For all of my witches out there that are artists or just love art of any kind, here are some things to consider adding to your craft.
Use vine or compressed charcoal dust to make black salt
Use sketchbooks as unique grimoires, book of shadows, book of cosmos, dream journals, etc that allow you to use markers, paints, etc to your heart’s desire
Red liquid ink can substitute for blood
Black liquid ink is good for curses especially for blinding, confusion and chaos
Blue liquid ink can represent water or the ocean
Yellow liquid ink for divination
Green liquid ink for protection and healing spells
Enchant your calligraphy pens for sigil work to strengthen the sigils you make or spells you write with them
Use doodles of people or how you see a person for taglocks in curses and bindings
Melt crayons for wax seals on jars or other spells by placing them in intense sun or heating them in a wax melter (use caution that you don’t heat them too high)
Melt crayons and mix with coconut oil and olive oil for anointing oil corresponding with the colors you use (also can be used as lipstick if desired)*
Use scrapbooking paper in your grimoire to give it unique and artsy pages
Use your paints to make painted spells. Make a sigil and paint it onto your page or canvas, and based on the sigil’s intent once dried paint over it an image that corresponds with that intent to activate. Hang up in your room or home. Cleanse and charge regularly
Glitter my witches, great for color magic and jar spells (note glitter is not good to be tossed into the environment so please don’t)
Write down a person or ‘force’ in your life you wish to remove and use erasers to erase it away as a simple severing spell
Use your dirty paint water for curses or inspiration spells
Use stickers to seal spell jars
Unable to burn something in your apartment? Drench it in black ink or paint instead
Use mechanical pencil lead in curses by break it up. very effective for writer’s block and creativity block curses
Bead enthusiasts or jewelry makers, use your beads to make spell/enchanted jewelry based on colors, shapes, and letters used in it for correspondences
Make your own ouija boards, crystal grids, pendulum charts, etc on some matte board or foam board using paints to make unique affordable tools
Use chalk dust for warding and protection spells
Buy chalkboard paint to turn a wall or other object into a chalkboard for sigil use, spell writing, organization, etc
Use those plastic reusable paint containers for small portable spell jars
Sharpies and black markers are good for curses in general
Use your color wheels for divination via colormancy
Use modeling clay or pottery clay to make your own offering bowls, statuettes and poppets for a variety of uses
For a quick and easy black mirror simply paint the back glass of a picture frame with black acrylic paint. It may take several layers
Reuse bottles and cans by painting them up to make them witchy containers for your tools, art supplies and other storage purposes
Make drawings, write poetry, write stories, make pottery, make a painting, etc to make as offerings to deities, fae, spirits, etc. Just be sure not to sign it if it is for fae (your name can give them power of you)
Use glue or tape to seal spells, for binding and for strengthening spells
Use whiteout for banishing and invisibility spells
Use henna, temporary tats or body safe paint for fun body sigils
Save pencil shavings for inspiration and creativity spells
Enchant your art supplies to bring you creativity, focus, motivation and inspiration when you use them
Use your paints to paint rocks colors for easy color magic
Turn your name into a sigil to sign your artwork so people will recognize it as yours (or other such desires)
Use used paint sponges to absorb negativity before throwing away
Mix paint or ink with water to make color potions or spell jars
Collect markers, crayons, colored pencils, pens, highlighters, etc to use for colorful written spells, amplify sigils, and to strengthen spells
Illustrate your grimoire, book of shadows, dream journal, etc with images that you feel are important or doodles to add your own extra touch to the spells and information inside. Make it your own
Paint, draw, or design your desires or wishes and charge the art in the moonlight to help welcome those things into your life. Keep the piece of art in your room or home
Use lines from your written poetry, stories, lyrics, etc as spell incantations or lines when writing spells to make them more personal
Use old sketchbooks, idea notebooks, free write journals, etc for bibliomancy
Try/Practice automatic writing or drawing for divination and spirit communication
Make collages out of posters, drawings, photos, writings, poems, etc on your wall to act as a low key altar

Ok uhm… I … I found this artist on tumblr ( @konoira ) and you all should really check him out, I looooove his Art style. And bc I’m such an OC-trash I wanted to draw one of his OCs (hope he’s not mad now :x) and uh… yes.. yes, Fanart basically.
Bye!! *runs away*
Okay so I decided to try a couple new things… yes those are the colours you are seeing, I know they look strange but if you can, please invert/negative the colours on your device and you can see the final piece. I’ve never used black paper before, and I’m not the greatest with pencil crayons, its not perfect, but pretty proud.
Also… thanks again @therealjacksepticeye for being such a source of inspiration… I’ve been fighting with some demons and it’s nice to have something I can work with in my corner.
