I finally found perfect pad for ink drawings. I never used it for watercolor, but ink, rapidographs, nibs, or other ink related tools lans perfectly on it's surface. It is tough, 300 GSM, can take beating and scratching:) I love it.

Really nice paper, very thick and holds watercolors so well.

Love Fabriano. I needed an 11 x14 pad, and this was a good price with great quality. Er

Very smooth paper...I will be using it for graphite work to achieve realism so this is the perfect paper for that purpose. It came promptly and was in perfect condition.

Used it for a watercolor and pen & ink house painting commission. When I started painting the paper was making little crumbs and it looked awful. I thought it might be from my kneeled eraser where I used it to clean up some of my pencil lines. This paper is unforgiving with washes. You see every brush stroke, plus it buckles. Grabbed another sheet to see how it would work with any pencil erasures and it did the exact same thing :(
Not happy that I have to start my drawing all over again, but this time I’ll be using good cold press paper. What a pain.

This is my first purchase of hot press watercolor paper. I normally use cold press and like the texture. Recently I have been doing sketches with micron pens and adding watercolor washes to finish the work. The pens work much better on the smooth texture. It is very easy to move the paint around on the smoother paper.

Excellent quality watercolor paper.
I am very pleased with this brand which I had never tried until this purchase.
I would definitely recommend this paper/brand to others looking for quality water color paper at a great price.

This is beautiful hot press papers. The surface is smooth and responds well to heavy watercolor application!
