Four-Deckled Edge Watercolor Paper Rolls, Vegan Sized

Fabriano's paper mill has been making fine art papers since 1264. Today's new vegan sizing allows for internal and external sizing without animal by-products. This sizing modification will please all watercolorists because of the control and lifting capabilities the new sizing provides. The Fabriano watermark has been modernized and reduced and now reads on the sheet's front side because the artwork should be the star. All four of the paper edges are deckled, perfect for artists who like to frame the full sheet. Fabriano Artistico's watercolor papers can withstand scrubbing and erasing because the robust paper is mould-made.

Key Features:
  • 100% cotton, no whiteners
  • Chlorine and acid-free
  • Mould-made
  • Four deckled edges

NEW Fabriano Artistico Extra & Traditional White Pure Performance Watercolor Paper

Product Overview

Four-Deckled Edge Watercolor Papers, Vegan Sized

Fabriano's paper mill has been making fine art papers since 1264. Fabriano pioneered many processes common in paper making today, including paper sizing. Today's new vegan sizing allows for internal and external sizing without animal by-products. This sizing modification will please all watercolorists because of the control and lifting capabilities the new sizing provides. The Fabriano watermark has been modernized and reduced and now reads on the sheet's front side because the artwork should be the star. All four of the paper edges are deckled, perfect for artists who like to frame the full sheet. Fabriano Artistico's 100% cotton rag watercolor papers are mould-made. This paper technique creates a more consistent and even water absorption over the surface and makes the paper robust and durable enough to withstand scrubbing and erasing techniques. Italian translation of paper texture: Grana Dolce = Soft Press, Grana Satinata = Hot Press, Grana Fina = Cold Press, Grana Grossa = Rough.

This high-quality watercolor paper satisfies the requirements of all professional and amateur artists. Ideal for watercolor, tempera, gouache, acrylic, ink, charcoal, graphite, and drawing. It is also suitable for printmaking.

Artistico is offered in Traditional and Extra White and comes in Cold, Hot, Rough, and Soft Presses.

Cold Press - (sometimes referred to as “Not Press") Italian translation is Grana Fina. Offers a lovely slight texture and tooth that grips pigment beautifully, created from pressing the finished paper between cold cylinders. Overall the most popular watercolor press.

Hot Press - Italian translation is Grana Satinata. Provides a smooth, flat, even surface; produced by being run through hot cylinders. Perfect for multimedia drawings and paintings with all water media.

Rough Press -  Italian translation is Grana Grossa. Features a pronounced tooth and texture heavier than Cold Press, created from placing wet paper sheets between textured blankets, air drying, or a combination of the two. Rough Press produces a grainy effect as watercolor pigment particles collect in the low parts of the paper.

Soft Press -  Italian translation is Grana Dolce. A unique surface that only Fabriano makes. It is a press between Cold and Hot, providing just enough texture for grip, and is considered almost spongy in feel. As a result, it is a favorite with printmakers and is the perfect surface for beginner watercolorists who have not quite mastered the effects of Cold Press (available in Extra White).
