Runes

I had seen a post about someone who made their own runes. Always thought they were a nifty divination techniques so I decided to make my own.


I used polymer clay and swirled red, yellow, and orange together. The disks were baked and then I painted the rune symbols on there with black acrylic paint. Once it was dry I put a polymer clay glaze on them. Kind of annoyed with the glaze because I couldn't find matte at the time and had to use Satin and if I didn't do it right, some of them would peel. Blah, so all is good in the end though. They were a lot of fun to make and will definately try making more again in the future.

Nice job! I've made my own runes! I used those flat glass marbles/stones and a paint pen to decorate them. I've also made them with clay and etched the symbols on each one.

Thanks! I thought about maybe etching them in next time and painting the etched part with paint, just so it's less likely to rubb off, but not sure.

Nice!
I use polymer clay too, have you tried adding scent oils to them? I haven't yet, but aparently it works. Smelly runes...Mmmm! I really like your runes, I think they are striking, but how did you get them so perfectly round and looking all the same size?

Re: Nice!
I have not tried adding scented oils to them, but it sounds like a very nifty idea. The size of each disk was more of an estimation. I took my clay, divided it in half, then each half was divided in half again, and so on until I had the amount of pieces I needed for the runes. I think I tried to make the roughly the size of a quarter.
