Nothing special to tell after the first thin layer, diluted with about 50% balsam turpentine.  The varnish (cooked last summer) seems to be a little darker and easier to apply. 

16.1 I have to change my mind of nothing special to tell, took the violin out of the UV box and put it in another light (image 4&5) 

17.1 The wood and grounding in itself is so beautiful, I'm going to change the strategy a little and make a lighter violin, thin second coat with color (image 6&7)

Next I'm going to shade it a little bit with more color and finally put on a layer of uncolored varnish
