Looking for a fun Japanese painting kit? U-Can Japanese Creations has exciting traditional Japanese crafts that you will love. It is more than creating art, it is learning and mimicking Japanese culture and traditions that have lived on.
Our Japanese painting kit is called Etegami. Etegami is an intuitive, colorful folk art which consists of ink-based drawings paired with watercolor and thoughtful words. These are usually created on postcards or on Washi paper. The ink used in this practice is called Sumi Ink and the paint is called Gansai. Our Etegami product allows you to take the standard water color painting technique that is very common and use it to produce a work of art with traditional Japanese roots.
The name “Etegami” comes from a combination of the Japanese words (e) and (tegami). (e) means “picture”, and (tegami) means “letter”. Etegami is a simple, in-the-moment inspiration freehand painting. This is to be done without too much thought. Simply, draw and write what is on your mind and heart at that moment. Use intuitive fluidity without overthinking. Don’t be afraid to make bold lines and shapes! When you are done, you can either keep it for yourself or use it as a gift to others! This is a great way to take the water color painting technique you know and love and apply it to something new and exciting.
