More guessing or imagining. Also further ambiguity ("correct"- right ? or seeking confirmation of your guess ? (from Cladking -a pretentious pseudo language studying, drip under pressure).

More ignorance and guessing.
What paint, as the stolen stuff was of insufficient quantity, and poor quality ! ?
Or new stuff somehow gained without destruction (in your ignorant imagination).
A near complete full test, is required to determine whether there is ANY organic material.
As Martin explained the method of collection by Gorlitz, rendered it useless anyway.
Still haven't read.
I was astonished about the way Dr. Görlitz took the samples. To use the carbon dating method it must be guaranteed that the sample is not contaminated by modern carbon. To do this samples are taken with sterile tools from locations below the surface. This is not possible in these chambers because the walls are covered in soot from the lamps and torches of the visitors of the last two centuries.
Also, the samples are normally put into a chemically inert container, i.e. glass tubes. Dr. Görlitz used bare hands and not sterilised tools to scrape the paint – into a textile cloth. Which was then transported in a plastic bag. This way any attempt to use the radio carbon method is futile.
Later pictures appeared showing the sample in a proper glass container, but the film sequences of the (now deleted) promotion video showed what really happened.

More ignorant guessing imagining and crackpot delusions.
The more you blather the bigger idiot you make of yourself.
