    Thumbs up Making my own runes...

    Out of homemade clay (2c. flour 1c. salt 1c. water). I measured out about 0.5oz of clay for each of 24 runes which I formed into little balls and then gently pressed to be slightly flat. I then took a flat head screwdriver and marked in each rune into the balls. They are currently in a 250 degree oven slowly drying. Once they are dry and cool I'll take either a dark pen or some paint and fill in the marks and then I'll cover with clear nail polish.

    I've also purchased fabric to sew (with machine) a drawstring rune bag.

    Once it is all done, I'll post a picture

    Here is the finished product! A little rougher than I thought they'd be, but still not bad for my first attempt

    I'm so glad you like them! The paint in the etching of the rune symbol kind of smudged up a bit, but in a way they kind of look "old" or "authentic" that way. I hope yours turn out the way you want them too and I hope you'll share!

    Those are really neat! I was going to make some runes in shells using polymer clay, but I like the idea of homemade clay. It seems more natural. Very cool.

    Oh, this is awesome! I might have to give this a try some time, because I've always wanted my own set of runes to work with. Thanks for sharing!
