Hello everyone, I'm looking for clear Super 8 leader for painting onto. Does anyone have any for sale?
Many thanks,

Processed or unprocessed film stock can be cleared with bleach, should you not find an answer to your quest.

Browse The leader page you’ll see that clear is there and is moderately priced I recently ordered from these guys and they were very good very fast and the film later they shipped me is perfect no problems running it through the machine

If you click on the option for a color you will see clear is listed hope this helps you

@Lydia: excellent advice from other users, but since you live in UK, maybe you'd better buy from:

https://www.gaugefilm.co.uk/store/p29/Super_8_White_Acetate_Film_Leader.html#

or

https://www.widescreen-centre.co.uk/super-8-and-standard-8-leader.html

Once I also bought on ebay, on this store, which has a leader not pure white, but cream:
