Hand Crafted by Ann Moura
Here are some of the items I have created in the past. No two are exactly alike because each is handmade. I wrote instructions for these crafts in Grimoire for the Green Witch.
I have made Celtic Ogham fews and casting cloths or casting boards, as well as Elder Futhark Runes with pouch to hold them. The fews and runes are burned onto wood, then sanded, shellaced and sanded again for a smooth finish.
Casting cloths can be in any color or even patterns found personally appealing. Every Ogham and casting cloth set is unique, and I even made one in which the drawstring bag that held the fews opened up to be the casting cloth. Runes do not normally come with a casting cloth, but there is no reason why one cannot be created and decorated as desired.
I also enjoy creating black mirrors with herbs and a bindrune behind the glass. I normally use glass photo frames that can stand up or be held in your hands, such as with oval shaped glass of 3 inch by 5 inch or larger ones of 8 inch by 10 inch. Instructions for this project can be found in Grimoire for the Green Witch, and in more detail in Green Witchcraft IV: Walking the Faerie Path.

This is a picture of a mirror I made during a Blue Moon, charged with the lunar energy, sealed with herbs and bindrune. Such a mirror can be used for scrying the future, the past, the present, past lives, meditating, and traveling to other worlds and planes.
