Overdose 777 : You are amazing! I love your channel, I love your Instagram page, I adore your work and the way you treat every painting❤️ I can feel the soul that you put into every work of art that you restore and that’s really something special❤️ Thank you for letting us see a part of this.

ConRon : You say you keep them short because some is not interesting. Believe me, we all want these to be hours long if possible. Every detail is incredibly interesting.

Luna Red : I love how as a conservator you always have to think ahead when you do something. Like, "I'm doing this so in the future it'll be easier for another conservator."

David Sullivan : I think it’s so profound how intentionally impermanent the work of a conservator is. They actively make sure their life’s work can be undone by somebody else. Talk about a lack of ego

Devon Kryptonite : This video is unintentional ASMR.

lucksy bb : This is so deeply relaxing to watch. Thank you

Hexa Gonal : This is like Bob Ross but for CONSERVING amazing art.

Anaïs~JK : You have no idea how much I love watching you bring these paintings back to life. Your process and philosophy is absolutely enthralling.

Jolette Nieto : Quit making these videos so short , they are EXTREMELY interesting and we want to see MORE ALL OF IT if possible

DaichiXEdward : Ya'll are a couple of dirty swabs lol

John Logan : $40...incredible. Wonder what it's worth now?

Kara3516 : My favorite parts: cleaning the grime, and apply the varnish And also I like to see people cleaning dirt dust from buildings,car, etc with powerful water jet or something Does anybody have same this weird liking as mine? 🤚🏻

CatsForTheCatGod : I could watch these for hours

gorutomoca moca : At 9:36 is my favorite part of all the process. That sweet, short, "I am proud of my work" smile is the best. :-) ♥

Sandra Elena : if you ever did a live stream i would watch it start to finish

a random girl : Having a bit of a weird day, the fact that I wound up at fine art restoration is odd, but strangely calming? As in it is so satisfying to watch him work, but really not usually my cup of tea? Nobody will read this comment anyway, hi.

Andrea P : Because of your work, I am looking into and have become fascinated with the idea of becoming an art restorer/conservator and/or museum technician . So thank you for that! I have often thought about emailing you to ask you this, but you are Probably pretty busy so I will just ask here. What degrees do you have/wish you had that are important for your career? What is the official title for your career? What did you major in? I’m looking into college stuff and I haven’t been able to find information about a (for lack of a better word) “modern” art restoration/conservator. Thank you for what you do!

Waynimations : I hope this channel explodes because you do beautiful work

Aidan Sage : am i the only one who thinks his voice is shockingly similar to steve carrells

That Hoser Canadian : Keep in mind I know nothing about art, however I do know a bit about guns so this is how I imagined this went down (Government Funded Party) Art Collector and Preserver: Mmm, yes. I recently acquired this fantastic piece by Reginald Marsh DOD Employee: Oh really? I love his work. Art Collector: Yes, however I need to figure out a good way to preserve it... DOD Employee: Hey! I have a great idea! We soak our beautiful guns like the M1 Garand in Lin Seed Oil! Use that on your painting! Art Collector: Great Scotts! That sounds like a brilliant idea. And now after writing this I realized this joke is completely stupid but I've spend too much time writing this, so enjoy my cancer.

Meringue : These videos are so poignant. Visualising how time takes its toll on things and seeing the love and care that you pour into the restorations of these works is powerful. I love being taken through the process and the before and afters are incredibley striking

Dan B : Would you take an appentice?

Aliya Russell : do you think in your professional opinion, the mona lisa should be restored?

Klaudia Maria Lewicka : I adore your videos! You are an artist, just like those people who painted these artworks you conserve. It's a pleasure to watch you working. Please keep up with this amazing content. Kind regards!

Saba Tarannum : I was waiting for the narrated version!! Thank you!!

Tony : I always thought painting should be left as they are but after watching your videos I realized it's only after you restore them, they are as they were/are. The Mona Lisa needs one hell of a cleaning.

Dembai : Is there any way you could do a long video showing just the cleaning, with express 'do not do this at home, I'm not telling you the chemicals for a reason, if you have a work of art you think is dirty contact your local restorer'? ...because I really would love to watch the whole process, even without any talking. Because even though this clearly takes a huge amount of time, the time would soothe my soul. I love your videos, and I understand there will always be a concern that someone is going to ruin a painting. But showing the process (even though you never show how the solvents are made) would be awesome. Make it into ten or twenty minute clips and monitize them all. You'll make money hand over fist. I will bring in all the weirdos who like to watch things being cleaned. Please for the love of beautiful paintings! Full length conservation videos!

Gary Winthorpe : Like asmr

Nicole G : I have a question, do you ever take cases where big chunks of paint are missing? In most of these I’ve seen, you’ve had to repaint small areas as big a what looks to be the size of a lime. But when it comes to something bigger, do you restore them? I’m wondering because at what point is too big to where you’re pretty much recreating it

Jumping Beanz : ‘Dirty Swab’ sounds like an insult.

Alberto Barrientos : amazing as always, keep uploading please.

chru cas : Wonderful, amazing, ingeniuos well done showing fine craftsmanship.

Sai Padma Priya : You should consider livestreaming a restoration! I'd love to watch

MrLol07 : Love the voice over, never change this format, works like magic

Wild Heart. : Wow, I did not mean to sit here and watch this entire video but you just captivated me.

Kristen Noelle : This is the most fascinating and wonderful're an artist in your own right!

alexwellis : This is where I come after hearing stories about bogus art "conservation" efforts (i.e. woman who painted over Jesus, ancient wall mural in China gaudily painted over, etc.). This restores my faith in humanity's respect for art.

Cinnamon : What I like about the internet is that everything can be documented for a possibly infinite amount of time. If someone was going to restore a piece of art in decades if not centuries from now, they could look up either the original artist or the restorer before them to find out how things were intended to look like and watch every process they went through if documented. Information can get lost over time, especially with old paintings, so this could be a great way to save progress.

Harlan Guthrie : 3:28 *A c o u p l e o f d i r t y s w a b s*

Flutterbree : How do we know what is and isn't harmful to a painting after restoration? Have these methods been tested by 100 years of wear and tear? I'm not saying that sarcastically, I'm genuinely curious to find out more info.

rkbiker89 : Can you please include the date of which these paintings are all made? I can't tell if they're 100 years old or 500 years old or made a week ago

TravelMind : Im not into art. I have nno clou how i've got here but that was very interesting.

AnonymouslySalty : Some people say the original art shouldn’t be tempered with, and generally, I agree. But your videos make me realize these works have far life underneath the dirt, and oil, and grime.

Auderpop : I can’t imagine how much work it takes to do this kind of job. You have to be a great painter, know what chemicals and substances to use, know what to do for tears, cracking, and any number of possible states a painting might be in. Really impressive!

Garbanzo123 : How’s that thermoplastic adhesive reversed? I mean is it even possible? It gets soaked into te canvas i don’t see how you completely reverse that.

Lilly : I could watch these videos all day

Emma Goudie : Heaven! Thank you so much for this narrated version. Very informative and very enjoyable. Your work is wonderful. More please! <3

King Milanovic : Mesmerising.....thank you.

Lacy Monster : My child is really artsy and I am not. Your channel has opened up the reality that ‘art’ isn’t just poor artists struggling to express themselves. I never really viewed art as a science until your channel and it’s really helped me connect with my child.

privateviewing : These types of videos are therapeutic
