The Jerusalem Pencil Company is a small family-owned business in the northern suburbs of Tel Aviv.
The family behind it, Rabbi Abraham, has a background in art, design and photography.
In his spare time, he creates unique pieces with his family.
His passion for acrylic paints is as well.
He uses a technique called glaze-baking, which is the process of making the paint solid and then glazing it in layers.
It takes a lot of time, patience and a great deal of creativity.
When he started, he had just one coat of acrylic paint and had to make a whole batch every week, so it was difficult.
Then the business began to take off and he made several hundred pieces a month.
He also sells the finished products online and offers them to customers.
“I do not sell the finished product myself, because I do not like it and I think that it is not suitable for children,” he said.
“However, I am very happy that my customers can enjoy it and appreciate the work I did,” he added.
“The most important thing is that it’s beautiful, that it feels beautiful and that it makes my clients happy,” Rabbi Abraham said.
After years of learning how to bake in the home, he decided to learn how to do it in the studio.
He began with a large acrylic painting, made with acrylic, acrylic oil and paint thinner.
He made a series of large acrylics, then the final batch was painted with acrylic paint.
The result was beautiful, he said, and he has been making it ever since.
“It is a beautiful thing to do.
It is a nice way to express your feelings,” he explained.”
You can paint it, and it feels very much like a painting,” he continued.
It’s like having a real piece of art.””
I am always pleased with the results.
It’s like having a real piece of art.”
Rabbi Abraham said the technique was not unique to him.
“There are many other techniques used in this business.
In the past I have made acrylic paint for a long time,” he recalled.”
My customers are very satisfied.
I am happy with what I have done.”
Rosh Hashanah was the first day of the new year, and Rabbi Abraham was busy.
He had already made more than 30,000 acrylic paintings.
On that day, he made two sets of acrylic paintings for the synagogue, one with the name of Rabbi Abraham and one with his mother’s name.
The second set, made of white acrylic paint, was for the family and they were thrilled with it.
“Rabbis can make acrylic paint at home,” Rabbi Isaac said.
“It is very easy and very fun.
The best part is that you do not need any materials and you can use the whole family.
It takes no time and you do it on a daily basis.”
Rachana, a child in her first year at the school, said the family appreciated the art.
“We were all very happy when the rabbi made a big batch of it for us,” she said.
