Info

News update: Fabriano Artistico watercolor paper has had a slight texture change. This will be of interest to artists who choose it for its ultra smooth surface.

Fabriano Artistico watercolor paper is mould made and is produced with 100% cotton. It is chlorine and acid free, guaranteeing long conservation and inalterability over time. The paper is sized both internally and externally, making it ideally absorbent and retaining its nature unaltered even if scratched. This paper is traditional white, without optical bleaching.

Fabriano Artistico watercolor papers have two deckle edges and are watermarked ‘FABRIANO+ARTISTICO’ on the short grain side. The high quality and ample offer of this paper satisfies the requirements of all professional artists and the most demanding amateurs.

Ideal for watercolor, tempera, gouache, acrylic, ink, charcoal, graphite and drawing. It is also suitable for printmaking.

Glued on all 4 edges (after painting is dry gently remove top painted sheet with butter knife along edges from inside gap). NOTE: image is of NOT (cold pressed) block, please check description for texture you require.

We offer a paper cutting service on all our watercolor papers. To cut your paper to half imperial (22" x 15") or quarter imperial (11" x 15") please state this in the order comments section of the checkout process, which you will find immediately below the payment details.

Fabriano Artistico paper has changed permanently because of changes to the machine that makes it. The surface texture is a bit less smooth. The manufacturer does not believe the change is significant, they feel the paper is still within their allowed parameters. But a number of artists have found the change significant enough that it interferes with their work. They are usually artists who make very precise work and need to be able to control fine lines, so most often botanical artists using watercolor or colored pencil. Since we have made customers aware of the changes to this paper, please be aware that if you wish to return the paper to us you will need to pay the postage costs for the return.

Pebeo masking fluid is excellent - the best I've used to date. I am still trying out watercolour exercises to evaluate how they perform but I can see a use for both of them in my painting projects.

Updated review on this product. After using it for some time now I've found that it's perfect for gouache but the glue is still not strong enough for watercolour painting. I still experience the sheets lifting from the block and coming loose completely with watercolour,

Lovely paper, although when I opened the well sealed pack I was surprised to find that the top sheet had dirty fingerprints on it. Most of the sheet was still useable, though.

Block of Fabriano Extra white is brilliant to work with. Because of being glued on four side, I don’t have to stretch the paper and tape it to a desk or a piece of wood.

I'm normally a dedicated "Arches" paper user, so I decided to try one of the competition papers, as I wanted something that would react to the image I'm trying to create etc. So far, so good! There's more one needs to try before I can pass judgement. Suffice it to say, I'm very encouraged to say the least.

This watercolour paper is perfect for painting watercolour flowers. It is very smooth and absorbs the paint beautifully. It is easy to get very smooth gradients in the washes with this paper.

Review

very good smooth paper but probably too this as it pulls away from the block when wet which rather defeats having a block.

Good quality paper, now better than the quality of the big sheets which aren't what they used to be. Will use the blocks when I can now.

This was a gift, but I know that my father loves this as it saves him time stretching paper for watercolour painting. I am happy to buy him Fabriano as I have used it myself for printmaking .

I purchased this block and the NOT surface one, for two reason. Firstly, that i am awaiting a house move, so don't have the space to paint on, or store the full imperial sheets that i plan to, but also that these blocks are already 'stretched' for use -again a space issue. Secondly, i wanted to test out this brand of paper, before committing to the expense of larger sheets. I am so far very happy with this block, and am confident that when the time comes to order the imperial sheets, that this is the paper i wish to use... The colour is not a startling 'white', but definately a lighter shade from traditional papers -fantastic for transparent glazes where you want the light to reflect through, and retained whites to be 'white' -all arrived in perfect condition, very well protected by plenty of packaging, and very quick delivery. These came in the 2nd delivery of 2 i have so far made, and i shall be ordering again soon.

This is a good paper. There are two small minus only. First of them is it is impossible to wash the paint to its original white color (in case of mistake). Second is the drying is quickly.

It's a beautiful paper surface, and works well with my graphite drawings. I like that the sheets are secured at the sides so they don't cockle on the occasions that I apply water to the surface.

One end of the packaging had come open in transit, had taken a photograph of the damage in anticipation any of the smaller items may have fallen out. Thankfully nothing had. Please use more tape !
