    Default For us Old Folks...what do you use for Magnification?

    For us Old Folks...what do you use for Magnification? My old eyes cannot pick up all the detail the use to. I look at pics I have taken and say WTF.

    Any and all help would be appreciated.
    Now Where Did I Put My Glasses?
    I eat crayons!! Do you have any REDS? They taste the best!
    I probably would paint with them better.

    At 62 I wear reading glasses with clip on 3+ magnifiers like these hesehttps://www.amazon.co.uk/Magnifier-L...+on+magnifiers

    not totally perfect but at least I can see what I’m doing wrong.

    I also would suggest an ottlight -painting with magnifier lenses plus using a good miniature painting lamp(ottlight) will give a good 1/2 punch and make any mistakes potentially avoidable. Also take pictures as you go they often help you to clean up any mistakes . The picture don’t lie.

    Optivisor from Amazon, can't paint without them. I have two different magnifications, one for general use and one for detail work.
