Watercolour Eco

Are you a student who experiments with wet or hyper wet art techniques or an artist who does not want to compromise on sustainability?

Watercolour Eco is the new watercolour pad for you! Its features make it unique and once you discover it you’ll never want to be without it!

Its recipe makes it special; Watercolour Eco is made up of 25% post-consumer recycled cotton fibres, obtained from the recovery of textile process waste. Thanks to creative reuse, upcycling, this material now has a new life. The cotton fibres give both strength and absorbent properties to the paper, making it ideal for hyper-wet art techniques, such as watercolour.

Watercolour Eco is the pad for art lovers who do not want to compromise on sustainability and we understand it well!

Our teacher, who works as an art therapist, explained to us that “the watercolour technique is very relaxing, the fluidity of the colour gets rid of thoughts and tensions and also teaches us to let go, to accept the unexpected and, indeed, to embrace imperfection as a special feature “.

We got involved with colours and brushes, freeing the imagination and even a little tension. Some rediscovered the beauty of painting in a childlike way; others have found a relaxing and creative new hobby to pursue. And knowing that doing it while respecting the environment makes it even more satisfying!

We experimented with many different Favini papers including those which were more and those less suitable for watercolours, to understand better their differences and merits. The colours for the workshop were kindly provided to us by Morocolor Italia: The Primo range is made up of palettes of watercolour tablets that really helped to stimulate our creativity.

Finally, to gain the best result the surface of the paper is felt-marked: the coarse-grained finish is on both sides. The weight of the sheets in the pad is 300g / m2, ideal for allowing the sheet to handle the wet techniques without compromising its functionality. The pad is glued on two sides.

For the development of the paper we were guided by the advice of an expert
