Re: Glassine

I wouldn't worry about using glassine as an interleaf, but
I would not use buffered sheets of anything to interleaf art
work because the buffering compounds are fine abrasives.

Furthermore, some pigments/dyes are pH sensitive and if they
are stable in a slightly acid condition (and many are) they
may change color as they interact with a buffering compound.
