Dyes and sealer
If the instrument in white must have a nice base color, it must be tinted before varnishing. However, because the hardness of the wood can vary, it can unevenly absorb the dye. It is therefore recommended that the wood of the instrument be pre-treated to ensure that the color is pleasantly uniform.

Instructions for the pre-treatment of wood
Dissolve gelatin powder in of warm water at 3% ratio and then heat until the solution is clear and thin. Apply the warm solution evenly with a bristle brush, allow to dry completely and, only if it is necessarely, sand very carefully with a fine paper. The various water stains can now be applied.
