The Art of Retouching Layers, Retouching and Antiquing by Brian Epp.

In this Revised Edition, Brian Epp has introduced a new section on Antiquing! This is still the first and only book of its kind to clearly & informatively lay out the intriguing process of violin retouching. This book has been sold all over the world and he is honored, at the following it has created. From Cremona, Italy to China, in Europe and the USA. It is a beautifully illustrated instructional manual filled with crisp philosophy and heartwarming reminiscences throughout its pages. This is truly a gem for the lay person or for the professional crafts-person looking for a different perspective to an old tradition.

Note: This book is intended for professionals. Beginners are advised not to practice retouching on valuable instruments but to practice on worthless instruments or on prepared wood samples. Great care should be taken to avoid removing the original varnish, wood or patina. Marks on antique instruments must be evaluated very carefully before eventually being removed.
