It's been so long since my last post that, yes, I must post twice in a row! :P
Having covered the things going on in my general sphere lately, I wanted to cover a few miscellaneous things that I just felt like updating you about, dear readers!
Black Arts Oil
A while back I made Black Arts oil and posted about it. In addition to a recipe and method for making it, I posted a picture of the product immediately after bottling and shaking. Since then, as happened with the other oil I made and put into a mana potion bottle...after the ingredients settled, this little project took on an artistic little turn, as shown in the picture to the left!
This somehow looks very fitting, and I really like it! A lot of the tiny granules of sulphur settled on the tendrils of the spanish moss, and it looks a bit like something twisted and ash-covered in there.
The Witch's Jar
My initial uses of my new Witch's Jar have seen positive results. It has been a few weeks since I last used it, so I need to get cracking on that if for nothing else than to test the extent of its abilities.
Handmade Mojo Bags
In the past week or so, I made a set of red flannel bags by for use in making Mojo or Conjure Hands. In Strategic Sorcery, Jason teaches a specific method of constructing them that was taught to him by Papa Legba. In the same lesson, he goes on to give two recipes he has used with success. I took the one for finding a job and modified it for long-term employment ends as well as finding secondary income while working a full-time job. I'll update with the results once I actually make and empower it.
videos about hand-sewing, put the stuff I learned there into practice, and now I can get through a bag in about 20 minutes.
