Fisher Wells' traditional silverpoint tool. Fine silver rod set into a beautifully handcrafted wooden holder, using a variety of environmentally sustainable woods. Silverpoint and Copperpoint pens allow for a precise, fine line drawing technique. Drawings are made by moving the silver or copper wire across a surface prepared with gesso or primer which leaves a mark of microscopic metal particles. The initial marks of silverpoint appear grey when exposed to air, tarnish to a warm brown tone over a period of several months.
Fisher Wells is a Melbourne based business that has been designing and producing art materials for sale for over a decade. Made by artists for artists, they personally use the materials and art tools that they make.
