Make Your Own Quill Pen
Merry Meet :))
Many of us keep Books of Shadows to collect information that we learn on our path in our craft. There are lots of things you can do to aid in the magick of your book. One of them is by using a magickal writing tool. A quill pen is something that our ancestors would have used and is really easy to make. Go on a walk in the woods or other appropriate area and find a feather that you would like to use as a quill pen. The feather should be fairly large and feel comfortable in your hand as you will be using it to write with. You want to make sure that the tip of the feather, the part you will write with is long as you will be holding it in your hand to write with. You may want to bring home several feathers to experiment with.
When you get the feather home you want to use a knife to cut it at a 45 degree angle. Craft knifes are easiest for this, however I've been able to do it with a really sharp kitchen knife. Once you have the feather cut on an angle at the tip, use tweezers and or a pin to clean out the inside of the feather. This is the part where the ink will go in. You will need to get a pot of ink to go with it. Try writing with it. :))))) When you find one that you love, you can consecrate it and store it with your Book of Shadows.
Love and Blessings,
