An Ornamental Hagoita

8fc

Hello everyone, and happy 2014 to us all! Mieko here today to share an ornamental Hagoita. I created using Gelatos®, Paper Crafter Crayons™ and Stamper’s Big White Pen.

Most of you probably won't know what a hagoita is, so here's a quick definition:

Hagoita (羽子板 「はごいた」) are rectangular wooden paddles, originating in Japan, ostensibly used to play hanetsuki (a traditional new years game, similar to badminton), but often instead serving a more ornamental purpose. These are frequently painted, usually with lacquer, with auspicious symbols, or decorated with complex silk collages. This tradition dates to the 17th century, and although the game itself is now rarely played, crafting decorative hagoita is still commonplace. They are generally sold at traditional fairs (hagoita ichi) which are held in December. In Tokyo, they are sold at shrines, especially Asakusa and Furukawa Fudō. (From Wikipedia)

First, I applied Gesso to the Hagoita and draw Mt. Fiji in Japan with Stamper’s Big White Pen.
