    Don't know about the varnish, but...

    Acrylics are copolymer plastics. The surface has a tendency to stick to surfaces when it's under pressure. Solution? try cutting a roll of regular kitchen wax paper to a 1/4" smaller in both dimensions than your pages. Stuff this pile in an envelope and gumband it to the back of your sketch book. When you do a page in acrylic, just pop a sheet of the wax paper in after the paint's dry. DO NOT STORE the wax paper IN your blank pages. It'll cause problem when you try to draw with any water-based media.

    You can also use thin sheets of poly plastic, like from those slightly textured poly pockets that offices use to store documents in. Poly will NOT stick to any thing, even if you want it to. It might make a snicky noise when you lift it, but it wont harm the acrylic. And it won't cause any plastic migration problems like acetate or vinyl would.

    I use the blue silicon treated sheets from old rub down type I used to use when I ran my agency, but they're all at least 20 years old. That stuff isn't very common anymore because of computers...I have a cache of about 3,000 sheets stored in one of my studios.

    The parchment paper that's sold for baking on is similar to those old Prestype backing sheets. You could try that. Also, matte acrylics will be less "sticky" than gloss ones.

    Excellent, Tristan. I should have remembered those since I was a baker's assistant when I was a kid...it solves most of the wax problem you would get with wax paper.
