I am teaching myself silver point and I suppose I’m doing it in a non-traditional way. I like texture so I have added marble dust to Golden’s ground on an A4 Arches smooth water color paper. It’s rough and gritty, I haven’t use casein, I haven’t used board, I haven’t sanded it to eggshell, I like the grainy photo look. I’ve been frowned at and chided for doing it this way, meh! I’m happy with the developing results. Although my progress photos could do with some improving!
