Silver runes by karenishra Silver runes by karenishra
Just some silver cast runes. Ever since started casting i wanted to make these for myself. I cast them out of what ended up being about 97-98% pure silver. I undershot the amount of pure silver casting shot i thought i would need. So i had to add some sterling to get enough to cast.

the symbol on the back of the runes is a geometric pattern the place the position of the nine worlds on the world tree.

Awesome.

This sort of reminds me of a pouch I wanted to make for my tarot cards out of fox hide. I tried three times to trap one and never did, so instead I left an offering and left it at that. :)

I love these. I also agree with yoru comment below...any excuse to cast vs. fabricate is a good excuse lol. OUt of curiosity...do you sprue flat to the back, or on end on a large flat slab like these?

I sprued them to a corner on each tile. I cast 8 at a time. And they aren't that big only about an inch by half an inch.

Oh gods above. That set is amazing. I need to upload more of my clay runes I created by hand. Yours I can see had a lot of time and effort as well as skill in them.
