The glaze dries to a soft shine, not particularly glossy, but reflective enough to dance slightly in the candle light. The Runes are light in the hand, yet solid. They mix easily in their basket, and the time spent in patient smoothing of the edges makes them a joy to handle.

The First Three Draws

The First Three Draws

In the first three draws, Gebo came up twice, as did Erda. The Runes feel as though they sing in my hand, and reading them required no effort. I saw them, and simply knew what they had to say.

I am beyond excited about reading with these Runes, and would encourage anyone who reads to consider making their own set. I feel attuned to these in a way that I have not felt with any other set (and believe me, some of my Oracles have very strong personalities), and I am madly in love with these Runes!

Total materials costs: Just under $20.

Work time: Six hours.

Having my own set of extended Runes: Magical!
