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 have been using this product for years and find that it works perfectly on my gessoed wood pieces. The biggest complaint I have is that over the years Grumbacher has downsized the size of the bottle, now making it only available in these small, expensive quantities. I would like for them to offer them in a larger size.
I have been using Fluid paper for a few years now and find that it's a great value for the price. The quality is suitable for beginner to intermediate level painters. Very easy to work with, accepts watercolor paints, pencils, aqua crayons and markers well.
