Painting with Bob Ross
A new book of painting projects created by Bob Ross himself!

This resourceful new book breathes fresh life into classic Bob Ross paintings for a new generation of aspiring artists. The artwork and text, created by Bob Ross himself, makes this challenging subject matter accessible and enjoyable for painters of all skill levels.

Each project begins with a tools and materials list, including paint colors. Then, just like an episode of the show, Bob Ross shows how to paint a landscape from start to finish following easy step-by-step instructions. Throughout the book, Bob is there to remind readers that, “We don’t make mistakes, just happy little accidents.”

Ring Ruler Mini™

The Ring Ruler Mini™ is a compact size-adjustable circular ruler that allows for easy measuring, marking or forming of circles or arcs. Expanding and contracting the circle is as easy as pulling the ruler to form and snapping in at your desired size.

The Ring Ruler Mini™ also provides useful fractional circular markings for diameter and can also be used as a 360 degree protractor. Because there is no needle like a pivot-point compass, the Ring Ruler is completely safe for children.

Half art tool, half math tool – the Ring Ruler Mini can be a handy tool for marking circles on flat and even 3D surfaces – while also serving as an educational tool for children learning geometry. Circle range is between 1 and 3.5 inches in diameter.
