Chapel ceiling

Well I am just getting into working on site at possibly my largest commission to date, working on restoring this amazing painted ceiling , I didn't realize how large the area was until I got up on the scaffold, which in itself is a work of art, I take my hat off to them , it's erected at a perfect working Height and a complete coverage of all the working area, reassuring when you are 60ft above the pews!!
Initially I will be cleaning the whole ceiling area while the moulding contractors manufacture replacement moulding for a large area in the east corner which should take approximately a month, 
Once I have the ceiling cleaned I will them move on to tracing some of the stenciling to be repaired and restored,
Paint samples will be sent off to a specialist conservation paint suppliers in London for colour matching
