Subject: Gesso

Does anyone have any experience with securing lifting gesso and
paint layers back onto a wooden substrate.  We have a number of
wooden masks with large (1-2cm square) areas of lifting gesso. The
gap between the lifted layer and the wood is in places as wide as
2mm making simple consolidation inappropriate.
