printed oily paper shapes   (+3)  [vote for, against]
for transparency in a book or other /paper/journal/

grease or oil applied to the pages in certain aeas where some transparency is needed, then fixed/sealed onto it with something,rather that cutting out the paper and putting in transparent plastic

Does paper that's been greased stay clear after it is dried? If it does then croissant (the companies who make the transparent paper/plastic won't like this idea though).

It does stay translucent for a long time - cheap windows used to have oiled paper in them; you couldn't really see out but you had some daylighting indoors.
