Try Cornwall Model Boats (search for 'sanding sealer') or any nearby model shop stocking stuff for model aircraft where you should be able to get the gunk that's used for filling/sealing balsa wood. If pigment is not a problem you could try what I used back in the late '50s (!!) and that was cellulose paint (Duco) into which I added regular (not scented) talcum powder. Worked a treat and that was on an all-balsa speed control line model!
My other - flippant - suggestion would be to come down to South Africa where we can get cellulose sanding sealer by the proverbial gallon!
Hope you come right,

OK Robin thanks for reply, the model shops I have tried here will not post it out, I think there is some new law? JBD
