California Society of Printmakers
The California Society of Printmakers (CSP) was formed in 1968 by a merger of the California Society of Etchers, founded in 1913, and the Bay Printmakers Society, founded in 1955. This makes the CSP the oldest printmaking society functioning in the United States today. The current membership is composed of printmakers as well as art historians, supporters of the arts, art institutions and collectors; all committed to the print medium. The CSP is dedicated to enlarging understanding of contemporary printmaking among artists and the public, locally and nationally. Today, CSP has approximately 250 artist members, 19 honorary members, and 12 associate and patron memberships. CSP publishes the annual California Printmaker Journal and the semi-annual California Printmaker News brief.
I love these pallets. I have one for my warm yellows, 1 for cool yellows and you can write on the 2 big wells with the colors that are above ;if you use a woodless graphite pencil, it won't rub off easily. This way I know the exact color and color bias for my red, blues, yellows, violets, greens, and oranges. I find I only need one for my white, black/grey tints and earth tone water colors. For stains, I clean off with olive oil then follow with soap and water so oil doesn't get into my watercolor pigments.
