This Wool Felt Shitajiki Writing Pal is made of 100% pure wool which makes the tool soft so that when painting on a rice paper on it, it makes your strokes smooth and prevents the extra ink / water from staying on your artwork or the table. Artists love it because it helps them generate better artistic effects.
Painting of any kind is naturally prone to making a mess in whatever space you use an art studio, whether it be a dedicated art space where it is ok to get a little paint on the walls or at a kitchen table where you would prefer to keep your ink on the paper and absolutely nowhere else. The Wool Felt Writing Pal can be one of the best tools for the latter artist, and can provide many advantages to the former, as well.
It is carefully woven with the best material, providing a soft and even base for you to work on and won’t get balled. However, we would recommend you not to wash it since the softness is easy to lose after washing.
The Wool Felt Shitajiki Writing Pal is a perfect addition to any artist’s studio or workspace, and is a great tool that can be used again and again with nearly every calligraphy and Sumi-E project you have. The pad is available in two sizes to better meet all of your artistic needs.
