Blindness Leads Artist to Develop Paint Braille System
blindnessFormer art teacher, Ron Ferguson’s passion for painting, continues even though he is living with blindness. In an effort to keep track of each color of paint he is using, Ferguson created a paint bottle braille system. The technique allows him to identify primary colors, which then enables him to mix up other hues. His wife initially helps him identify each color so that he can label the bottles correctly.

“At the top of the paint I put one ball for yellow, two for red, and three for blue,” says Ferguson.
