Runic Pendulum Board by EternalxRequiem Runic Pendulum Board by EternalxRequiem
This is what I've been working on for the last week or so. I was originally going to paint Yggdrasil in the center, but my husband suggested a forest after I'd gotten started and I went with that instead. This is my personal pendulum board. I was going to wood burn it, but my husband broke the wood burner. This piece of wood literally sat in my craft area for six months or more before I decided to do anything with it just last week. The colors might seem tacky to those who don't understand the correspondences to colors in witchcraft, etc. I chose green for the runes and the roman numerals as earth is the element I connect with most and I'd already decided on brown for the trees. Purple is a color connected to clairvoyance or pyschic skills which is why I choose it for the bindrune to the left of the tree, the rune Tiwaz on the right of the tree and the "yes" and "no". The bindrune is for protection while divining, seeing the hidden messages or guidance and communicating with deity. I added Tiwaz to the right to keep my practice honorable.

Edit: I forgot to mention that I'll also be using this for rune castings as well.

I'm considering selling custom pendulum boards, but we'll see if I ever get that far. If you want to share this I just ask that you please be a decent individual and give me credit as I worked hard on this, I took the photo and it's not yours what-so-ever anyway. I also apologize for the crappy watermark thing. I got a free editor for my iPad and I only get to choose the color of the font and resize the text.

I very much love the way this looks, especially the stylized trees in the center.
