How to Make a Clay Spell Tablet
Spell Tablets

Roll a piece of clay out to make a spell tablet of your own.

In some areas, curses and spells were inscribed upon thin sheets of clay, rather than metal. They were rolled up and disposed of just like their metal counterparts. Use a block of soft clay, available in craft supply stores. Flatten the block out with a rolling pin, as thin as you can.

Use a nail or a knife to mark your spell upon the clay. Be sure you don’t press too hard – you don’t want to go all the way through. Once you are done writing your spell upon the tablet, roll it up into a tight tube. Dispose of it by burial or one of the other methods described.
