Heritage Pipe Organ Conservation
Lancaster Painters Australia are passionate about heritage pipe organ conservation. Our pipe organ services include conservation, restoration, reconstruction, re-diapering and beautification work. We performed reconstruction work on the pipe organ in the organ loft of the Sacred Heart Church, Semaphore. We dusted the organ and washed it using sugar soap and water. It was followed by a further washing with clean water and allowed to dry. The casing received two coats of clear. The ranks (row of organ pipes) were hand painted using a copper antiquing effect and gold was applied to the mouth and upper lip of the organ.
