I used Vistaprint to print my "Rustic" Ouija Board design. The poster arrived a few days early, so I was able to complete the board this weekend, in time for Halloween. I had to use an oversized poster (16" x 20") and cut it down to fit to 12" x 16". I also needed to cut off the 1/4" margin that I had allowed.
I used an Elmer's Washable School Glue Stick to adhere the poster to the hardboard. I mistakenly didn't coat the full back of the poster, so there were some air pockets, but not enough to interfere with the poster laying flat and working correctly as a "Spirit Talking Board" (Ouija Board).
I used the following for the board:
Pro Art Hardboard Panel, 12"-by-16", 12x16
The total cost was on the expensive side, so if I want to "mass" produce boards, I'll need to find a way to get my costs down.
Also, I need to produce an accompanying planchette. I have a design for one, but it needs to be cut out of the wood I applied it to. But I need a more practical production method for that, too.
This is 1 of 3 posts of photographs that I took at Seaside Sanatorium in Waterford, CT this past week.
area is now a Connecticut State Park, but the buildings themselves are
surrounded by chain link fence to prevent trespassing. Unfortunately in
the past, vandals broke windows and sprayed graffiti on the inside and
Birds were perched on the ship weathervane, as well as the gables of the side building. The site is beautiful, with scenic views of Long Island Sound.
Seaside Sanatorium was "originally built as a facility to treat children with tuberculosis," and "has had a long history serving as a medical facility."
