The Original Buddha Board is inspired by the Zen idea of living in the moment. Simply add half an inch of water to the tray, gently place the board into the notches of the tray, dip your bamboo brush in the water and 'paint' on the special surface of the board, watching as your creation boldly comes to life. As the water slowly evaporates your art will magically disappear, leaving you with a clean slate, a clear mind, ready to create a whole new masterpiece. Buddha Boards are environmentally friendly no ink, no paint, no chemicals and will last for years with proper care. Live for the moment, and enjoy!
