The variety of ruling pens:

Ruling pens come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. For this class, you may want to start with the classic fine tipped ruling pen shown second from far right. These were traditionally used by architects and are easily available on Amazon. After seeing Rachel's various ruling pens, you may be inspired to make your own "Cola" pen (Rachel will show us how!) or purchase another more modern shape.
