the Original Buddha Board is a cool new approach to an old concept - water painting. This reusable water painting canvas empowers you to use your creativity to create something unique, similar to watercolour painting without the paints, but goes a step further to erase itself after the water you paint with dries! The concept is that this process enforces the Zen like act of living in the moment and not getting too attached to your art work. The canvas is constructed from a unique material that shows up as black when the canvas gets wet, and will slowly fade back to the natural blank slate as the water dries and evaporates (see our video above for a fantastic video of Eric Thrall – Inventor of Buddha Board, demonstrating how this works at our store in Vancouver).
Zen Water Painting in a Sustainable Way
Feel good about painting with the Buddha Board! It's like watercolor, but none of the Buddha Board products use inks, paints, or any chemicals, so it’s eco-friendly AND sustainable – now that’s cool! Invented and made in Vancouver, the Buddha Board itself is even 100% recyclable, making it as environmentally friendly as it gets. (For a product conceptualized around mastering the art of letting go; you’re going to have a hard time ‘letting go’ of this one!)
