Sprites – Make Your Own Runes

Contributor Unknown

4 cups flour
1 cup salt
1 teaspoon alum (in spice section of grocery store)
1 1/2 cups water
food coloring (optional)

Mix all ingredients in a large mixing bowl. If it is too dry, add a tablespoon of water. Work into dough with your hands.

If you want to color the dough, divide into parts, and add food coloring to each section and knead.

Roll out dough with a rolling pin on a slightly floured surface. Cut dough into squares or rectangles. Use a toothpick to carve the rune into the tile. Place the rune tiles gently onto an ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake for 30 minutes in 250 degree oven. Turn and bake another 1 1/2 hours until hard and dry.

Let cool completely. Sand lightly with fine sandpaper. Spray with clear shellac or acrylic spray.
