|A ruler for making balls
I didn’t invent using a ruler with circle holes for making ideal spheres, but I like it.
A long time ago, before I joined the ball-jointed doll course I bought a triangular ruler with circle holes. But when the time came it turned out that it only had holes with diameters I had no use for. So I had to buy this big one.

And here is how I use it: on the left is a sculpted ball before I sand it. And on the right is a ball I have processed with the ruler. The hole right above it is the one I used.

And here you can see three diameters: 11, 13, and 25 mm. The central one is already attached to an arm, but it is not sanded yet. I hope it will look better.
