Perfect for measuring while drawing
from Plainfield, IL
Comments about Blick Masterbow Divider:
I was dubious because of the low price, but was really pleased because it is exactly what I was looking for. It enables me to measure different areas of a drawing and compare to other areas so I can be sure the drawing is correct.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

A really handy tool. A must when doing portrait work, and also many other uses for an artist.
By Katherine, an artist
from Virginia Beach, Va
I use this when I draw and it works exactly how I want it to. The quality is really good.
Made in Italy and produced with clean energy, this tool helps me place facial features in the right place better than just eyeballing it. Sure, you can draw without it, but this tool is useful for those of us who struggle with perspective or might get features a little off, eg. one eye bigger or placed higher or lower than the other. The Blick Bow Compass is a solid tool that stays where you put it.

Using this tool made a huge difference in my portrait paintings. Makes it easy to see where your proportions are off, when you know something is just not right. Wish I would have bought one years ago.

Very nice, affordable drawing tool
By SL Brown
from Land of Enchantment
I use these for scaling drawings. I had been using dividers from an old drafting set, but the tips wore down and I could not find replacements. I was leery of buying these Blick dividers because they are so inexpensive, but was very pleasantly surprised. The hinge is smooth and has just the right amount of tension to make easy one-handed changes, yet hold position when needed. (When I scale a drawing, I hold the dividers in my left hand as I draw with my right.) I should have replaced my old dividers with these a long time ago!
The divider is an excellent artist tool.
from Queens, New York
The divider is such an important artist tool. It helps you to get your drawing exactly correct. This was used a lot when I was a student. I don't think many artists know about it's use today. Drawing is not taught as it once was since people use copy machines to draw.With the divider, you can measure how one thing measures against another. You can measure how many heads go into the body and repeat the same thing on your drawing. The points at the end make measuring exact.

Review from a novice
By Rob Dey
from Northern Virginia Area
This is the first divider I've ever owned so I don't actually have anything to compare it to. It seems of good quality. Definitely worth what I paid. I don't have any real reason it shouldn't be a 5 star I just haven't owned enough of them to say it really is.
