More pipework paint testing…

Our second organ pipe conservator has been in last weekend and the director of music managed to take a quick photo of some of the testing she was doing on the dirt and varnish to see if a restoration of the original paintwork is going to be possible.

You can see in the centre where she has rediscovered some of the red paint work. Her report should be in by the end of the week and we’re very excited to read it. The hope is that Betty will get a make over to match her restored sound and going back to the original paint work is definitely our route one approach!
