I happened to be in Hobbycraft and notice they sold tissue at 99p for 5 sheets. Anyway I bought some and it is similar to Esaki lightweight tissue. It has good wet strength and reasonable shrink. I have used it with Eze Dope and Banana oil and the results are pretty encouraging. It is available in several colours including Silver. The silver is more expensive though, and feels a bit waxy, so may not work as well but I have not tried it yet.


BTW Als tissue has no wet strength - guess how I found out.

barry, I went to hobbycraft online store. entered tissue paper in the search but i only got various colours 5 for 89p or a pack of 20 (i presume assorted) for £1.79. Is this the same stuff you bought? hope so because I`m looking for a cheap source for my rubber jobs. keith
