The Fabriano paper mill in Italy has been making high-quality artists'''' paper since the 13th century and is responsible for many innovations, such as watermarking, that are still used in paper production today. Artistico watercolor paper continues this tradition as a beautiful paper of absolute professional quality, satisfying the requirements of professional artists as well as the most demanding amateurs.

Fabriano sizes this watercolor paper both internally and externally to produce a surface that is absorbent and retains its nature even when scratched, lifted, or scraped.

  • Excellent surface for creative acrylic painting

    Reviewed on 4/15/2019

    As reviewed by Julie

    Experience: PROFESSIONAL

    I teach abstract acrylic painting in layers, including wiping off so some of the under-layers show through. Both for acrylic painting and wiping off, having a smooth surface lets the artist's brush glide over the surface so the artist can be much more creative and free than on a paper that has tooth. I'm very happy with this Fabriano 140 lb hot press paper in the 18x24 size. It holds up well under the stress of multiple layers; it stands up nicely for critique; it doesn't buckle in waves like other papers do - although it gently curls, which is easily remedied by swiping the opposite way against a table edge. This paper is by far better than any other I have tried for teaching creative acrylic painting.
