rosin, serving as a historic thinner for oil paints.</p>

It is advisable to use diluted solutions and repeat the application until the desired color tone is achieved. After application, it is important to wash the wood with water and brush to remove any residues. Oxalic acid can cause shiny stains if not completely removed.</p> <p>To remove rust patinas, the object to be treated is immersed in a solution of warm water and oxalic acid. It is important to avoid excessive acid quantity to prevent yellowing of the artifact, so it is better to proceed gradually. Afterwards, it should be thoroughly rinsed with demineralized water and brushed to remove the rust. To completely eliminate oxalic acid, it is recommended to immerse the object in demineralized water with the addition of baking soda.</p> <p>In the case of thick rust, it may be preferable to use a rust converter.</p> <p>It is important to take precautions when using oxalic acid. It should be stored in a well-ventilated area as it can emit toxic vapors. Avoid skin contact and inhalation of vapors, so wearing gloves, a mask with vapor filters, and protective goggles is advisable.</p> <p><strong>Hazard statements:</strong></p> <p>H302+H312 Harmful if swallowed or in contact with skin.</p> <p>H318 Causes serious eye damage.</p> <p><strong>Precautionary statements:</strong></p> <p><strong>Prevention:</strong></p> <p>P270 Do not eat, drink or smoke during use.</p> <p>P280 Wear protective gloves/eye protection.</p> <p><strong>Response:</strong></p> <p>P305+P351+P338 IF IN EYES: Rinse cautiously with water for several minutes.

    <h3>Our evaluation of Eau Japonaise - Popote 500ml</h3> <p>At Grandi Liutai, we have evaluated Eau Japonaise - Popote 500ml for cleaning varnishes and musical instruments in our lutherie workshops. We have found it to be a high-quality and highly effective product in removing glue and varnish residue from our instruments. </p> <p>Eau Japonaise - Popote 500ml is a colorless and odorless liquid that is easy to apply to the surface of instruments. Thanks to its gentle formula, it does not damage the varnish but rather cleans it deeply without leaving streaks or marks. </p> <p>Additionally, we have noticed that this product is equally effective in cleaning the instruments themselves, such as metal parts or strings of stringed instruments. Its ability to remove dirt and grease residue makes musical instruments easier to play and prolongs their lifespan. </p> <p>Finally, Grandi Liutai has greatly appreciated the practical and functional packaging of Eau Japonaise - Popote 500ml, which allows for easy dosing and precise application. The drip spout cap allowed us to apply the product evenly and controlled, avoiding waste or excess. </p> <p>In conclusion, our company can assert that Eau Japonaise - Popote 500ml is a high-quality product and highly recommended for cleaning varnishes and musical instruments. Its effectiveness, gentleness on the surface of the instruments, and the practicality of the packaging make it an essential tool for every luthier or musician who wants to keep their instruments in perfect condition.</p>

    <h2>The most used resin for violins and bows</h2> <p>Rosin is a solid resin derived from the oleo-resin (crude turpentine) exuded by various species of pine tree. Rosin is extracted by heating the oleo-resin to vaporise the essential oils (spirit of turpentine), or through a naphtha solvent process. Rosin is mainly produced in Portugal and Brazil but Indonesia, northern Vietnam, southern China, the US, Mexico and France are also producers.</p> <p>Rosin is sold as a semi-transparent solid ranging in colour from yellow to black and has a faint odour of pine. The commercial grades range from A (the darkest) to K (yellow red), M (yellow brown) and N (deep yellow), through to superior WG ("Window Glass", yellow) and WW ("Water White", slight yellow) sold here by Grandi Liutai Italiani. Rosin is brittle and easily crumbled at room temperature, but melts at around 100-120 °C and is highly flammable. Rosin dissolves in alcohol, benzene, chloroform and ether. It is also soluble in spirit of turpentine and turpentine substitute.</p> <h3>Our evaluation of Portuguese Clear Rosin flakes</h3> <p>We at <strong>Grandi Liutai</strong> have evaluated the use of the Portuguese Clear Rosin Flakes - 100 g in our luthier laboratories, and we are very satisfied with the results. We have found that it is a high-quality product with numerous positive characteristics in the production and maintenance of stringed musical instruments. The Portuguese Clear Rosin Flakes - 100 g has proven to be a high-quality product, ideal for producing a clear and crystalline sound in stringed instruments such as violins, cellos, violas, and double basses. We have also noticed that this rosin is suitable for all types of strings, whether steel or gut. Secondly, we evaluated its ease of use. The rosin flakes dissolve easily. Additionally, the consistency of the rosin allows for easy manipulation, making it ideal for hand applications. Thirdly, we evaluated the durability and stability of the rosin. We at Grandi Liutai have found that the Portuguese Clear Rosin Flakes - 100 g maintains its long-term adhesion, even in hot and humid environments. This makes it ideal for industrial applications that require strong long-term adhesion. In summary, our evaluation of the use of the Portuguese Clear Rosin Flakes - 100 g in <strong>musical instruments is extremely positive</strong>. Its high quality, the consistency of the flakes, durability, and safety in use make it an ideal choice for every musician, whether professional or amateur. We highly recommend this product to anyone looking for a quality rosin for their stringed instrument.</p>

    <p>Extra dark Colophony (rosin), in comparison to light colophony, comprises a higher concentration of essential oils and coloring components. This variant, rich in these elements, is particularly well-suited for crafting violin oil varnishes. Obtaining the dark rosin proves challenging due to the prevailing trend where light rosin is more economically viable. Consequently, a true market for dark rosin is scarce, given the cost-effectiveness of its lighter counterpart.</p>

Il mondo delle vernici per liuteria si divide sostanzialmente in queste due grandi scelte, ognuna con dei pro e dei contro... Ad ogni modo se vuoi dei consigli su come utilizzare al meglio la vernice scrivici. I nostri esperti liutai ti sapranno dare il giusto supporto in questa delicata fase della costruzione.

In alternativa in questa sezione troverai moltissime resine per preparare la tua vernice personalizzata!

L'esperienza di molti liutai dice che non bisognerebbe applicare della vernice ad un vecchio violino, ma nel caso di un restauro si possono realizzare dei ritocchi utilizzando delle vernici fatte ad hoc o acquistate pronte ad alcool o a olio e colorate con i Colori Liquidi HAMMERL - JOHA per renderle più simili possibili al colore originale del violino.
