My first experience with this paper
By gandy dancer
from Dallas, TX
Comments about Fabriano Artistico Traditional White Watercolor Block:
I cannot speak with authority about this paper because I am a newbie to this medium (WC), hence the 4 stars. However, I find no fault with this paper and in my "beginner's" experience it performs as well as Arches, which I understand is the "standard by which all paper is measured. So, for a beginner, it does a great job.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I will buy this product again for sure!
By Laura the draftswoman
This paper is no longer available in my country so I choose to import it from Blick Art Materials, the price point was really fair and shipping cost were also a very good deal.The product came in perfect conditions and it only took about 3 days to arrive to my country.

My style of watercolor requires a very white paper, that accepts my detailed brushwork cleanly, yet is forgiving of my blunders. i am a paper-colic so the smooth hand, deckled edge ant to my end watermark are an enhancement to my framed paintings.

poorly made, falls apart
from Loveland, CO
I don't know why other reviewers give this so many stars, the 9x12 watercolor block I purchased is very poorly made, maybe I got a defective one. As I paint on the paper it starts to curl up and detaches from the rest of the block. It should stay down until I take a knife and detach it. Also, Fabriano should put a marking to show where to insert the blade to detach the paper.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: We're sorry to hear that the glued has failed on the block you received, and we're happy to help you with this. One of our Customer Care Agents will be following up via email to assist you.

fabriano watercolor block
i have always loved fabriano paper
My favorite water color paper
By Sarah from the north
I use water color paint and sometimes pencil or inks. I can be very controlled when I need to but the paper allows the watercolor to do it's our beautiful thing and is tough enough that I can lift it off if I don't like it.
By Scratchy Pin
Paper is tough almost like cloth the way it absorbs paint. Color lifts are pretty easy.
Beautiful surface for waterxolors or colored pencils
First Blick has the best price on Fabriano Watercolor Cold Press and Hot Press blocks. I bought the Blick to be able to avoid stretching while I am just starting out. I really like how the hot Press accepts colored pencil and it's a beautiful smooth paper for watercolors. I am happy.
One of the Best Papers Ever!
By Conjure Fine Art
from Vancouver WA
Really great all around paper! I use the smooth hot press extra white in 140 or 300lb. I primarily use it for colored pencil using mineral spirits, and it's never let me down. I have also used it for airbrush, Inktense, watercolor pencils and am going to be trying water soluble graphite on it next. It is an expensive paper, but considering the hours I spend on a single piece, it's completely worth it, and an excellent value for me. It handles liquids, pencils and various erasers beautifully. My favorite.
