Kokeshi painting workshop/Разукрашивание кокэси

Kokeshi museum in Kuroishi has a fun class where anyone can paint their own kokeshi doll. We tried it and we will share our experience.

Музей кокэси в Куроиши предлагает любым желающим разукрасить свою собственную куклу кокэси. Мы попробовали и поделимся своими впечатлениями.

It all begins with a neatly cut piece of wood. A piece of tissue paper is wrapped around its body to preserve the paint from dripping from the head part of the doll.

Все начинается с заготовки. Она обматывается снизу салфеткой чтобы не испачкать нижнюю часть куклы во время разукрашивания головы.


The head is ready. It looks harder than it seems because there is no "undo" button.

Голова разукрашена. Это на самом деле сложнее чем может показаться, потому что нет кнопки "отменить" и переделать ничего нельзя.

He must be handsome since he already found a girlfriend!

В саунe.

Make-up is done, let's go party!

Хоть в кино или на дискотеку!

In the end, let the doll dry out, then take it to the instructor. He will finish the drying process with a blow dryer, then he will wipe of the doll with a rag and wrap it nicely for you.

После того, как творческая работа окончена, мастер высушит куклу феном, вытрет тряпочкой, а потом завернет в красивую бумажку.
