I have a friend who has a traditionl silver & gold smith workshop, he gave me some thin pure 999 silver rods over a decade ago and a tried some ideas, its a good idea! I think I will experiment again , but I usually use Carbon Paper, under the tracing paper image and that works fine, using a sharp 6H pencil.

Does silverpoint erase from gesso or does it need to be washed or sanded off, out of curiosity?

You're not supposed to be able to erase silverpoint, but you actually can, if the line is faint enough. However, most reasonable silverpoint drawing is going to have to be sanded off, if you really want to get rid of it.

Personally, though, I find it so faint under the paint that it doesn't really contribute to the image. I mostly use it as a near-invisible guideline. It doesn't smear the way graphite does.

I use silverpoint under tempera, and often develop the entire drawing that way. I find that I have to fix it before painting over it though otherwise it can move. Which leads me to wonder if it is OK or not to use graphite. Doesn't graphite cause paint layers to lift off?

Graphite will migrate through the layers of paint.
