The orgonite Recipe by Arthren.
Here is a quick guide on how to produce your very own Orgone devices. I hope it helps you all to gift this planet with some beautiful Orgone energy.
Quartz Crystal point and perhaps other crystals
Molds for your Orgonite
Crystals and gemstones:-
A Quartz crystal. This is one of the 3 main important parts of the modern Orgone devices. You must use a real Quartz crystal in your Orgonite, as this provides the piezoelectric part of the orgonite device. I would suggest using a crystal point, as rock quartz is said not to be as effective. Also Rose quartz (rock quartz) is said not to provide the peizo effect. You can if needed crush up the Quartz point if you are making smaller orgonite devices, so long as you use some bits no smaller than 3mm. You can use more than one Quartz Crystal, also you can wire wrap the crystal.
Other Crystals and gems:-
As said above You Must use a piece of real quartz crystal point. The other crystals used in Orgonite are based mainly on your own preference. You may choose to use crystals that have a grounding effect, or a protective effect, or that associate to certain chakras, even your own birthstone or locally found crystals. Its all about your own choice, as long as you have the Quartz point, any additional crystals are purely there to help the Orgonite device achieve what you wish it to. There are many books and a lot of information on the Internet that will provide advice on what properties certain crystals have. Don’t worry about crushing up the gems/crystals to add to Orgonite, they will have the same effect, and this makes them easier to add to pendants and jewellery.
You don’t even need to add any other crystals and gems so long as you have the quartz crystal point.
As an example I like to use a Quartz Crystal point, a small bit of gem Opal, Pyrite, Hematite, Selenite, Citrine, Amethyst, Kyanite, Rose Quartz, Lapis Lazuli, Tourmaline and a few other crystals all in one Orgonite Device.
To put it simply just make sure you have a Quartz crystal point, you really don’t have to add any other crystals if you choose not to. The Quartz crystal should be of reasonable size for the Orgonite device. This is also personal preference but I feel a 2cm Quartz crystal point in a 5 Gallon Orgonite device would be a little drowned out by the size of the device. Therefore a large crystal would be more suitable for this.
On a side note, you can even add a few herbs.
There are really 3 main things about the metals to be used.
1:- Smaller/finer bits of metal are better than larger chunks IE: Fine brass shavings are better than large steel nails. The main thing is to get as many finer parts of metal mixed with the resin as possible. Hence why fine Iron/copper powder or nano powder is one of the best to use as it provides move surface area per cm2 of metal to resin.
2:- Its not advisable to use Lead or other toxic metals.
The best metals seem to be:
(in no particular order)
Your choice of these will depend on what you can afford and purchase.
3:- If you have got metal shavings from a machining shop, such as a key cutters or metal works workshop. There maybe some oil/grease on the metal, its a good idea to wash it in hot water with some washing up liquid or similar, to remove this grease/oil. This really helps with the resin bonding to the metal.
This is very important for your orgone / orgonite device. It is also the most messy part of construction, and the part where
There are so many resins available that this can be a very confusing part. So I will suggest the main things to look for and the main things to avoid. The most widely used resin in Orgonite is Polyester based resin, this is available in various forms such as Slow Cure, Fast Cure, Water Clear, 1 to 1 mix and a % catalyst (hardener) such as 3% catalyst curing agent to 97% resin etc. It all depends on what application you need for your resin. I wouldn’t recommend Water Clear resin for gifting Tbs (TB= Tower Buster), due to how expensive it is. Water clear is best for Jewellery or Ornamental style orgonite. But that’s just a personal view.
What to look for:-
Polyester Resin that has a % of shrink-ability when it cures. This provides the Quartz Crystal Point with its piezo effect in the orgonite.
Resin that has the least amount of VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) more on this later.
How thick the resin can be poured when curing. Some can only be cured in thin layers due to heat build up, make sure you check on how thick you can pour, as this could cause cracks, or discolouring.
What to Avoid:-
Resin that does not have any %shrink-ability when cured.
Resin that has a high VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) content.
As there are many types of resin its best to check the manufacturers data sheet to find out if it will be suitable for our purposes. Almost all Polyester based resins will have VOCs, so avoiding these will prove almost impossible, but as technology and manufacturing improves these are getting better.
There are some totally organic resins made using plant extracts such as Linseed oil based resins that can be cured using UV light, therefore give of little or no smell and do not contain the VOCs. Unfortunately these have some limitations, and as much as I would love to use this type of resin and I did buy a 5L container of it, it is of limited use for our purpose. The draw backs are that it has very very low shrink% and it has a very limited depth of cure, about 5mm. Plus due to it needing UV light to cure it, it cannot be used when mixed with metals etc as the UV light cannot penetrate through the metal to cure the resin. The best use for this I have found is as a 1mm thick safe coating, to be used over the polyester resin in jewellery applications. This provides a barrier between the resin containing VOCs and our skin. Other things such as a clear Acrylic toy safe coating can also be used in this application of making a safe coat, and is more readily available and cheaper.
I am always on the look out for a better, safer and more environmentally friendly forms of resin, that is suitable for Orgonite, but as of the time of writing I have yet to find one that is available in the UK, or is viable to use due to postage costs from else where in the world. This maybe different in other countries and I would love to hear from you if you know of a better resin to use.
You can use your imagination here This is where you can really get creative with your Orgonite!
Anything from Muffin baking trays, yogurt pots, paper cups etc. Really so long as it can hold boiling water it should in theory be able to hold curing resin. REMEBER resin heats up due to the chemical reaction between the resin and curing agent as it cures! So plastic can melt while the resin cures.
Silicon muffin trays are very very good and they release the Orgonite device easily after it has cured.
Some people use Martini style glasses, its recommended you spray a little cooking oil or release agent into the glass before you pour to help with the release. The same goes for any metal mold, using a release agent or cooking oil spray helps alot.
Some people also freeze the resin after it has cured to help it release from a mold, I’ve done this and it does seem to help.
As always don’t use anything you will want to use for other things such as food preparation. What you use for making Orgonite, keep it only for making orgonite.
Please note LATEX molds will not work very well, They react to the resin used and produce a sticky mess usually.
Don’t stress yourself too much about this part, but its good to have a relaxed state of mind and body before you pour. And to have good intentions before and during your pour. Some people are better at this than others, as I say don’t worry your orgonite will work, but its nice to give it good intention while your making it.
Think of people you love, think good thoughts and feelings, think about saving the planet. Anything that makes you happy and feel good.
You can also wash your crystals in sea water or clean water from a stream or river. Also leaving them on a tray in the sunshine helps to cleanse them.
You can also write down messages of love on paper and add them to your Orgonite devices.
All this will help with your connection to the orgonite and to give it more intention.
Meditation is good for helping with intention.
Pouring and Curing:-
First things first. Safety! Always read the label and the manufacturers data sheet. Always wear Eye protection, rubber or nitrile gloves, latex gloves tend to split just at the wrong moment…, and old clothes. Also breathing apparatus is highly recommended! Only pour in a well ventilated area, preferably outdoors, some of the resins stink…. And make sure pets and children are safely kept away. Letting other people you live with know not to disturb you for an hour or 2 is a good idea too.
Use a mixing container that you will not use for anything else. Don’t use anything that you wish to use for food preparation at a later date. It’s best to label the mixing container so it doesn’t get used for anything else. A plastic measuring jug is great for this and they are cheap. Plastic containers are good because after a few pours you can split off the left over cured resin on the inside and use this in other devices so you have less waste.
Polyester Resin cures fast. Sometimes it begins to gel within 20 minutes after been mixed with the cataylist, so you need to make sure everything is fully prepared and on hand before you begin.
Remember that resin heats up when curing, so if your making a 5 Gallon Cloud-Buster, don’t pour the whole 5 gallons in one go, pour it in layers and let each layer fully cure or at least part cure before adding the next layer. There is a strong possibility if you pour your resin too thick that it will crack or discolour. This shouldn’t be a problem when pouring smaller devices such as TB’s or HHGs, but its worth bearing in mind, see types of resin for more information.
Prepare all molds with the metals and crystals before mixing the resin.
Read the label and mix up the correct amount of curing agent (cataylist) to resin. This is important, and its the one part of this where it can go wrong. Mix the curing agent with the resin really well! Make sure you scrape around the sides of the container you are mixing in and on the bottom, leaving no part of the resin un-mixed. We don’t want sticky resin or un-cured parts of resin in our finished product. When mixing try not to get too many air bubbles in the resin, not too important for gifting devices but very important for ornamental or jewellery devices. I leave mine for 5 to 10 Min’s after mixing to let the air bubbles float up and release, although this is dependant on how much time you have before it starts to cure. The resin will cure faster on very hot summer days than in the middle of winter, your going to have to use your own judgement upon this.
Ok so now your ready to pour. Carefully pour all your molds and mix the resin into all the metal, so everything is coated in the resin, trying not to add any air bubbles when pouring and mixing, slowly does it is the key. Top them up as necessary, and have a few extra molds ready in-case you have some left over resin so that you don’t have any waste.
I cover my devices while they cure under an old baking tray net cover, this stops insects and other such things landing in my Orgonite while it cures safely outside.
Now its a case of waiting for it to fully cure, I leave mine at least 24-48 hours.
If you happen to get sticky resin after it has cured, don’t dis-spare, just try not to handle it too much and leave it to cure for longer, perhaps you didn’t leave them for long enough. Also freezing it can help solve this.
If your still having a sticky problem you could always get some spray varnish and coat them, or keep them and use them in larger devices at a later date, such as a Cloudbuster.
So don’t throw them away, everyone who makes Orgonite sooner or later will have this problem.
Uncured areas may mean that you didn’t mix the curing agent in fully or that you didn’t add enough curing agent. Check the label again, if you know you added enough then perhaps you didn’t mix it well enough.
Notes on more ornamental Orgonite Devices:-
As you may have seen on the web, ebay etc some people make very ornamental devices. These are poured and cured in different layers.
Remember when pouring into a mold often the bottom of the mold will be the top of the device. So your making the device from top to bottom.
These can be as complex or as simple as you want to make them. Its also worth noting that its best to make a creative device while you are making other devices at the same time. This reduces on wastage of resin. Mixing up 50ml of resin would be a bit wasteful as you will end up with a lot of the resin sticking to the mixing container etc, so why not mix up enough to make some TB’s at the same time thus reducing the wastage.
Fully cured or at least partially cured between each layer.
(this is how you would pour into a mold, remember often the bottom of the mould will turn out been the top of the device)
Layer1 a clear layer with a crystal.
Layer 2 a clear layer with some other gems added.
Layer 3 a layer of copper shavings.
Layer 4 a layer of aluminium shavings.
These pictures show a Fine Silver pendant I made, I sanded off the base of the pendant to show the layering, there are 3 layers in this pendant, the bottom is an fine aluminum dust with a small quartz singing crystal and fine quartz dust and resin (the grey/silvery layer), the second layer is more crystals and gems, an SBB coil cured in water clear resin, the third and top layer is linseed oil resin mixed with gold flake and opals.
Making Orgonite is fun, and can be very creative. Your imagination is the only limit, and practice makes perfect.
What I have written here isn’t gospel, people have their own ways and methods for how they make Orgonite. I’ve just written this out for guidelines and to help people make their own orgonite and avoiding the pitfalls of making it. My best suggestion is to do a little bit of research, on the resins, crystals, metals, and molds. Don’t spend too much, check out the £1 shops and charity shops for molds, mixing containers and cooking spray oil.
Peace and love
Orgone is what orgone does,
brings us life,
gives us love.The sun still shines on a cloudy day,
chemtrails cover but run away
