Master-Quality Papers That Will Stand the Test of Time

FabrianoArtistico’s stunning Extra White watercolor paper delivers the purest, brightest white available without the use of optical brighteners! Available both in Traditional and Extra White, Fabriano Artistico's 100% cotton rag watercolor papers are mould-made using cotton balls instead of stretched and beaten cotton fibers like other brands. This creates a more consistent and even water absorption over the surface, and makes it more strong and durable to withstand scrubbing, erasing, and all common watercolor techniques.

Dating back to 1264, Italy’s Fabriano Mill fine arts papers were used and praised by the likes of Michelangelo. Fabriano pioneered many processed common in paper making today, including the watermark and the technique of surface sheet gluing using gelatin. Today’s technologies allow for internal and external sizing to be done without animal by-products, where they were once needed to preserve the papers archivally. This produces a more consistent, non-yellowing, smell-free, and more resilient non-scuffing surface without blotchy spots, providing more superior color lifting.

Chlorine and acid-free, Artistico is mould-made and has deckled edges with the “Fabriano+Artistico" watermark.

Key Features:
  • 100% cotton, no whiteners

  • Mould-made, deckled edges

The high quality and ample offer of this paper satisfies the requirements of all professional artists and the most demanding amateurs. Ideal for watercolour, 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") 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 - 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 - 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 - 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).
