Thanks Don

I could only get onionskin paper on a pad rather than for a printer but I tried 
it anyway. It printed OK, and is significantly better than normal printer 
paper, but is still quite grainy/papery with the back lighting.

So I'm still looking.

I would try 'onion skin' paper, or very translucent paper which could be made 
even LESS opaque by rubbing it with OIL.
