Orgonite is made from three basic materials.
Metal shavings (a conductive material) bound in and separated by resin (a non-conductive material).
These materials are best combined in equal parts (by volume).
Natural crystalline stone interacts with these materials to produce the electrostriction effect that greatly enhances the transmutation poterntial of the compound.
In this article; we will be looking at Resin.
Polyester Resin is used for making fiberglass amongst other things and is a practical choice for making orgonite too.
It is readily available, easy to use and hardens to form a durable, weather-proof material that can be cast in a variety of shapes and sizes.
Polyester resin comes in a variety of grades but is generally a clear or slightly coloured liquid which is mixed with a tiny quantity of Catalyst which acts as a hardener.
Once the catalyst is mixed thoroughly with the resin; it will begin the hardening process.
The time that this process takes depends on both the grade of the resin and the quantity of catalyst added.
The vendor will be able to advise on exact proportions of catalyst for each grade of resin.
The clear, expensive grades are usually slow-maturing and the cheaper, coloured resins generally mature more quickly.
I like to place the metal shavings and crystal material in the mould before pouring the catalysed resin.
Resin is the most expensive material used in making orgonite and I take care not to waste it in any way.
Catalysed resin will produce a strong odour and it is advised that it should only be mixed in a well-ventilated area.
The working surface should also be covered with newspaper or similar as the inevitable spots of resin may be difficult to remove.
Acetone mixes easily with uncatalysed resin and can be used for cleaning hands etc.
Catalysed resin can be removed from ones fingers with a damp cloth before it has hardened but care should be taken to work in a clean and organised manner.
Epoxy Resin can also be used but is rather more expensive and less practical than Polyester Resin.
In Indonesia there is a tree-resin called Damar that makes good orgonite but it fails to harden and is inconvenient for gifting.
The only possible alternative to resin is Sugar but it requires precise temperatures in the preparation stage and remains soft and sticky when cool so needs to be stored in jars.
Bees wax was suggested as a natural alternative to polyester resin but it was found to only accumulates negative energy and becomes saturated over time.
