I think I might invest in one of those magnifying glass thingies that you wear on a headband. I am not having trouble seeing the letters, though. It's just when I look at the letters now, while concentrating on lettering, my eyes go wonky!  ;D  :o

I hope it's okay I did all three in one shot! It's really fun practice!

(Sorry for the bad lighting)

so i had to come back to this because i bought one of those $4.99 magnifying bookmarks at Michaels.  No good it made me dizzy.  then today i said fine, i picked up a pair of "readers" at the grocery store, 1.25 level, and they work great.  $3, it's cheap plastic, but whatever.  the letter forms are just enlarged enough for me to really "see" them.  good lord, readers, i'm finally feeling my age!!!

Oh Joi, I feel you. I started doing the "arm's length" move whenever I looked at something too close in dim light. :-[ Told my eye doctor about my need to see clearly when doing calligraphy, and he got me a pair of prescription readers that are 1.00 only. It helped a TON! But I already wear contact lenses so I am now wearing my readers AND my contact lenses when I do calligraphy work. Le sigh.
