Corinthian Capital Sculpture - Tricks for Measuring

For quick checking of my visual measurements, I use a string stapled to the mid-line of the project, here, the center of the first leaf of the Corinthian Capital.

I wrap the cord around my pencil, pull it tight and can swing it from side to side to see how things are lining up. It's fast and an easy way to ensure balance on a sculpture.
