Paint with Water on Buddha Boards
Buddha Boards are a wonderful way to paint and enjoy the moment.
A Buddha Board is a Zen-inspired product that lets you paint with water on a special canvas. When you're done, as the water evaporates, the painting disappears and you're ready to paint again and again.
Buddha Boards encourage relaxation and living in the moment. A Buddha Board could just be the perfect gift for someone who could use a little relaxation in their daily life.
This simple form of art therapy might help with physical ailments related to stress like headaches and anxiety.
Benefits of a Buddha Board
Buddha Boards were first sold in 2000 as a form of art therapy to help with relaxation. Here are some of the benefits of playing with a Buddha Board:
~ The picture is not permanent. Therefore, there is no pressure to "get it right."
~ No need to refill the paper supply since the image dries and disappears.
~ The wide brush allows people to make sweeping strokes that may help with awareness and expression.
~ The act of relaxing painting with water lets the mind relax and loosen up your mind if it's full of thoughts. As the water evaporates and the drawing disappears, so might your worries.

A Buddha board makes a wonderful gift for someone who needs to relax a bit more.
The surface of the board is porous, so when you paint with water, it darkens the board so your "painted" image appears. Since you just paint with water, when it dries, the surface is blank again. It's very zen.
