    Hi Guys,

    I'm running out of H&S airbrush paper No4 350x500mm and I know Schoellershammer 250 g/sqm is another great paper but I need to order overseas and it is expensive.

    Any other good and cheaper alternatives ? I can get Canson here but not sure what exactly.

    If you have a bunch of stuff to order maybe you could use flycrates or something like that?

    Go to terraslate.comand have them send you the free sample pack and see if you like it, if you do then buy some there I have 30 sheets of it as I love the stuff!

    The H&S #4 paper is Schoellershammer #4 which is 4G. The Canson XL Bristol is also nice but not very resistant to scratching and you can not get it 100% clean when erasing.

    Has anyone try to use acrylic transparent base or acrylic pouring medium (which I belive is almost the same, also much cheaper), as a primer over bristol paper, for scratching and erasing purposes? I found that cheap glossy pouring medium from my local art store works fine as a transbase with createx paint. Should i expect any issues?

    I've used liquitex varnish in that fashion without issue....it's not as good as synthetic paper but it does work.

    I used to spray a rattle can clear on my paper before using it and it worked well for me,And was a lot faster dry time

    I found that varnish in my store cost about 10$, while pouring medium is less than 2$. I Will give a chance to my pouring medium, and let you know how it performs as a primer.
