PostSubject: Ouija/Spirit Board!   Mon Jul 28, 2008 2:48 pm

I've wanted a "real" spirit board for a while. So, when we had some leftover particle board from putting the AC in the window, I thought "Hmmmm....."

So here are some pics leading up to the finished product:

My tools:


The beginning (I downloaded fonts, then cut each letter out individually, then traced it onto the board, and then burned it in):


The skull I did up top (used a skull clipart as a guide, and altered it to make it easier to wood burn):


Closeup of "yea":


Finished product. I burned the edges on the electric burners on my stove (don't do that, it can be dangerous), then put the whole board in the oven, then sandpapered the charcoaled edges, and did a wash of watered down brown paint:


Planchetter/pointer. It was a heart shaped wooden thingie from a craft store. I stenciled the skeleton hand on and burned it in, burned the edges on the stove, then put it in the oven (longer than the board, because it was a light pine, as opposed to a medium shade particle board), and then put the brown paint wash on it:

It is very beautifully made, well done Shauna!

I could never use a Ouija board myself, makes me too uneasy!

Thanks you two!

Well, I've always wanted one....and this year's Hallowe'en party will have the spare room upstairs as a witch/voodoo/psychic room,so I thought it would make a good prop.

AND, I finally have my own handmade spirit board. Smile Yay!

Shauna that looks awesome. I love the pointer.

That's so awesome! I would love to use it, actually. I have a store bought one, but it's just not the same.

Probably, but the market is actually SATURATED with pyrographed spirit boards. This one took FOREVER because of my hands, so it would end up costing a lot more than someone would be willing to pay.
