Default A Source for tissue, and... questions about tissue

I was in The Container Store with my wife this evening and there was some very interesting tissue for sale besides Sherwin Williams Exterior White. There was a nice yellowish linen color, a light linen color, forest green, a chocolate, sky blue (a bit too blue for Hellblau 72 for WW2) and a silver, which opens up some interesting possibilities if it will work for modeling. Has anyone tried this stuff?

Does anyone know of a source for a German lozenge pattern printing which will work for the old smaller ~16"-17" span Guillows? I know there are different patterns and upper surfaces differed from lower, but for standoff scale flying models I am not particular.

Some of the FF rubber power guys print the lozenge pattern and other graphic on tissue with ink-jet printers.

I haven't kept up with the appropriate websites to DL the patterns, but sholdn't be hard to find.

Griff...

Take a look at this:

I know one guy who has used it......he's really old school but likes this stuff...less messy and pretty strong. He has also painted it with water based acrylic's (air brushed)......he has his own templates for patterns.
