Created with 100% cotton, this paperboard is indicated for all printmaking techniques (engraving, lithography, silk-screening, typography, woodcut and linocuts). It is mould made, size 56x76 with all edges deckled.
The watermark is fixed point and placed below right on the sheet. It reproduces the CMF trademark surmounted by a star and enclosed in a circle. In the 7OX100 size the two larger sides are deckled and the watermark runs parallel to them, reproducing the inscription "C. M. FABRIANO 100% COTTON". Tiepolo is pH neutral, assuring inalterability over time. The paper is only internally sized, not on the surface, which gives it a soft touch (extra because of the cotton) and makes it suitable for fine details, for example mezzotint and aquatint.
