Hello. I am hoping someone can answer an odd question for me about gesso. I am going to repair a small tear in a very old antique oil painting which also has pin holes. I do not know if the painting had an application of a gesso type material before they painted the fabric. I was thinking I would apply a thin coat of gesso over the entire back of the painting after the patch repair. This painting hangs in a garden restaurant and the light shining thru shows the pin holes. Has anyone ever applied gesso to the back of a painting? Any other suggestions or thoughts will be greatly appreciated
