The Man came home from a recent trip with a novel little toy (to add to our ever-growing collection of novel little toys) – a Buddha Board. The marketing concept behind it caused my eyes to roll so far back in my head it was 1986 again (weeeee Madonna bracelets!!), but once I’d “painted” the mandatory ensō, lady front-garden (avec rocking 70’s porno bush) and giant cock and balls (don’t LIE; you would totally have done the same), I realised the perfect application for this yuppie (or whatever we call them now) toy:
I don’t nececessarily subscribe to the set-it-and-forget-it NOW method of charging (in fact, I’ve had much better results with gently-absorbing-over-an-extended-period-of-time), but the Buddha Board seems expressly made for this purpose. Depending on how hot and dry your environment is, you have anything from only a few seconds to several minutes to paint and charge your sigil before it’s gone forever.
(Gordon at Rune Soup has far more knowledge and experience with this than I do!)
