Info

Fabriano Artistico watercolour 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 watercolour 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 watercolour, tempera, gouache, acrylic, ink, charcoal, graphite and drawing. It is also suitable for printmaking.

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 watercolour or coloured 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.

Not what it used to be. Don't waste your money.

This paper is the worst. It used to be the best on the market but they fooled with the manufacturing process and now it's worthless. Saunders is what I recommend. Arches isn't too bad.

A superb surface, it stretches well and doesn't pill on erasing.

Excellent paper. I use for coloured pencil drawings and although smooth, there is a hint of texture that works really well. I won't use anything else now.

Requested the paper to be cut in half to give me 20 sheets and it arrived well packaged. Really pleased with this paper for use with watercolour paints - I did also stretch it beforehand but had no buckling or problems with the paper which was exactly what I wanted.

Have used Fabriano Artistico HP many times in the past, I really like the effects you can get using fluid watercolour on this paper, also salt effects can be good and the use of clingfilm gives great striations when used with more sedimentary colours. Using Extra White gives watercolour even more glow, especially when painting glazes.

Not as good since they make the paper with the new technology.

This new batch of paper is very different to the last batch I had. I have tried with four different brands of coloured pencils and cannot gett layers with any of them. It is very felt like and does not accept OMS without bleeding.

I like this because of the weight and the colour. Although the surface is a bit rough compared to Classico 5, I like this and use this regularly.

Review

This is lovely paper. I use it for figure studies at a weekly class and find that water soluable crayons (Caran D'ache Neo colour II) glide over it beautifully. I can then create a wash from the crayon on its own or with extra watercolour paint for contrast.

A very good all rounder for the watercolourist.

Review

The paper was terribly crinkled when it arrived. The edges of the box were mashed which in turn mashed the edges of the paper. Also, there is a large bend down the middle of the paper as if some one had tried to bend the box and/or a heavy object had been set on the middle of the box causing it to bend in the middle. I am going to attempt a recovery on the paper by ironing it with a hot steam iron. The paints arrived in great shape. I will be giving them a workout in the next week. All the best to you.

Review

This paper can be excellent and it can be rubbish. The paper is very inconsistent. When it performs well, it is one of the best papers around. When it performs badly, it is a highly frustrating experience. It is impossible to tell whether you've got a good sheet or a bad sheet before you start painting, by which time you've spent an hour doing a drawing, which is then wasted. Blocks and loose sheets show the same problem. Different sheets in the same block can perform very differently. Personally I think the problem is due to inconsistent sizing. Some years ago the sizing was changed from gelatin to pva. The experts at Fabriano say they cannot investigate unless I provide serial numbers, but of course the blocks don't have serial numbers and the only way to get a serial number for loose sheets is to buy a pack of 10 sheets, which is not a risk I am willing to take. With bad sheets, the paint doesn't seem to go down as smoothly, as if the paper is resisting the paint. The paint often dries unevenly with nasty water marks. With good sheets, the paint goes down smoothly and there are no nasty watermarks. The difference might be a bit subtle for some people, but if you use this paper a lot you will soon learn the difference.

Well packaged and great service with the paper cutting to half imperial and quarter imperial too! Can't wait to use it and to buy more of it!

Review

It's a big spend but worth every penny. A perfect quality paper for detailed botanical work in pencil, coloured pencil and watercolour. Less suitable for a looser technique like wet in wet. Watch out for the watermark which seems to be on the wrong side of the paper. There is a definite difference between the two sides. My favourite paper and big sheets offer plenty of scope. Bit peeved the price was reduced just after I had bought a pack....

My all time favourite products are; Fabriano watercolour papers and White Nights Watercolours. The Fabriano papers are so well made from cotton rag, they work well whatever techniques you employ. I have tried most other makes but always come back to this one. The St Petersburg White Nights w/c paints are rich and creamy. I find they seem to last so well and are very economically priced. Love both products and would highly recommend.Trish Campbell

Excellent company. On-time delivery. 2 of the 5 sheets of paper were bent upon arrival, however. This is not very important to me since I am using thick acrylics on the paper, but perhaps it would not have gotten bent if it were packed seperately from the other items.
