    Finishing with the chisel. Guarneri Andrea

    I have been working on a cello scroll all day, this time I am going to finish the surfaces with the gouge.  For example and inspiration I look at this Andrea Guarneri scroll.  The work is both, rough and refined.  I assure you it is a very hard look to achieve.  Why do I like it so much?  Because surfaces that are finished with the chisel show the intent of a simple and effective technique.  Time has then softened some of the edges and accentuated the volumes where leftover varnish has created darker areas.
