If you loved Etch-A-Sketch when you were a kid then you’ll probably want to know about the Buddha Board. It’s a similar concept with a twist that makes it a little more “grown up” than playing with an Etch-A-Sketch in your office at the age of 28.
The unit’s base has a little reservoir for water and a paintbrush holder above that. Dip the paintbrush in the water and apply a stroke to the surface above to darken the board as if using black ink. The strokes appear with watercolor-like texture and flow. With the normal rate of water evaporation, those strokes slowly disappear to present a clean painting surface again in time.
The more water you apply to a stroke, the thicker it appears and the longer it will last.
And if you really like what you “painted” then you can take a picture of it. You can even make a totally new Instagram account just for pictures of your Buddha Board paintings! We get a cut if you go viral though.
