My Dad’s First Orgonite Pour

My dad poured his first batch of orgonite tower busters (TB’s) the other day, using BB’s, pot scrubbers, and crystals ($24) he purchased from a rock shop in town. He picked up the polyester resin ($35 gallon), muffin tins ($10 each), BB’s ($10), and pot scrubbers ($4) from Walmart. If you buy your quartz crystals from an online shop, such as eBay or Etsy, you may find better prices.

Step 3: Add crystals, 1 or 2 depending on their size; in this case, two small 3 cm quartz crystals.

Step 4: Add metal on top of the crystals; in this case, steel BB’s; don’t make BB’s the primary source of metal, they are heavy and don’t test out high with an ion air meter, but they can be a good auxiliary source of metal.

Step 5: Mix polyester resin (900 ml for 12 TB’s, or 450 ml for 24 mini TB’s) with the hardening catalyst, and pour into the molds. For safety, pour in a well ventilated space, preferably outside, or wear a respirator. Also use safety gloves and protective equipment to ensure you do not get the resin on your skin. I am sure this goes without saying, but please do NOT reuse the muffin pan or the mixing cup for food after using them for a batch of orgonite!!!

Step 6: Allow to harden, which depends on the temperature where it is being poured, and the amount of catalyst mixed into the resin. 1-2 hours.
