Our current favourite paper at Paper-works* for most printmaking is Fabriano Unica paper. It is made of 50% cotton, and has been specifically developed to be suitable for all printmaking techniques. The paper is a combination of the many years experience of the Fabriano paper mills and a collaboration with a group of artists from the Opificio della Rosa , an international centre dedicated to the awareness and spread of traditional and innovative methods of printmaking.
The artists from Opificio della Rosa have tested the paper with a host of printing, engraving and other techniques, testing it to its limits. The paper has a weight of 250g/sqm and is economically priced and available in white and cream in three different sizes: 50cmx 70cm , 56cm x 76 cm and 70cm x 100cm.
Paper-works* has been successfully using Fabriano Unica for Linocut, Drypoint, Kitchen Litho and Cyanoprint.
Individual sheets of Fabriano Unica are available for purchase from paper-works* by those attending workshops or members open days.
