Info

Fabriano 5 is an exceptionally smooth paper made by the Italian company Fabriano. This paper is surface-sized and watermarked with the Fabriano logo. Fabriano 5 paper is mould-made from 50% cotton and 50% carefully selected raw materials. The absence of acid guarantees excellent permanence and resistance to ageing.

This paper is designed for watercolour painting and lithography printing, but can also be used for tempera, charcoal, graphite, wax, and pastel. It is an immensely popular product with watercolour artists and printmakers alike.

In 2016, Fabriano 5 paper was changed permanently because of adjustments to the machine that makes it. The surface texture is a bit less smooth and the sizing has altered slightly. The manufacturer does not believe the change is significant; they feel the paper is still within their allowed parameters. However, 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 such as 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.

Great value and really lovely paper to work with. I use with polychromo pencils and I think it's an excellent surface to work on - smooth and bright. Also really handy that it can be cut down pre-postage as it makes it easier to cut down to the size I need and also for storage.

Fabriano 5 is excellent for drawing and fluid acrylics - as a watercolour paper it requires careful handling - it is not as tough as a specialised water colour paper.

I love all Fabriano papers. I am using this in conjunction with Jean Haines new book on light and shade in watercolour and it is giving some lovely results of paintings based on photos I took of blackberries in hedgerows.

I use this paper for colored pencil and watercolor pencil work and I think it's excellent. I also love Jackson's for offering a cutting service for these papers. I don't have a lot of storage space so I was overjoyed when my pre-cut quarter imperial arks arrived. So tightly and neatly packaged. Thank you!

I actually meant to order hot press but that was my mistake, didn't realise there was Fabriano 5 NOT as well as I came to the loose pages via the spiral notebooks page which were hot press so I stupidly assumed that all Fabriano 5 was hot press...

Fabriono was recommended to me as a great surface for graphic pencil. Certainly I would recommned it for robustness and would use it regularly.
