      About Silverpoint:

      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.

      99% silver points are beveled to allow for different drawing techniques and line thicknesses. Available in 1mm or 2mm widths. 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!
