Buddha Board, Enso, and Buddha Board Mini Review @buddhaboard #LetGo @SMGurusNetwork #SPRING19
Hi there, today I will be talking to you about the Buddha Board, the Enso, and the Buddha Board Mini. I will be unboxing them for you and sharing my first impression.
Buddha Board, Enso, and Buddha Board Mini Review
I have heard great things about Buddha Board, so I couldn’t wait to give them a try. When they arrived I was super excited! Let’s get right in on the first product.
The Buddha Board is inspired by the zen idea of “Living in the moment”. I like that it’s made with natural materials. It is a blank canvas where you can draw or doodle with a brush and a little bit of water. When the water evaporates you are left with a blank canvas to use again.
This is the perfect de-stressing product. Not only can you use it to doodle, but you can also evaporate your stress trigger away. Here is what I have been doing. Whenever I have something that is stressing me out, I take the brush and either draw whatever it is or write what it is. Then as I watch it evaporate, I let my stress trigger evaporate too. Because it only uses water, there isn’t any paint, fumes, or chemicals!
The Buddha Board is perfect to use on a desk or table. It has a tray where you are meant to place the board, the brush and water. In the picture below you can see that the tray has two slots. A square one where the board goes, and a round one to place your brush in. The square slots lets your board sit at an angle making it perfect to use.
When my Buddha Board arrived I quickly set it up. I was a bit bummed that the board itself came with black scratch marks on one of the corners. But it still works anyway. I really like that I can use the board in both landscape and portrait orientation.
If you feel that you’d like to decorate your tray, there are special river rocks which you can find here to place in the tray. These river rocks don’t only make your tray pretty. You can also use them to tap out the excess water from your brush. I really love the Buddha Board and it has earned a spot on my desk next to my computer.
The Enso is the same concept of the Buddha Board but perfectly portable. The name Enso is derived from the Japanese word for circle, indicating this is a tool for infinite art that delights in the “flow of life.”
To use it simply flip it, set it up on a flat surface and you’re ready to draw. It comes with a special brush that holds water, which is very easy to fill and use.
This fun board offers you a temporary painting surface. Simply use the water filled brush to paint on the board, and your creation will display in bold black and white. When the water evaporates, your art will also disappear. Which gives you a clean slate for a new creation.
The Enso has quickly become my favorite because of it’s portability. I can take it anywhere and relax whenever I need it!
Buddha Board Mini
This is a mini version of the original Buddha Board. Which makes it optimized for travel. Along with it being more compact, it folds within itself (like the Enso). The cover becomes the base. This base is also where the brush is kept. The hinge becomes the trough, where you pour a slight amount of clean water.
The brush feels balanced, and not compromised in material. I like how easy it is to hold and flows while you create. The best feature that this board has is that your creation will be in whatever color the cover of the Buddha Board Mini is. Mine happens to be black, so my creations are in a bold black and white.
The Buddha Board Mini is available in five fun colors: black, red, blue, green and pink. That means that when you ‘paint’ on the board, your drawing will come alive in the color of the outer case!
