About Buddha Board
Imagine an Etch-a-Sketch, but with water! You simply paint on the surface with water and your creation will come to life in bold design. Then as the water slowly evaporates, your art will magically disappear leaving you with a brand new canvas each time.
All the components are included in your Original Buddha Board set. The semi-transparent sheet is meant to go under your water tray if you expect potential water dripping (as with children sometimes). You may place the board in landscape (horizontal) or portrait (vertical) position in the square notches of the tray. The curved notches in front of those are meant to hold your brush. Fill your tray with ½ inch of water only. Dip your paintbrush in the water and create! If water drips and pools along the lower edge, don’t forget to gently dab the excess with a clean cloth. Do not over-saturate the board (with brush stokes) and absolutely do not dip the board in water.
Yay for cameras! Our boards are meant to encourage you to master the art of letting go. Impermanence and non-attachment is a staple of Buddhist thinking and that’s where we got our name. It’s really important to just be in the moment and to enjoy the process.
Well, that’s like asking a magician how they did a trick! It’s a trade secret, but both the surface and backing are made of natural and man made materials.
Yes. There is no ink, no paint and no chemicals. The best part? It’s a reusable artboard! Imagine how many pieces of paper you would go through to otherwise make your creations.
Do we ever! You would REALLY make our day to show us a loved creation. Please email your art to us at firstname.lastname@example.org – we’re always looking for submissions for our website gallery and social media. We’d love to make you a Buddha Board star!
Use clean room temperature water and change it for each use.
Evaporation rates depend on the thickness and saturation of the stroke. You can start to see fading at 30 seconds and some strokes may take as long as 10 minutes to disappear.
No! We know it’s tempting, but we don’t recommend it as you could permanently transfer oils or other substances to the surface.
While part of the enjoyment of Buddha Board is to naturally flow with the process of creating and to practice patience, dabbing your board GENTLY and with a very SOFT clean cloth will help the drying process. Do not use hairdryers as they are too warm for the surface material.
That depends on you and how you care for your board! With the proper care mentioned below, the board can last for several years.
Handle your board by the edges only. It’s also best to avoid touching the surface as much as possible. The tray should never be filled with more than one inch of water. Don’t over saturate or fully immerse your board in water. Ensure to ONLY use a clean soft-bristled brush on the surface of the board. If water drips down the board and settles along the bottom edge, dab it with a soft cloth [especially where the board rests into the water tray].
Anything that isn’t water! Oils from skin, ink, crayon, cooking oil, paint, food, sharp edges, dirt, highlighters, pencils, etc. Keeping your board in the kitchen is NOT recommended. Most mishaps occur there or with children trying other tools on it. Take care to not let anything but a brush touch the surface, and note that hard edges can cause permanent scratches.
It can’t be cleaned nor resurfaced. The good news is that we do offer replacement boards on amazon.com.
Absolutely! Any NEW clean soft-bristled brush can assist you in your creations. Note: Do not use brushes that have been previously used for real painting purposes, as some of the colour could still be present and could permanently mark the surface.
