Clear and Precise Color Balances

Occasionally, the color of the wood needs adjustment for blending the differences in parts.  Shading lacquers with dye are used for minor changes.  Pigmented glazes are used to highlight pieces and add a warm look. 

A pigmented Glaze is applied to highlight and add depth to this mahogany Steinway lid.

The Glaze is manipulated and spread evenly across the lid.

Both parts of the lid are lined together for uniform blending.

Finally, the Glaze is feathered across the lid, before applying lacquer topcoats.
