This frame’s a real fixer-upper

Even tho’ we don’t do restoration, we thought this video was pretty cool. It’s a behind the scenes look at how a frame is repaired in the Smithsonian American Art Collection. There’s a lot of skill involved here. The process itself, which uses sculpting and painting, is an art unto itself.
