Making 1,000 Buddha Statues (Tsa Tsas)
It's a rainy day in Los Angeles with summer temperatures diving and the Himalayan foothills getting another blanketing of snow. With clouds on the horizon, we thought a good rainy day fun project was in order. Going around the offices of Wisdom Quarterly, we ask: "How would you do it, how would you create your own Buddha?"
- CC: "I love to draw and paint and get really passionate, making badges to wear around school."
Doug: "I have no idea, something like her ink maybe?"
- Seven: "I'd sculpt soapstone if I had any, limestone if it didn't crumble, or glass if it would melt. That way the finished piece would be a work of art."
- Pat: "The best way I can think of is adobe clay, or candle wax, one freestyle, the other in a mold. Of course I'm not sure how you'd make the mold."
- Amber: "I'd call the factory and have them send over a mold, fill it with veggie-jello, or layer gold film on paper mache!"
- Bhante: "How about using batik (tie-dye)?"
- Gwendolyn: "This is LA, why not just spray paint it?"
- Brahmin: "To be ironic, can make something from pain pills?"
- Sensei: "Make it with the mind and adorn it with practice..."
