Does this Notion REALLY work? Do you love color but find it hard to differentiate between lights, mediums and darks? Do you struggle with color value? Today I am going to introduce you to the The Ruby Ruler. This handy little ruler is not only a functioning ruler but it also helps allow you to see beyond color and see value.
The Ruby Ruler
The Ruby Ruler is basically an artist Rubylith film. It acts as a viewfinder to help remove the “color” and only show value.

Who invented and when?
The Ruby Ruler was invented by Blair Stocker owner of WiseCraft Handmade. It took her a few months to invent and she launched in February 2018.
