memedumpster That's every single video on poeTV (every single video in the world if you're American), but this is still neat.
chairsforcheap OH shit i didn't even start this video but i'm so behind the proprietary poetv video title movement
CornOnTheCabre The idea of a new "series" reminds me: is there any chance of/movement towards starting a POEtv synchtube? it seems like a natural progression...
Binro the Heretic The first time I saw this sort of gilding was on a PBS show about the restoration of an art museum in Europe that had been damaged by bombs in WWII.
I watched them repair dozens of little wooden cherubs, carefully apply the gold leaf and reinstall the little guys at the tops of marble columns.
I was impressed at the skill, but also more than a little disappointed as I had always assumed decorations like that were made of solid gold.
In my defense, I was only ten.
SteamPoweredKleenex Plaster restoration is also amazing to watch. A lot of crown molding isn't wood, but plaster. It's thrown into the corner where the wall meets the ceiling, then some guy with a more apparent skill in his arm than a major-league pitcher takes a trowel that shapes the plaster into a "carved wood" shape at the same speed a normal mortal would use to draw a line with a Sharpie.
I still don't get how those guys could make whole walls and ceilings flat using only a wet plank of wood with a handle on it, but they can.
