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.
