Any idea when ANCRE will publish this monography? Looks very interesting. Fantastic workmanship.
Credo anno nuovo
I believe new year
I was recently in contact with my friend Didier Berti from ancre.
He mentioned, that the publishing of the Monographie of the La Volage is planned for November 2020, so in only 4 months. I guess, that the english version will be published for the same time like the french one.....
Michele:
Your stern decoration is looking great, especially very accurate and complicate work because the parts are very thin - GREAT

Di recente sono stato in contatto con il mio amico Didier Berti di Ancre.
La pubblicazione della Monografia di La Volage è prevista per novembre 2020, quindi in soli 4 mesi. Immagino che la versione inglese sarà pubblicata contemporaneamente a quella francese .....
michele:
La tua decorazione di poppa ha un aspetto bellissimo, un lavoro molto accurato e complicato perché le parti sono molto sottili - GRANDE
[/ CITAZIONE]


Benissimo, quindi Didier Berti ti ha confermato per fine novembre, era quella la data prestabilita all'inizio.:)

All right, so Didier Berti confirmed you for the end of November, that was the date set at the beginning. :)

Buongiorno il cantiere è terminato. Qui sotto le due sezioni sono esposte con un basamento provvisorio solo per poterle raffrontare una accanto all'altra.

Hello the construction site is finished. Below the two sections are shown with a provisional base just to be able to compare them side by side.

I've only one word to say, wow!!
I would be interested to hear details how you make the appealing shadowing / antique look at your carvings. I guess it take more than just applying bitumen and polishing with a cloth?
I would also be interested to hear what kind of final finish you give your models? (I'm in doubt what I should use when I come to that. I have noticed many seems to apply wipe on poly but I wonder if the hard surface would not crack after some years. I wonder if teak oil could be good)

Intanto grazie per i complimenti.
Per quanto riguarda il trattamento che faccio, effettivamente non è semplice in quanto il bitume tende ad inscurire molto il legno. Per questo motivo passo prima una mano di gommalacca, in modo che assorbe meno, e ho più tempo per rimuovere il bitume in eccesso, con un panno o delle spugnette. Poi in base all'effetto che voglio dare decido se passare ulteriormente il bitume. Una volta asciutto do un'altra mano di gommalacca. Se non mi piace l'effetto lucido, do una passata leggera con una paglietta finissima. Non ho mai usato oli, ma per quello che so nel tempo tendono a rovinare il legno.


In the meantime, thanks for the compliments.
As for the treatment I do, it is actually not easy as the bitumen tends to darken the wood a lot. For this reason I first apply a coat of shellac, so that it absorbs less, and I have more time to remove the excess bitumen, with a cloth or sponges. Then, based on the effect I want to give, I decide whether to pass the bitumen further. Once dry I give another coat of shellac. If I don't like the shiny effect, I give it a light pass with a very fine wool. I've never used oils, but as far as I know they tend to ruin the wood over time.
