Buddha board, Buddha hands

Some brush paintings the easy way. I did these on the Buddha board with a brush and water, then–quick!–scanned them before the images faded away. This is actually a great way to work on an idea or just to piddle around until an idea forms itself.

This single hand image ended up getting transferred to t-shirts for my kids and my niece and nephew last Christmas.

I have tried and tried to find out exactly how the surface of the Buddha board is made. It’s definitely cardboard with some sort of slip over–a clay of some kind? Would love to be able to buy large pieces of it but I can’t even find out the proper name for the board.

Anybody out there know more about this?

In the meantime, regardless of whether I’m able to pin down what it is, it’s awfully fun to work with.
