When I started to use wet media in my journals, I was disappointed by many watercolor pads. The paper was not strong, it could not absorb water adequately, sometimes the paint would lose its vibrancy when dry, and so on and so forth. The good watercolor papers were really expensive, and I was afraid to experiment and "waste" them.

I researched the market, for many years, until I found the perfect paper. It is strong, accepts watercolor and other wet media perfectly, and is really good for all my mixed media experiments both wet and dry. For the last few years, it is the only paper I use.

It is made by Fabriano, an Italian paper manufacturer that has produced quality paper since 1264. It is a strong 300gsm (140lb) mixed media paper. It is designed to accommodate both wet and dry media such as watercolor, gouache, acrylics, and ink. It has a neutral PH, and it is also acid-free and chlorine-free.
