I came across two interesting photos of a violin importer web site.  From the appearance of the two sides of a back plate (before and after, perhaps), it does appear that the maple flaming is painted.  FB72C9B5-C66D-45FF-9ECE-272DA3FB036E.jpegImage Enlarger513B36D0-A2DD-48CD-8B67-1F3635619A94.jpegImage Enlarger

I was wondering about this in the EBay antique violin thread.

I always wanted to be a juvenile delinquent but my parents wouldn't let me.

I am glad I did not graduate with a fine arts degree in China.  That looks to be a boring way to slog through life (and lose eye sight).
