With clay. If you don't have an oven or it's just too inconvinent to use one, like me, make your own air dry clay. Make your own so you can have large quantities or clay for maybe....4 dollars. Wrap your workspace with plastic wrap or wax paper. Move on to the cooking part. It's easy. Get one cup of baking soda and one cup of cornstarch. Pour into your pot. Then pour water. The amount of water you need should not be so much that the ingredients turn into water. So maybe 3/4 cup. Use the same cup when you measure so the proportions aren't different. Ingredients should be hard to stir when you turn on the heat. Turn to low heat so clay don't scorch. Stir so the clay doesn't burn. IF notice while stirring that the clay is a little "sandy". Add water slowly while stirring. You want the clay to be able to hold shapes so don't add to much. Stir for maybe 6 minutes plus. Pour product onto table. Knead! IF it's a little dry, don't worry. Go wash your hands and come back to work so the clay is a little damp. Cut into pieces and let dry. Maybe by the next day, you can draw figures and rune signs on it.

The easiest way to make runes is to use clay. You can get clay that you can either bake or just dry. The clay makes it easy to incise the symbols and you can easily cut the clay so that the runes are all the same size and shape.

My son and I planted an Ash tree in our front yard about 20 years ago. I found the perfect sized branch (about 1 inch across), asked permission to use it, and then left an offering. Using a new, blessed hack-saw blade, I cut discs about 1/4 " thick. I then burned the symbols into the Runes using a soldering iron. (you could paint them as well). I use a purple velvet bag (from a Crown Royal Whiskey bottle) to store them. My Runes are designed after the simple ones that Scott Cunningham recommends in "Wicca, The Solitary Practitioner". I still have a large portion of the branch left over. Write me off-line and I'll send it to you (even cut them if you like) Blessed Be

The easiest way to make them is from clay...It soft enough to etch the symbols into and then harden them in the oven
