Fabriano 5 paper has had a slight texture change.
This will be of interest to artists who choose it for its ultra smooth surface.
Fabriano 5 paper is designed for watercolour painting and lithography printing, but can also be used for tempera, charcoal, graphite, wax, pastel and calligraphy. It is immensely popular product with watercolour artists and printmakers alike.
Recently there has been a slight change to the texture of Fabriano 5 paper that might be noticed by artists who choose it for its exceptionally smooth surface, notably botanical watercolour painters. It is now slightly less smooth. Most artists will still find the surface texture very good for their work. The colour and composition has not changed.
The Fabriano paper mill in Italy uses the same machine to produce other papers. We have been told that the texture change of Fabriano 5 is the result of some changes to the machine, designed to make the production of a variety of papers more efficient.
