If you can not find a way to make the paper translucent/transparent like you want try printing two copies of the graphic and glue them back to back and trim as needed. Flip or mirror print one of the copies as necessary to match graphics. Any numbers or letters would need to be processed so they will be readable.

Start with bond paper and make it trasparent. It won't make it clear as glass.

You can get clear linseed oil, it's called purified or
Sun-Bleached.
I'm sure linseed oil would turn opaque over time, it takes a very long time to dry out.

I've used the address windows from envelopes (even junkmail and bills can be useful sometimes) for clear parts in model building sometimes.

I've used clear sheets designed for inkjet printers; Look for overhead projector transparencies, available at Walmart or office supply stores.

A couple of different brands are available, don't know if any is available for laser printers.

Mike,

There are, usually a bit thicker than the inkjet offers, but the bigger/well stocked office supply stores will have that

Hi Rick,

Yep, did a quick search. The laser ones have been designed for the higher temps. Quite a few brands for the overhead transparencies available still.
