Comments about Fabriano Artistico Extra White Watercolor Paper:
I don't like that the brand name is stamped on one of the papers where I'll be painting. It's going to show through and there are only two pieces of paper in the pack.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Paper that can take a lot of manipulation.
By Sarah Adkins SVFX
from Wichita Falls, TX
I was wary of paying the price until I began to experiment on it using colored pencils, airbrush, water soluble graphite, odorless paint thinner, battery operated erasers, kneadable eraser and more. No matter what instrument you use this watercolor paper can take it. I don't have issues with warping or buckling and I recommend making a small book from the paper so you can reference exactly which techniques you can use with it regarding the project. I really like this for the colored pencils I use and you can use a bone folder, tear it down to size, make a book and not waste one inch of this paper. Your technique book will look gorgeous too.I haven't used a wide range of watercolor papers but find the grain of this hot press is perfect for several layers of colored pencil, watercolor pencil, and airbrush paint while keeping it's fine tooth. Both the Traditional White and Extra White Hot Press look and perform as a top of the line product. When you look at what it's made of then it's no surprise and Fabriano is quality, so I'm glad I purchased it. It's archival quality so use it to keep your work preserved. I really like the fact that it comes in rolls too, so I'll be purchasing a roll later. I definitely would recommend this to anyone wanting to use it for colored pencil blending techniques, watercolor, airbrush, and water soluble graphite. I'll bet it works well with water soluble crayons but I only have the white Neocolor II crayon as part of a project and I haven't used it on this paper since it's white. I'm really satisfied with this paper and am glad it's not "all the same" as I hear some people complain about watercolor papers. I usually get stuck with the coarse cold press when what I really needed was hot press so I'm really glad I purchased tried this paper. There is no local store that carries this watercolor paper either, and since it's a professional grade product the hobbyist stores probably won't have it. Well worth the price and if you aren't sure, order a small block to experiment with. You'll be glad you did. I purchased a larger size because other people doing similar work wouldn't stop raving about Fabriano Watercolor Paper and I loved the way their work looks on it. This paper is high quality and consistent regardless of what you do to it so they have won over a new customer.
So glad to find this paper
I am a watercolor artist. I have always used arches paper, which is great. This however is better! Give it a try - worth the money.

Fabriano Artistico Extra White Watercolor Paper
from Point Reyes Station, CA
Thrilled to have so much beautiful paper. I use it for individual water colors and for artists books.Because it comes rolled it takes some time and patience to flatten it. I put smaller book pages in my press and for larger work I will soak it first. Something so pleasing about great paper. It makes the drawing. painting and printing better.Soft Erasor likes it too.

I really love the texture and bright white of this paper. It has a nice, smooth surface that works well for painting florals. I also love the size of this paper. Overall, I'm very pleased and will purchase this again.

I use this paper for hand made photography, it can withstand multiple soakings in water, with very little curling if any at all sometimes.
Consistent high quality paper, excellent for watercolors
Recommended by my watercolor teacher. Loved the paper and continue to use it.
Wonderful for Gum Bichromate Printing
By Alexandra the Purple One
from Jacksonville, AL
I use this paper for gum bichromate printing. I don't even have to shrink it--just put sizing on it. Dickblick never lets me down. Their packaging and service is better than any other out there. They're the only company you can confidently order PAPER from and not have to worry about a single crease or bend being in it.
I will buy this product again
from Louisville, Ky
I used the 3oolb weight and liked the way it works with the wet on wet technique, paint seemed to be a little more controllable.
