Silverpoint, or metal point, drawing as an art form has changed little over the centuries of its distinguished history. The artist working in silverpoint today has an intimate connection to the work of such revered artists as da Vinci and Rembrandt, as well as more recently, Picasso and Joseph Stella. As tiny particles of metal are left behind on a slightly abrasive ground, metal point drawing offers the ability to achieve lasting, exquisitely detailed lines that won't smudge. If different types of metal are used within a piece, over time oxidation of the different metals will impart subtle shifts in the tonality of the lines.


As the time honored art form of metal point drawing experiences a resurgence, Golden Artist Colors responds to the requests of practicing artists by introducing Silverpoint/Drawing Ground. Designed for the achievement of fine, detailed lines, Silverpoint/Drawing Ground is permanent, lightfast and more flexible over time than traditional preparations.


Formulated to meet the unique needs of metal point artists, GOLDEN Silverpoint/Drawing Ground offers a metal receptive ground, applicable to a range of drawing supports. Developed for easy application, the ground has a very fluid consistency that will level as it dries. A single coat of Silverpoint/Drawing Ground provides a smooth, durable surface, ideal for mark making with a silverpoint stylus or other metal, such as brass, gold, copper, or even a steel paperclip.


While many artists enjoy the fineness of line and delicate qualities achieved with a metal stylus on Silverpoint/Drawing Ground, the scope of this product should not be limited to a singular use. When used as a general drawing ground, other media may be intermixed with metal point drawing or used alone to create new effects. It is possible to adjust the absorbent qualities of substrates with Silverpoint/Drawing Ground. By putting a very thin layer of the ground over the entire surface, the substrate's absorbency is decreased. This allows greater fineness of line with Perse drawing media such as graphite, colored pencil, ink, and some markers. In addition, small amounts of other GOLDEN Fluid Acrylic colors can be added to this ground for tinting purposes without a significant drop in performance.

Golden Silverpoint Supplies is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A lifetime of silverpoint stylus? Teacher told me I would never use up this stylus, even though I could have gotten a longer silver "lead" to put in my leadholder. If you were college-age, might not be that way! Makes a line that "tarnishes" and deepens in color. I'm not Durer, but this felt special. I might sharpen it to see the difference next time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great supplies I have been searching for silverpoint supplies for quite some time. I am thrilled to find them here. However, the stylus seems to often be out of stock.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great medium--just apply it quickly! This medium sets up very quickly, and can be colored with acrylic paint if desired. Ensure that a less absorbent paper or surface is used, as you will have more time to apply it before it dries (you will also use less of it). Great product-I will definitely purchase this again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great pre-prepared silverpoint ground O.K., I'm giving Golden stuff a try. Usually I prepare my own traditional silverpoint ground in a huge quantity and gesso a bunch of surfaces to silverpoint. But, and here's the thing, this little bottle of pre-prepared acrylic ground is super convenient. I find myself preparing a bunch of things I never would with the traditional ground because this stuff dries as fast as any acrylic. A little pricey everywhere else except Jerry's and ASW with a discount, so, still very tempting to buy again.
