The best paper for watercolor, colored pencil paintings!
from Ponchatoula, La
Comments about Fabriano Artistico Extra White Watercolor Paper:
I've tried most all brands of cotton papers for my watercolor and colored pencil work. I was always been a bit disappointed as most all of the papers I've used don't hold up well to multiple watercolor washes or colored pencil layering. I've typically used cold press papers for watercolor and Bristol for colored pencil work. I now use Fabrino soft press and hot press papers respectively. I find with both mediums, Fabrino papers are far superior.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Fabriano Artistico extra white watercolor paper
from Indian River, Michigan
I had never used this product before. I usually use Arches watercolor paper. I really liked this paper. Will use again.
I love this Paper
I do mostly watercolor, but also like to do pen and ink work with watercolor washes. This paper works great for both.
Nice paper for colored pencil
By Felix the Artist
from Ann Arbor MI
This is the best paper I have found for colored pencil work. It seems to have just the right tooth. It is also very nice for watercolor. If anyone has recommendations for other papers to try, I would be interested, but this has been my favorite for years.

New Favorite Paper
I have used Arches watercolor paper exclusively for almost ten years but I recently decided that I wanted to explore my options. After reading a ton of reviews, I decided to try Fabriano artistico. The reviews I read were so right! The paper has a superior texture, in my opinion. I bought the cold press and soft press papers. The soft press is an exciting surprise and turned out to be something I didn't know I wanted! Compared to Arches- Fabriano paper feels more velvety and elegant. Arches always felt like it had too much sizing/ was too hard. I'm excited about the 200lb paper and I might even try their hotpress paper as well! The watermark is kind of gigantic but I don't have a problem with it- I just thought I'd mention it. I highly recommend this paper and look forward to getting more. Also, I need to mention that since I mixed and matched my paper order a couple of the top sheets came dinged but blick fixed the problem in record time and sent me two replacement sheets that were perfect!#sweepstake
ABSOLUTELY LOVE This Paper
By Mark T
This is my favorite watercolor paper to use for drawing. It has one side with a very nice 'patterned" tooth, which is great for when I draw drapery; and another side that has a random tooth for which I like to use for nearly everything else. I actually discovered this paper about four years ago and bought only a couple of sheets just to see how it performed versus the other HIGHLY recommended papers I was reading about. This paper is just fantastic, in my opinion.The MAIN reason I like this paper over ARCHES is simply because of the watermark. FABRIANO has only ONE side of the paper that contains a watermark, which is just a tad over an inch in size and that makes it great to use as border. ARCHES has TWO very large watermarks on two sides and they are OPPOSITE each other. This factor alone allows FABRIANO to have a greater surface area which one can utilize.
The Fabriano Paper Mill was founded in 1264 and has been credited with many inventions and advancements in the field of paper making. Today, artists can choose from a wide variety of 100% cotton, archival watercolor papers in many different formats and surfaces.
