Fabriano Artistico watercolour paper is a high-quality paper that is specifically designed for various artistic applications. Here are some key features and characteristics of this paper:

  1. Mould Made: The paper is made using a traditional papermaking method called mould making. This process produces a consistent and smooth surface, ideal for artistic techniques like watercolor painting.
  2. 100% Cotton: The paper is composed of 100% cotton fibers, which are considered the best material for fine art papers due to their strength, durability, and ability to absorb water and pigments.
  3. Chlorine and Acid-Free: The paper is free from chlorine and acid, ensuring that it does not yellow or deteriorate over time. This feature is essential for maintaining the artwork’s quality and longevity.
  4. Internal and External Sizing: The paper is sized both internally and externally. Sizing is a treatment that enhances the paper’s ability to handle water and other media, making it ideally absorbent for various painting techniques.
  5. Scratch-Resistant: The paper retains its nature even if scratched, indicating its resilience and ability to withstand handling during the creative process.
  6. Traditional White: The paper is naturally white without the use of optical brightening agents. This ensures that the color of the paper remains stable and does not artificially change over time.
  7. Deckle Edges: The paper has two deckle edges, which are the natural, uneven edges of the paper, adding a touch of authenticity and character to the artwork.
  8. Short Grain: The paper’s grain direction is short, meaning the fibers run parallel to the shorter sides of the paper. This grain orientation is well-suited for certain artistic techniques.
  9. Versatile Use: Fabriano Artistico watercolour paper is suitable for various artistic media, including watercolor, tempera, gouache, acrylic, ink, charcoal, graphite, and drawing. Additionally, it can be used for printmaking.
