Thanks for posting the link.  Really interesting stuff (especially the part about the watercolor paints).

But I will note that what the guy didn't bring out during the first part, with the silverpoint drawings, is that part of the reason you need a rougher surface is that you are actually leaving little scrapings of the silver onto the surface, and then those particles of silver will oxidize (I've always wanted to find someone who will make me a silverpoint "lead" to fit in one of my Berol Turquoise leadholders -- or at least make the tube shape and then I will figure out a way to grind down the end to a point.  

I think there are places you can buy them, but they aren't cheap....
