Retouching

Lower Bout Rib

Before And After

This viola had some unusual and unnatural looking wear patterns as well as some darker over-varnish. Some of those areas required a toning down and other areas needed to be matched to the original varnish, like the lower bout rib shown in the video.

I have been really enjoying this retouching project I am working on at the moment, as a relatively short time of retouching can make such a difference in the overall look of the instrument.
