Etegami is a traditional Japanese folk art that combines thoughtful words with simple images painted on washi paper. Most of my etegami are painted on washi postcards with sumi ink and traditional Japanese water-soluble pigments called gansai.
See more of my Etegami at http://etegamibydosankodebbie.blogspot.com where I often discuss the cultural background and the tools I use for each piece.
Many of the original etegami are for sale at extremely reasonable prices. Ask me about it.
