Silverpoint is the ancestor of the modern pencil and a favorite tool of artists such as Leonardo da Vinci, Albrecht Durer, and Rembrandt van Rijn. The tarnishing trait of silver will mellow drawings over time to soft browns. Learn the special qualities and challenges of drawing with silver, plus a variety of effects using different grounds.
