Default Question on paper support

Do you know the kind of heavy paper that is grey and mat on one side, and white glossy on the other?

This is used for ET icon studies a lot, but not for the real thing. You have to be careful with it anyway, because it may be heavy but it is not rigid, of course.

Is there any way to avoid the bulcky and cumbersome panels? At least as long as I am experimenting with ET, because I can't do that on expensive panels, nor can I store them. I need something easier to deal with, cheaper, and, in the unlikely case case that one of my studies is decent enough, a support that will allow me to keep the painting.

Any ideas?

You can put a coat of rabbit skin glue over a piece of your favorite watercolor paper. Or try this "new" paper from Arches:
