Vat19: The Original Buddha Board Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed with 183 comments. Thank you to all who entered. Congratulations to the lucky winner ~ Stacy!

I have yet to come across a product from Vat19 that I didn't think was downright awesome! This company really has the most unique products out there. Looking for a gift for the hard-to-buy-for? Check out Vat19 - you'll be pleasantly surprised with their innovative and terrific selection!




I received The Original Buddha Board from this company to review. Holy smokes this thing is cool! I can literally paint all day without the use of paper. Just plain water and you're set to go. That's what's so neat about this product.

Make a mistake? Want to start over again? No problem! Your work of art will disappear right before your eyes. The water slowly evaporates leaving a plain canvas to let your imagination run wild on.

I'm an artist and this product is by far one of the greatest inventions to me. My kids LOVE it. No more wasting paper! It's such an eco-friendly product as well. And NO MESS! Parents - you love it all ready, don't you?!?

This product helps you relax, clears the mind and really gets your creative juices flowing.


Features & specs:

  • Board dimensions: 9.5" x 12" x 0.125"
  • Base dimensions: 6" x 4.5" x 1.75"
  • Bamboo brush (8") INCLUDED
  • Board can rest horizontally or vertically in base

Now you have the opportunity to win one for yourself!
