Silverpoint Drawing Tool, 1mm (MPC-SP1)
Silverpoint is a centuries-old technique in which silver is used to draw on a specially prepared surface, leaving traces of the metal to create one’s drawing. Silverpoint drawings tarnish over time creating warmer tones. Yasutomo’s Silverpoint Drawing Tools have a black 5 1/2″ long wooden handle with an elegant bamboo shape for a comfortable grip.
The 1mm wide 99% silver point is beveled to allow for different drawing techniques and line thicknesses. (Also available in 2mm.) Tips are 9mm (3/8″) long. Points can be removed by simply unscrewing them from the handles are replaced with Yasutomo silverpoint refills.
Packaged in a white box with a gray foam insert and a clear plastic sleeve so that customers can see the complete product through the packaging. Box has a hang tab for easy display.
While silverpoint is typically done on gesso-prepared surfaces, Yasutomo mineral paper is an excellent silverpoint substrate that requires no preparation!
