BEVA GESSO is a highly elastic putty capable of following the movements of the substrate, thus solving an age old problem. Combining a compressible, inert mineral powder, oxidation inhibitors, UV stabilizers, a buffer to maintain a non-acidic pH and BEVA resins, CPC has formulated a stable gesso reversible with heat or with mild hydrocarbons solvents. BEVA GESSO adheres to wood, plastics, metals, paint, etc. It may be tinted with dry pigments. Smooth and flexible, it can be shaped or textured while wet or with heat when dry. Available as BEVA GESSO-p, fine textured (dries white in color) and BEVA GESSO-v, medium textured (dries beige in color). BEVA GESSO accepts all currently used media (oil, alcohol, or aqueous). Can be burnished and gilded. It is available in 8 oz. cans.
