    <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>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>

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>

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.

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.

    <p>ITALIAN GOLDEN GROUND is a ground system (A + B) whose joint application provides a golden cinnamon colour that enhances the natural beauty of the wood, as well as long-lasting protection.</p> <p></p> <p>Italian Golden Ground A+B grounds enhance the natural beauty of the wood, protecting it indefinitely.</p> <p>Italian Golden Ground A. Exposure to ultraviolet radiation (natural or artificial), transforms the clear surface of the wood into a uniform and transparent golden cinnamon colour.</p> <p>An excellent finish is obtained that highlights the wood’s natural resinous structures.</p> <p>Italian Golden Ground B. It should always be applied after component A of the system. It acts as a colour printer and intensifies the resinous area, texture and natural light of the wood.</p> <p>It stabilises the obtained ground colour by stopping the subsequent degradation of the wood to undesirable greyish colours (considering inside light conditions), which maintains the inherent aesthetic qualities of luminosity and texture of the wood indefinitely.</p> <p>Dosage approx:  10 c.c. for violin / 35 c.c. for Cello / 75 c.c. for Double Bass</p> <p>These grounds can be applied using both oil varnishes and alcohol varnishes.</p> <p>Label elements:</p> <p>CLP Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008:</p> <p><span style="text-decoration:underline;"><strong>Product – A</strong></span></p> <p>Hazard statements:</p> <p>Acute Tox. 4: H302 – Harmful if swallowed.</p> <p>Precautionary statements:</p> <p>P101: If medical advice is needed, have a product container or label at hand.</p> <p>P102: Keep out of reach of children.</p> <p>P264: Wash thoroughly after handling.</p> <p>P270: Do not eat, drink or smoke when using this product.</p> <p>P301+P312: IF SWALLOWED: Call a POISON CENTER/doctor if you feel unwell.</p> <p>P330: Rinse mouth.</p> <p>P501: Dispose of the contents/containers in accordance with the current legislation on waste treatment</p> <p>Product A – UFI nº: AGFY-W0FY-Q00M-UEGK</p> <p><span style="text-decoration:underline;"><strong>Product – B</strong></span></p> <p>Hazard statements:</p> <p>Non-applicable</p> <p>Precautionary statements:</p> <p>P101: If medical advice is needed, have a product container or label at hand.</p> <p>P102: Keep out of reach of children.</p> <p>P501: Dispose of the contents/containers in accordance with the current legislation on waste treatment</p> <p>Supplementary information:</p> <p>EUH208: Contains 1,2-benzisothiazol-3(2H)-one.
