Soot on wall painting

From: Barbara Cerrina <nina>
Date: Wednesday, November 18, 1998
We need to clean a ceiling painted with tempera that is actually
covered with a thick lay of soot. The soot was recently provoked by
a fire in which different synthetic materials were burnt. The
problem is that the colors of the painting are sensitive to water
and so it is difficult to use water-base solvents. Does any body
have any suggestion to give us?
