Just a quick note here. A good UK supplier for the Fabriano paper runing with this discount (atleast 50% off) is http://www.greatart.co.uk (the UK Gerstaecker) who I'v used on many occasions.
If you've not used the Fabriano Artistico papers before, I've found them good to work (I mainly use the 300gsm) with most processes and nearly always use the Smooth (i.e. Hot Pressed) rather than the Fine Grain (a NOT paper). The natural white is a quite warm white/very light cream (nothing like the photos on great art though!) which I mainly use but the bright white is much better if your after a good neutral/clean white.
