Fabriano Artistico watercolour paper is mould made, produced with 100% cotton, 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. Traditional white, without optical bleaching.
Two deckle edged and watermarked "FABRIANO+ARTISTICO" on the short side. Short grain. The high quality and ample offer of this paper satisfied the requirements of all professional artists and the most demanding amateurs.
Ideal for watercolour, tempera, gouche, acrylic, link, charcoal, graphite and drawing. It is also suitable for printmaking.
Fabriano Artistico is available in ROUGH, COLD PRESSED (NOT) and HOT PRESSED (HP). The rough is the roughest paper, NOT is a medium texture and HP is smooth. Due to surface changes in 2016 the HP may not be suitable for detailed botanical work.

Please note: that if the paper is cut it will change the number of deckle edges in the sheet.
I use Fabriano Artistico 300 for my landscapes. I love the texture, the way the watercolour floats and then sinks into the paper. It can take a lot of water, never wrinkles. I watch the way the painting dries and swear that there are changes over days - as though the painting has a life of its own. It's such a perfect paper.

The smooth surface is ideal for my preferred medium which is acrylic inks. It doesn't curl or warp even with quite wet media washes. No stretching required. Doesn't bleed so detail work isn't a problem.. It's a cracking surface to work on. Paul Skelton (Keighley, United Kingdom) on 15 Feb 2015
"For a painting that requires details, the best!
For a painting that mixes watercolors and gouache, superbe!
Almost 800 years producing one of the best paper of the world." Silvia Tessuto (Sao Paulo, Brazil) on 8 Aug 2012
