This paste was used at last year's Nomadic Museum on pier 54. It adhered the tea paper to the giant walls at the entry. The paste, called Beva, is more commonly used by conservators because of its properties as a reversible adhesive.
It is heat activated. Material is covered with Beva and ironed to a surface to create adhesion and is ironed again to reverse adhesion. We've used it in small applications but wonder if it could be used to temporarily paper walls or other surfaces around the home. Does anyone have any experience with this?? -regina
