Silverpoint is an ancient drawing medium used extensively during the Renaissance. Essentially, silverpoint drawing is based on a prepared Gesso surface upon which the artist draws with a fine silver stylus. The acrylic Gesso primer is applied in layers to the paper or panel and the final layer sanded smooth. When first applying silver to a properly prepared panel or paper, the drawing leaves a greyish line. In turn, these lines tarnish over time giving the drawing a unique mature look.
