Golden Silverpoint Drawing Ground is a liquid acrylic used for the preparation of supports for drawing media. The ground is designed for the achievement of fine detailed lines on a permanent, lightfast, flexible ground.
Silverpoint Drawing Ground is ideal for use with metal styli or other drawing tools. It is formulated with 100% acrylic polymer emulsion, a low viscosity fluid that contains high levels of titanium dioxide and prepares surfaces to readily accept marks from a metal stylus.
Silverpoint Drawing Ground is designed for thin applications only. When applied too thickly the film may crack upon curing. A single thin coat is typically sufficient. It can be applied via brush or spray onto paper, primed canvas, wood or any surface that will accept a water-based coating. The most common substrate for metal point drawing is heavyweight hot pressed watercolour paper.
Please note: Because lower weight papers are susceptible to buckling from the moisture in the Silverpoint Drawing Ground, some artists may find that taping the edges down helps to prevent extensive warping.
