I really want to makes some rune stones (like paint runes onto stones/rocks/pebbles from my backyard). But I’m not sure what ones to do. Does anyone have any pointers on what to do them on, when to do them, what colour the paint should be, what runes I should do, please message me! Or if anyone knows of any good websites or blogs about runes. Thank you darlings!
My first set was on a bunch of very soft stones from the creek near the house I grew up in. I carved with with a vintage nail file since I didn’t have a Dremel.
However, any nicely balanced stone (one that isn’t weighted toward one side or the other) will work. I use acrylic paints; they’re inexpensive and easy to use, and you can get acrylic spray sealant easily, too.
Red is traditional, but IIRC that’s in part because the runes used to be painted with the reader’s blood. I would recommend doing your research first before deciding on which futhark (set of runes) to work with; the Elder Futhark is most popular, but there are others.
Good books to start with are Edred Thorsson’s “Futhark: A Handbook of Rune Magic” and Diana Paxson’s “Taking Up the Runes”. And here’s a good site to start with.
