Fabriano Artistico Watercolor Paper, Traditional White, 140lb, Hot Press, 22" x 30", 10 Pack

Backed by Fabriano's seven centuries of paper making expertise, Fabriano Artistico combines the best characteristics of the leading watercolor papers into one superior Italian-made paper. Exclusive to Fabriano is a new watercolor surface called Soft Press. It has an exquisite velvety texture that lies between traditional hot and cold press.

Nationally renowned watercolorist Catherine Anderson says, "Soft Press is outstanding! My washes go on smoothly, leaving no streaks, with very little buckling." Fabriano Artistico takes color beautifully, has excellent liftability and withstands scraping. In short, it's a friendly, forgiving sheet of exquisite beauty.

It is excellent for all water media, Printmaking, digital printing, pastels, charcoal, acrylics, and pen and ink. Traditional white is slightly off white and Extra White has a naturally bright white surface.

Quality
How would you describe the quality of this product?
This is a wonderful surface paper. I have been searching for a paper that had a surface in 300lb that was smoother than CP but not as smooth as HP. As a watercolorist that does multiple glazes this paper was wonderful. With regular HP it doesn't allow you to do too many multiple glazes without running into lifting. I do a lot of photorealistic still life's that have a lot of detail and this worked really well for me. Also lifting was easy because this paper is internally sized and then also externally sized which helps with scrubbing and lifting in areas. I would recommend......it does take a little time to get used to but worth the effort.

Overall Experience
What was your overall experience with this product?
Currently, Fabriano Artistico Extra White is my favorite paper for watercolor painting. I use it in rough and hot press finishes and love both. Rough has a nice pronounced tooth that makes for beautiful granulated washes and expressive drybrush. Hot press is receptive to ink and wash work, mixed media, and a variety of watercolor painting methods.
