    <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.

    <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>

    <p>Aloe is a thickened juice derived from the leaves of various Aloe species. It belongs to the Liliaceae family and is indigenous to regions such as southern Africa, Egypt, India, and Mediterranean countries with a similar climate. In commercial trade, Aloe is often named after its place of origin.</p> <p>The process of extracting Aloe involves extracting the juice by cutting the leaves and allowing it to dry in the air. Alternatively, an Aloe extract can be obtained by boiling the dried leaves and evaporating the resulting decoction. This extract is considered inferior and is primarily used in medicine due to its high concentration of bitter substances.</p> <p>Two main varieties of Aloe can be distinguished based on their appearance, although there are also mixed forms. The first variety, commonly sourced from Capeland, has a shiny appearance because it is dried over a fire. However, prolonged storage may cause it to melt if it contains a significant amount of salt, which is considered an impurity. The second variety, known as "Leberaloe," has a dull, resinous, leathery brown exterior. Aloe sold under the name "Aloe Mosselbay" is a type of Kapaloe, while Port Elisabeth is another region in South Africa where it is produced but further east.</p> <p>Aloe contains aloin, an anthraquinone pigment. The percentage of aloin varies between 5% and 40% depending on the variety. Different types of aloin are designated with a prefix corresponding to the origin of the Aloe variety (e.g., Kapaloin). Additionally, aloinosides, which are glycosides of aloin, and aloeemodin are also present. Nitric acid can be used to extract chrysamic acid from Aloe, which appears as yellow leaflets when dried and dissolves in boiling water with a red color.</p> <p>Chrysamic acid is primarily employed for dyeing wool and silk. When combined with soda ash, untreated wool can be dyed blue or blue-gray, depending on the concentration of the dye bath. The resulting shade of blue is somewhat similar to indigo, but with a slightly reddish hue due to Orseille. In leather dyeing, chrysamic acid was utilized for achieving yellowing effects. Silk can be dyed with chrysamic acid, resulting in shades ranging from purple to rose red, and with a more diluted dye bath, various shades of pink can be obtained. Although chrysamic acid allows for other color variations, it is also commonly referred to as "aloe purple."</p> <p>Untreated Aloe readily dissolves in warm water and can be used to dye fabrics in yellow and brown tones, although the colors are not very lightfast. Without mordant salts, wool dyed with Aloe appears dark brown, while alum produces a reddish light brown hue. Ferrous sulfate yields maroon colors, and post-treatment with potassium bichromate darkens the browns. Due to the low lightfastness of Aloe-dyed textiles, it is often combined with other dyes. Aloe solutions in nitric acid are also utilized for dyeing wood, resulting in shades of yellow or resembling mahogany.</p> <p></p> <p>Product Data Sheet</p> <p>Product: Aloe capensis, powder</p> <p>Origin: South Africa</p> <p>Protected species (CITES): yes</p> <p>Harvest: wild gathering</p> <p>Fertilization: no</p> <p>Time of harvest: April – June</p> <p>Identity: complies</p> <p>Cleaning: manually</p> <p>Drying: drier</p> <p>Degree of crushing: ground</p> <p>Pharmacopoeia: complies to Ph.Eur. 2.8.13</p> <p>Pesticides: complies</p> <p>Chlorpyrifos and -methyl: &lt; 0.01 mg/kg</p> <p>Heavy metals: lead, cadmium, mercury: tested</p> <p>Microbiology: complies to Ph.Eur, herbal medicines, Cat.

    <p><span style="background-color:#fbe329;"><strong>SOLD EXCLUSIVELY TO PROFESSIONALS!!!!</strong></span></p> <p>Oxalic acid is a chemical compound that finds various applications, including marble cleaning and the removal of light rust patinas from metal objects, especially during the restoration of historical artifacts such as plaques, helmets, and studs.</p> <p>To lighten wood, oxalic acid is dissolved in water or alcohol and then evenly applied to the wood surface using a brush. 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.

    <p>Copal can be considered a young form of amber, still in a phase of chemical and physical transformation (amberization). It can be distinguished from amber by its opacity and the presence of numerous insects and other small animals inside. Unlike amber, copal is soluble in substances such as ether or benzene and can be completely dissolved to recover the insects inside.</p> <p></p> <p>Copal is extracted from various parts of the world, including Sierra Leone, Benin, Cameroon, Congo, Angola, Zanzibar, Mozambique, Madagascar, Mexico, Colombia, Brazil, Philippines, and New Zealand. It is produced by various species of broadleaf plants and occasionally by conifers. For example, Madagascar's copal is produced by a legume still present on the island, Hymenaea verrucosa (copalier). South American copal is produced by various plants in the Burseraceae family, such as Icica icicariba (which produces Brazilian gold copal), Bursera microphylla and Bursera graveolens (which produce black copal), and Protium crassipetalum (which produces white copal). Colombia's copal is produced by another legume in the Santander Department. Finally, the Philippines and New Zealand's copal is produced by a conifer in the Araucariaceae family, Agathis dammara (locally known as Kauri).</p> <p></p> <p>Manila Copal Gum comes in resinous masses of varying sizes, with surfaces of more or less dark color and a melting point ranging from 103°C to 120°C. It is soluble in alcohol and insoluble in common solvents.</p> <p></p> <p>Manila Copal Gum is soluble in alcohol at a temperature above 94°. After pyrolysis, Manila gum produces a substance soluble in alcohol and allows only small amounts of oil to be added. A solution is obtained that, when mixed with other resins and varnishes, can be used to prepare adhesives, putties, wood varnishes, and as an antique finish for frames, furniture, etc.</p>

    <p>Varnish with a high concentration of resin, formulated with Baltic Amber, linseed oil thickened in the sun and polymerised linseed oil.</p> <p>This varnish produces a beautiful, transparent, warm and resistant coating. It gives an optimum result to be combined with pigments, dyes and on glazes.</p> <p>It makes the colours brighter giving depth, luminosity and incomparable solidity. 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>Cremona Varnish is used to heighten the varnish’s suppleness, resistance and elasticity.</p> <p>The incorporation of processed thickened Spanish turpentine, Baltic burnt amber, and top quality linseed oils to the Cremona Varnish, allows enhancing the suppleness, resistance and elasticity properties of the varnish.</p> <p>The shade of the coating is slightly lighter than that the one in the Classical Amber Varnish, but just as warm and luminous, obtaining an even more unctuous and prolonged application and achieving excellent levelling, drying and transparency parameters.</p> <p>Cremona Varnish can be diluted with solvent and OW Thinner</p>

    <p>“Italian varnish” is a classical oil varnish made with natural and traditional raw materials.</p> <p>Imagine the "Italian varnish" as a true work of art, carefully crafted by the talented technicians at the Old Wood Company. This classical oil varnish, steeped in tradition, is a result of their dedication to using natural and time-honored materials.</p> <p>The artisans at Old Wood Company took a trip back in time, consulting ancient recipes to breathe life into this varnish. They mixed pre-treated colophony and Baltic amber with oils, creating a varnish that not only exudes transparency but also carries a subtle, light hue that pays homage to ageless craftsmanship.</p> <p>Ensuring the perfect blend of hardness and flexibility, the Italian varnish from Old Wood Company joins the ranks of respected counterparts like Cremona, Classical Amber, and Brescia Varnishes. While they share a similar recipe, each varnish boasts its own unique color, a touch that reflects the artistry put into every batch.</p> <p>In the realm of technical wizardry, each varnish, including the Italian varnish, is painstakingly crafted to strike that sweet balance between its components. Rigorous testing, overseen by the skilled hands at the Old Wood Company, assures that these varnishes meet the loftiest standards.</p> <p>It's worth noting that the Italian varnish, crafted by the artisans at Old Wood Company, isn't just about hardness and flexibility; it also brings a lighter color and a quicker drying time to the table. These distinctive features, coupled with the know-how of the Old Wood Company, make this varnish a standout and valuable addition to the world of artistic finishes.</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>

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.
