189) Paint consultant

189)   Paint consultant - May 28, 2002
                 Brian Powell, well known historic paint expert, spends a day at the Squires Tavern.  Walt and Leslie give him a tour of the building, then Brian spends several hours looking at the paint history using a variety of tools and techniques.  Later in the afternoon, Brian spends a couple of hours discussing some of the information revealed by the paint history- for example whether individual doors and windows appear to be original to a specific room, the type of paint used for the stenciling (distemper paint), the number of layers of paint in a given spot and colors of each layer.
