Fabriano’s Toned Paper Pad is one of those simple ideas that the company has been known to master. 50-sheet pads are toned with an evocative shade, giving you a neat way to add depth to your sketches and drawings by way of shading and highlighting techniques. With 15 percent cotton content, the 120gsm paper also finds that Fabriano balance between softness and strength. And then there’s the feel: The smooth, natural surface is suitable for all dry techniques such as pencil, charcoal, crayon, coloured or ink pencils, gel pens, and water-based markers. Tones available – clay, moss, sand, and sea.
