I’m going to cut to the chase here! You can take dirt, add water, shape it into a sphere, and after a time, you can shine it!
I discovered this process—which is actually a past time of Japanese Children—while watching an episode of Mythbusters! So, how does one get started?
I created a WordPress blog site dedicated to featuring and teaching the art of Hikaru Dorodango. You can find it at dorodangonation.com.
When I started, I took the time to gather the things I would need in order to be successful. Here’s the cool thing: You can successfully do Hikaru Dorodango with materials you already have. Don’t get me wrong, you can upgrade your process with more professional level tools. But to get started all you really need is dirt and water! If you can come up with an old window screen all the better.
At any time that you have questions I would love to hear from you! You can leave comments and questions on the blog, on YouTube, or just email me here!
