Parchment paper works pretty good in a pinch. My favorite store, WalMart is quite reasonable.:)

Josie, glassine is a good idea but if I'm not going to store my painting under it for years I just use plain old newsprint paper. I tape it down over the surface of the fomecore, on which I've mounted my painting, and then I can store it flat or vertically.

I also tape my painting inside a spiral-bound newsprint pad so that I have a traveling portfolio. I've sold paintings from it often. I just make sure to mount a painting on every other page so that I can pull out the cover sheet when I sell the painting, and it's ready to go.

Hmmmm, none of this is really on topic! Oh well... just let me ramble.

Sounds a good idea Dee....... but, Id be worried that the print/ink would come off onto the pastel

Oh no, not newspaper, newsPRINT, which is like manila colored paper... I wouldn't use anything printed either. Is that another one of those cultural terms? Like I had no idea what cartridge paper was...
