After 6 days of tanning and monitoring the modes and weight, everything looks fine so I'm starting the varnish process. The violin lost 11 g of weight 301 - 290 g. (estimated weight of the parts)

13:00 First layer of varnish, I did not fill the end grain pores with coloidal cilica this time (forgot!) and it's visible on the top.
18:00 The varnish dries well, second color layer.
One top coat, the varnish is extremely thin and the effect I was looking for is there.
