Looking for gesso


Recommended Posts

Hola, I`m looking for raw gesso (yeso) preferably in the form of pure hydrated calcium sulfate but will take anything that is called yeso here.  Know where I can find it? Gracias.

I bought yeso for wall texture use at Lopez near Telmex in Ajijic. Probably any hardware store sells it. 

Thank you!

Cal is the same

Well, not quite.  Both are calcium compounds.   Cal is calcium hydroxide (CaOH2). Yeso or gypsum is calcium sulfate (CaSO4).  I`ve tried cal for my work (coating amate "paper") and it is not satisfactory.
