I am removing my drawings from my sketchbook, I am finding that a lot of graphite is sticking to backside page n dulling appearance and I am sure over time will smudge.  I have put them in a cardboard box with wax paper between them . Does anybody know if the wax paper will ruin drawings being stored this way  :confused:

Best to use tracing paper, grease proof paper, or glassine(sp). The graphite won't stick to it. I have been storing some drawings using tracing paper for 5 years with no problem.
