Introduction: Pyro-engraved Ouija Board

About: I'm Kozmic Blues! I'm always thinking and looking for new things to do. I also love Rock music and I usually mix both things to do my own accessories or clothes. I hope you'll enjoy my projects!


Ouija boards are beautiful art pieces, although I don't believe at all in their supposed mystical properties. A few months ago I had the idea to make a personalised pyro-engraved ouija board... and here it is!

Materials: 

- Wood
- Wood Burner
- Coloured varnish
- Credit Card (to do the planchette)
- Guitar pick (to use as the pattern)

I first chose a small piece of wood (13cm x 8cm aprox). During a boring day I designed the ouija board itself using meaningless motifs but also runes (the symbols on the corners) and the words "yes", "no" and "goodbye" in old english to give it an ancient touch. I drew all the symbols, letters and numbers on the wood and then I pyro-engraved them.

Finally I varnished the board with coloured varnish to make it look older and a bit creepier. To do the planchette I drew something similar to a guitar pick on an old credit card and I cut it. To make the hole on the top corner I used a heated wire and, with a lot of patience, I made the hole bigger and bigger. Finally I painted the planchette with black paint.
