As planned, and as I told in the last blogpost, we were to move the floor planks from our workshop barrack to another location. We chose to move them to our “lecture room” where we have a higher temperature than the workshop. This was done in order for the egg oil tempera lasures to dry. The “moving” was accomplished the other day and this is how it looked:
Lärkan and Erik was carrying the sticky and oily floor planks, one by one, from the workshop over the tiny “piazza” to the lecture room where we had prepared chairs and a bookshelf and other devices to be able to fit them in and still be able to use the room:
They all got positioned in the room with a bit higher temperature, and here they will be laying for a while to dry properly before we can place them in their future position together forming the floor in the chapel. We have not decided yet whether we will paint them a third time or not. We decided to wait and take the decision later.
In the afternoons when I visit the chapel it often looks like this in the waining sun:
As You see the ladder that we used to bring the cupola up several weeks ago, is still there, also the scaffolding. That is because we are still waiting for some small windowsills from the tinsmith in the close by village. He has not jet have the time to produce the tiny metal windowsills we want to place at the bottom of the eight windows constituting the lantern. As soon as we get those windowsills and can put them in place we can take the ladder down.
