A Lover's Glass


A Lover's Glass, which is also called a Reducing Glass, resembles a magnifying glass at first glance. The glass is for making the object you are viewing appear smaller, rather than larger. It is a handy tool for artists, especially those who are working large, because you can get a perspective on how the work is going without getting up or backing way across the room. This can save some time and energy.

As someone who never works big, my first thought was "why would ever need that?" Now I know :)

Hi Yelena, Yes - it can really help get a fresh look at how your work is going.
