Non-NU EmailWould any of you care to contribute a short (one-page) article with a few photos of your experiments on the papers for an upcoming Journal issue? Nothing elaborate needed, just a brief summary of the problem(s) and a few pix of the surfaces.
The Journal Team would love to have the article, and I'm sure our readers would definitely appreciate the information!

I have used Twin Rocker in homemade sketchbooks for a long time. It holds up well to the scrubbing and rubbing I do with wet pencils.

Thanks for all the replies and suggestions. I also received word from Katherine Tyrrell in the UK that the problem was never resolved (Fabriano decided the changes were within the range of their performance standards) and she recommends returning to Arches and experimenting with other brands. It's frustrating because the issue with the Fabrano definitely seems sporadic, as Magorie wrote, she has not encountered problems and for me it's working 75% of the time. Anyway, I have already ordered small quantities of some new-to-me brands and I will be going down the rabbit hole of systematic testing. And once I find my preference, I'll be following Bruce and Karen's lead and laying in a large stock so I don't have to think about it again for quite some time! As a side note, I gather that several of the UK botanical artists that were very unhappy with the Fabriano change ended up leaving paper behind completely and switching to vellum. I don't think I'm up to that much change right now but maybe something for the future.

Thanks, Karen, and I also have some Twinrocker. Like it a lot and intend to try some of their other papers when I can. I enjoy supporting small companies that produce quality products.--
