Comments about Cretacolor Silverpoint Pencil:
Having never tried Silverpoint, I was unsure of what type Silverpoint pencil to buy so I purchased this one and I believe it will last quite a while. My only concern is that the silver inside the pen holder is not straight so I'm not sure how it will hold up over time. Otherwise it works great!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I am 83 and have used silverpoint for years it is better than the replaceable stylus. The finished picture turns light sepia after a few years. The ones I made in 1968 are beautiful.

Silverpoint is fun.
from Madison WI
The art of silverpoint is new to me. I was given a bottle of silverpoint fluid. I ordered the pencil from Dick Blick to give the technique a try. I was very happy with the pencil. It is a pencil only in its shape and the appearance of the mark it makes. It is very sturdy and comfortable to hold. It Is easy to carry. It only makes marks on prepared paper so won't damage any surface it is transported it. I was very happy with this tool and the new technique of silverpoint.
I LOVE THE SERVICE I GET FROM DICK BLICK!
I bought a couple Cretacolor Silverpoint Pencils with which to draw. I had never heard of these before, but they are wonderful. No ink or graphite,,,just a silver point that leaves color similar to a pencil. A great addition to my art box.
