Silverpoint

I decided to have an experiment with a very inexpensive method of silverpoint drawing. Basically scratching with an earring onto a acrylic primer ground.


This is the result. Very small drawings because the sharp end of the earring is so fine but I think this could be quite a fun way to draw. A little softer than ball point.

Caroline,
It might be softer than ball point but it sounds really hard to do! I've read about silverpoint but I don't think I understand how it's done. I find what you're saying so intriguing that I must investigate!
