Fabriano Artistico Watercolor Paper 140lb 20 Sheet Block 7x10" Cold Press - Extra White
About "Fabriano Artistico Watercolor Paper"
Fabriano Artistico Watercolor Papers use cotton balls, as opposed to stretched and beaten cotton fibers as in other brands, for consistent and even water absorption across the surface. This construction also gives for a stronger, more durable surface that can take a lot of punishment, whether it be scrubbing, erasing, or any number of other common watercolor techniques.
Perfect For: all water media, printmaking, digital printing, charcoal, pastel, and other drawing applications
Soft Press is a unique surface that only Fabriano makes. The surface grain is in between Cold Press and Hot Press, providing just enough texture but not too much. Its almost spongy feel makes it a favorite among printmakers and digital printers, and it is perfect for the beginner watercolorist who has not quite mastered the effects of Cold Press.
No animal by-products are used in sizing. This procedure produces a more consistent, non-yellowing, non-smelling, more resilient non-scuffing surface that has no blotchy spots with an overall superior color-lifting response. Choose Fabriano Artistico Watercolor Papers for best experience
