How to make encharmed waters.
1. Write charm, word or sigil with watercolor pencil.
2. Place it into water while praying, chanting, spinning in circles and drooling, or whatever else does it for you.
3. Once the majority of pigment has run off into the water use it to dress objects, anoint people, sprinkle about a place, add to baths, floor washes, or to the laundry water; or (provided they’re non-toxic) infuse it with herbs to make a potion.
This is cool. Gonna try it, certainly.
If you’re using artist grade watercolor pencils, though, they’re probably gonna be toxic, and it’s a supply you don’t really find in low-grade brands (as far as I know). I’d even be wary of student/mid-grade watercolor pencils, toxicity-wise. Using that little of it probably wouldn’t do anything to you, but let’s avoid ingesting any kinds of heavy metals, shall we?
We can use icing with cake decorating tips. =O
….I like that idea. Or a paintbrush and like, grape juice, that would stain paper really well!
ooo! Or coffee. Which would be really awesome if you were trying to draw wealth to you. Or you could make tea corresponding with your spell and make it like super strong so that you could paint with it!
-excited by the prospect of more edible spells-
omg omg omg omg yes.
Exactly the type of stuff I want to blog about!
Lots of great ideas!
Dido is known best as the queen of Carthage who died for love of Aeneas, according to the Aeneid of Vergil (Virgil).
“Aeneas caused her death and lent the blade,
Dido by her own hand in dust was laid.” (Ovid, Heroides 8).

You finally show your face to me. You show it to me in a dream and now that I know it, I will remember it. Now I can put a face to the one who will not speak to me yet but is there, lurking just beyond my reach. Always shy and elusive when you do pop up.
