Interested to paint picture on the Japanese traditional candle called wa-rosoku?
Painted wa-rosoku was originated in Tohoku area in Edo period. Because of the long winter, there were only a few flower available at the time. And so, people started painting flowers on the candle and make an offering to the god. By using acrylic color, draw any picture on the candle made by natural ingredient called JAPAN WAX in overseas!!

The painted Japanese candle was used to be a tribute to the Shogunate.
