Silverpoint & Mineral Paper Kit
The easiest way to draw with Silverpoint!

The Silverpoint and Mineral Paper Board Kit (MPC-KIT) contains everything you need to get started with this classical artform.

Silverpoint is a type of metalpoint used by artists and craftsmen since ancient times. The softness of the metal makes them effective drawing instruments which allows for detailed, meticulous drawings.

While silverpoint usually requires a gesso-prepared surface, our kit includes Mineral Paper which requires no preparation at all. Because Mineral Paper is made mostly of calcium carbonate, it is an excellent surface for silverpoint drawings and can be used straight out of the box.

Kit includes:
  • 2mm Silverpoint Stylus (MPC-SP2)
  • 1mm Silverpoint refill tip (MPRC-SP1)
  • Mineral Paper board 5″ x 7″
  • 5 sheets Mineral Paper
  • Instruction sheet with QR code digital instructions with videos
