XIMENEZ-FATIO HOUSE

Ca. 1790's & 1830's

St. Augustine, Florida



MICROSCOPIC COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS

of the exterior and interior

to determine the

Original Architectural Finishes




Prepared For:
The National Society of the
Colonial Dames of America
January, 1979 in the State of Florida








INTRODUCTION


Research for the paint and color analysis of The 1imenez-Fatio
House was conducted by examining (scraping with a surgical scalpel)
as many "test" locations on the painted-architectural fabric as
possible; then removing small representative samples for microscopic
inspection for the purpose of attempting to determine the color,
type, gloss and/or kind of the particular period architectural
surface coating or coatings of primary interest.

My research began on January 8 & 9, 1979. The decision reached and
and agreed upon by myself and The Colonial Dames concerning the scope
of the research conducted was the following:

Exterior: Concentrate research and limit color matching (with
Munsell Color System) to the first original prime and finish
coats only on the ca. 1790's and ca. 1830's architectural fabric.

Interiors Concentrate research and limit color matching (with
Munsell Color System) to the first finish coat on the original,
(ca. 1790's and ca. 1830's), architectural fabric. List the
approximate number of later paint layers on top of the ca. 1830's
finishes and identify them by.color name only. Describe the
paint layering on any non-original features.

NOTE: The chemical composition and pigment identifications
of the paint films are not in the scope of this research.

The tools and equipment used for this investigation included a
stereo-zoom microscope (10 70 power), a surgical scalpel, the Munsell
Color Books, and a magnifying visor, etc. The small representative
samples which I took for analysis and color matching are included
(and identified) in the original copy of this report. The color match-
ing was done under natural (sky) lighting conditions and not under
artificial lighting which tends to adversely affect the perception of
the colors. I am aware of the nature of architectural paints to fade
in color with age; therefore, during my investigation I attempted to
find the cleanest and brightest samples possible for use in color
matching. Where I could not find the best color samples, I estimated
a color slightly lighter and brighter to compensate for yellowing of
oil mediums and darkening of pigments due to age etc.

My evaluation of findings is presented here in an area by area
and layer by layer (prime and finish coats) description. I must
reiterate that my conclusions are based on the evidence which I was
able to obtain by investigating as many "test areas" as feasible.
This type of investigation is somewhat analogous to "archeology above
ground." There are implicit limitations here because the research
does not constitute nor signify a complete "excavation." I also
caution against holding present conclusions as absolute because the
possibility of human error always exists within a fluctuating area
of uncertainty.1

1Karl Friedrich Gausss "The Gaussian Curve"
Werner Heisenbergs "The Principle of Uncertainty"














The colors of the original paint films are named according to
the National Bureau of Standards Color Name Charts and The Munsell
Color System. I use them both for the purpose of describing
color in a more standard and universal way. The Munsell Color
System "identifies color in terms of three attributes: hue,
value and chroma." Their color standards are "opaque pigmented
films on cast coated paper." The Munsell Color Company (which is
not a paint company) is presently located at 2441 North Calvert
Street in Baltimore, Maryland, 21218.

This report may be used to assist in the preparation of a
paint-color schedule for the restoration/preservation of these
18th and 19th century finishes. It might also serve as a source
for gaining more of an understanding of regional and period styles
of architectural decoration.

If at any time new evidence of any kind is discovered which
would amplify and/or change my findings and conclusions, I request
immediate notifcation for the purposes of further evaluation and
discussion.

The balustrade below this landing on down to the 1st floor

evidence although most has been stripped and the wood
recoated with varnish. This evidence; however, is not
necessarily conclusive that all fabric is of the sane period
although it suggests that it is.

Q. Wood Trim: Main House 2nd Floor Gallery Wood Flooring
(Sample #16).

No original or older paint evidence survives on this flooring.
Only 2 layers of 20th c paint exist a gray and a brown.
I will not speculate on the possibilities of the flooring on the
galleries being painted originally (either 18th c or mid 19th c)
because not enough proven evidence has been found on other build-
ings to substantiate either possibility.

The same evidence is on this flooring as described in EXT-Q.

NOTE: The many layers on this door arean indication of two
possibilities. One, all the other trim was painted
these colors but in the 1930's they were scraped off.
Two, there was some type of enclosure near this door
which kept it apart from the rest of the room.

GENERAL NOTES


1. The term "original wood trim" refers to wood fabric which dates
from ca. 1790's through the 1830's renovation.

2. All 1830's grained surfaces should have the later layers of paint
carefully removed in a large enough area to expose the original
to determine its color and character.

3. The exterior wood trim which is not especially mentioned was
either not original or all of the original paints had either
been stripped or weathered off.



























CONCLUSIONS


EXTERIOR

The remaining 18th c. trim indicates that it was all painted a bluish
gray. The ca. 1830's colors were: doors 3B, 3C & 4A/- grained; stair-
case grained; underside of 2nd floor gallery roof unpainted;
gallery flooring undeterminable; weatherboards on 2nd floor west
wing gable white; all other wood trim: 5 Y 9/1; stucco walls of
2nd floor gallery area 10 R 7/6; all other stucco white; shutter -
blinds undeterminable (again, I recommend a dark green for this).


INTERIOR

Room #2: .The ca. 1830's colors are: Mantlepiece black all other
wood trim 2.5 Y 8.5/2; plaster white.

Rooms #3 & 4: The ca. 1830's colors are: doors: grained; door and
window trim; sash and mantlepiece 2.5 Y 8.5/2; plaster white.

NOTE: Baseboard colors will have to be determined from other rooms.
