Fabriano Studio Watercolor Pads
Fabriano’s Studio Watercolor Pads present quality & value, appropriate for both the beginner and the student of fine arts. Made in Italy with a blend of high quality lignin free cotton and cellulose, the paper is acid-free and internally/externally sized for optimal absorbance. Ideal for multimedia techniques, watercolor, tempera, gouache, acrylic, ink, drawing and markers.
Each pad holds 12 sheets that are tapebound on one side.
Hot press paper is the smoothest watercolour paper. It is good for creating works in fine detail, and for use with pen and ink, pencils and markers. Cold press is the traditional watercolor surface with a medium texture called "tooth", which is also preferred by many artists working with charcoal.
FLAX art & design is a genuine Oakland institution. Opening their first store in 1938, they're now on their 3rd generation of family ownership and have recently relocated to a beautiful new Downtown location that could best be described as a "toy store for artists." 80 years in and they're still putting art and community front and center. You can visit them at their own site here, or find more of their products right here on Keep Oakland Alive.
