It should be centered on the cloth, but other than that, nice! :D

Yeah, believe me as a perfectionist, it's been on my mind. I don't want to repaint it at this time, so I may cut it out and sew it centered on another piece of material. lol. Thanks for the kind words!

I see you don't subscribe to the Uthark theory. Lol.

Excellent job on this. And judging by the bits at the bottom, I assume you're a real practitioner and not just someone who enjoys the decoration of it.

May I ask what the black candle is used for?
And the red?

Or are their colors not relevant in your work?

Thank you for the kind words.

You assume correctly.

The colors are merely my own choice, they aren't particularly relevant to my work. I have read that red and black are traditional colors among Indo-european cultures, and they look good, so it's really an aesthetic choice.

Not taking photographs of my entire working area/altar is a choice I make at this time for a number of reasons; firstly I don't want to give anyone the idea that what I have there is merely art to "show". There are other reasons as well.

Very good reason. Altar pictures are a very neo-hippy psuedo-pagan (AKA Wiccan) thing to do. Just a fashion statement for them.

I don't have one yet, but I'm still mulling what I want on it. But being a neophyte makes it hard to decide.

And I know many people who won't take pictures of their altar because it's a profane thing to do. As altars are very personal and spiritual.

May I ask where you bought your candles? I have a site I've been looking at, but I'm always interested in what other sites might hold (though I do think this site has it all, can even buy human finger bones).

Site, in case you're interested -> [link]

Also, if it's not too personal, would you be interested in sharing with me your ritual/magical practices in a note? I'm always very curious to learn more. Because even though our faiths are not the same, there is always some learning that can be done.

Not that I haven't taken photos for my own use of course.

My own area has mostly things which I have crafted myself, I have much more control over ingredients that way, and it's difficult to find things which I feel truly represent how I see things, or properly allign with what I am doing. It's taken quite some time to find certain things.

As for those candles, I think I bought them at a hobby store. I have seen that site before, they seem to have some quality items.

I have purchased incense at this website and they are of high quality: [link]
