Before graphite pencils were available, artists drew with metals - lead, silver, gold and others. Discover the subtle, luminous tones of silver drawing, and learn to use this lovely Renaissance technique in your art and illustrations. Susan takes you through the history of the medium and teaches today's techniques for getting the most out of it in your own work.
