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.
All packs of paper* are supplied in the following options as regards size:
|Pack Size||Inches||CM||No. Sheets|
Please note: that if the paper is cut then there will no longer be deckled edges on all four sides. When the paper is cut, in half, there will be 3 deckle edges and when the paper is cut, in quarter, there will be 2 deckle edges.
Finally somewhere that sells Fabriano Artistico HP in the UK! Love this paper. Cracks when folded dry, but run a damp brush along the line before folding and it's superb for bookmaking. Barely wrinkles. Love it. Klair Scattergood (Newcastle Under Lyme, United Kingdom) on 20 May 2012
Since using Fabriano Artistico Rough 300lb, my work has dramatically changed. My landscapes are more free. I love the quality of this heavyweight paper, the way the paint and water soak into it. I love the changes that take place over a day or so whilst the painting dries - so the unpredictability has become part of the process. E N Madder (Huntingdon, United Kingdom) on 11 Jul 2013
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.
