You will need the following items to make a batch of orgone, roughly 24-36+ pieces (this result, of course, depends on the amount of materials you have):
1 painter's stick
Preferably, 2 living bodies
1 or 2 metal coffee can(s), bent at the top to form a spout of sorts.
Old muffin pans, ceramic/glass cups (NO PLASTIC!!!!)
Fiberglass auto resin. Alternatively a similar, clear resin can be found at some arts and crafts stores (Like Hobby Lobby, here in the usa), however it comes in much smaller quantities. I would only recommend this if you have the money to throw out, or for a very small batch of orgone (appx 20 pieces).
Aluminum shavings, powder, or pieces (these can be found at scrap metal yards/processing facilities for very cheap)
quartz crystals, enough to put at least one crystal in each mold(the clearer the crystal, the cleaner the energy)
copper wire (enough to wrap clockwise around individual quartz crystals or enough to wrap 1 clockwise spiral per mold)
copper balls if you so choose.
specifically neodymium magnets, if you so choose.
At least, 1 nail or screw, deep enough to hit the bottom of your molds.
Vegetable oil, Crisco, or lard
A table that can handle some fiber glass resin spills.
When choosing crystals, be sure to choose those that will fit into your molds without poking out of (what will be) the bottom. Choose any gauge of copper wire you like, but remember it is the primary conductor for the shape in which the crystal's energy will project outward. Adding extra metals that are conductive should, in theory, create a stronger amplification of the crystal's energy. Be CAUTIOUS if you choose to use crystals other than quartz, or if you add other crystals with the quartz. Be sure you know the properties of whatever crystal(s) you use and gauge whether or not the crystal will work with or against the nature or frequency of the basic orgone energy. I would recommend Google'ing to see what kind of crystals other people have used in their orgone and why.
NOTE: Depending on your climate and elevation it can take anywhere from an hour to a day for the fiber glass auto resin to ENTIRELY solidify.
Step 1: Wrap CLOCKWISE individual crystals with copper wire OR wrap CLOCKWISE a single copper coil, with a diameter that leaves at most a 1/2" of space between the end of the mold and the wire.
Step 2: Grease your molds up with the paper towels and your choice of greasy lubricant.
Step 3: Set up your table with your molds and start filling. Attempt to visualize what you want your orgone pieces to look like when they come out of their molds. I place loose metals (magnets included) in first if I'm using individually wrapped crystals. Otherwise, place your copper wire in first, then cover with loose metals and place the crystals inside your copper coil.. You want your molds to be filled with metals between 1/2 and 3/4 of the mold.
Step 4: I have never used anything other than the auto fiber glass resin you can buy at an auto shop, so methods may change depending on your choice of solidifying agent. A couple tubes of chemical come with the large container and I get the best results if I split the resin in half, using the coffee can, and add between 3/4 of a tube, or 1 full tube to one half, mixing with the painter's stick. To mix the entire gallon at once, roughly 1 tube and 1/4 of a tube works. Just remember, the more tube chemical you add, the faster the resin will solidify. You can always add more tube chemical, and generally, when mixing, mixture will slightly thicken meaning it's beginning to react. Be cautious because the resin will heat up while you're pouring.
Preferrably, while someone pours resin into the molds, another pokes the nail to the bottom of each mold (a few times), thus removing air bubbles and making sure the resin reaches the entirety of the mold. You can skip the nail poking, but you risk having incomplete orgone.
Let your orgone sit until it's completely solidified, not sticky, and turn out by any means possible. If your orgone has an uneven bottom, you can use a steel or iron file to file away the fiberglass resin or any particulate matter sticking out from the resin. If you have any questions, please ask. I will respond in a timely manner.
Update 01/17/2011: I've added a useful tool for making orgonite to my page beneath the content warning. It is a .pdf titled 'An Introduction to Orgonite Matrix Material'. I would highly recommend this reading for those who are looking for a deeper understanding of orgonite, or who wish to make their own creations. If you have any trouble downloading, message me and I can e-mail you the book instead.
Hi Beth awesome post much much needed basics
I can dig it! will you add pics by step here too?
