Arrived quickly and as described. Fine product.
This is museum-grade paper, the best professional watercolor paper in the world because it contains no gelatin it's animal friendly.

I use these to do a short study or sometimes, if there are not too many washes, a card. I love Fabriano because you can erase your pencil lines with ease, your watercolor is vibrant, and right now, as of this writing, quality is still good. I say that, because everything these days is about the bottom line and we artists suffer.

I love this watercolor paper. The color is very smart and it takes alot of washes without buckling. I have this in every size.
Fabriano 300# cold press
from Los Alamos, NM
Several key things here: Reliable quality control from one batch to the next; Forgiving, in that it takes glaze after glaze until you get what you want; Rugged in that it will take lifting and scraping at a shameful level (No joke! I was trying to get the texture of lichen, finally had to attack the paper and scrape it with a box cutter-- the paper was resolute, and I got the exact effect I had hoped for); Glow!... any color that is glazed over will continue to have it's influence when you stand back. And price... Blick put it on sale (ten sheets) for less per sheet than I usually pay for 140 pound paper. At a recent workshop, we were asked to put up work to explain and take questions. A fellow student asked how I got my clear blue sky with no visible brush strokes. The answer just popped out: " I cheat. I use 300 pound Fabriano".
I absolutely love these paper blocks, they are just the right size for my plein air sketches/paintings and the paper holds up to pen, ink, and watercolor so very well.
paper block comes off cardboard backing
from SW Michigan
It's a large watercolor block that, unfortunately, came off of the cardboard backing. I could still use the top papers that were adhered together, but the lower papers will get rather spindly without being adhered to the cardboard backing. The wet paper will buckle when dried. Perhaps because it's a big block, but it should not do this.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: We're sorry to hear that the binding on the block you received is faulty, and we're happy to help you with this. Please give us a call at 1-800-723-2787 at your earliest convenience. Our Customer Care Agents will take good care of you!
By Mia deFleur
I use it for watercolors. As I sometimes love square format , the roll is perfect solution for me.It is my first time to use this paper and it sims that it knows what is my concept and follows my thoughts.What I like to tell it is very flexible for different approach from wet on wet to dry brush. Allow lifting without viewable changes of surface.Beautiful grain, I'd like to try rough.I'll send you examples.
