Silverpoint Drawing
5×7″ prepared paper

These fortune cookies are drawn with a rod of silver on gray-blue prepared paper. This drawing medium, known as silverpoint, pre-dates the graphite pencil and was used extensively during the Renaissance era. Over time the metallic silver lines will “tarnish” to a sepia tone.
