Translation of Words

Postby Frog » 04 Oct 2010, 12:43

Hello Everyone,

At a friend's house, I saw a lovely framed item that she had been given by another friend. What impressed me was that it was Ogham... my friend had thought it was just a leaf picture!

Anyways, with Christmas approaching, I have decided to do something similar for my friends. Could anyone provide me with the Ogham lettering for the following English words (I realise that they will need to be translated to Celtic to work properly - and that's the bit I fail on):

Thanks
Friends
Peace


Many thanks to you all in advance.

Frog

(P.S. I will also post this in the Celtic Section too)

Enjoy this life. It would be a shame if we looked forward to the next, only to find we forgot the one before.

Buiochas -Cairde -Ciunas

I chose these words for this reason; Gratitude/ Friends/ Quietness

Here is what I have.....

The other "peace" (siochain) was one of 'manners' and was more related to a "keeping of the Peace" as in a judicial or marshal way.

Mark,

That's brilliant - thank you.

I can now get on.. the Ogham bit's the easy one (of course!) it'll be the lettering at the bottom that will be the challenge... finding the right font (and brush!!)

Many thanks
Frog

Thanks Frog..!!!

I thought you might like it... :grin:

A suggestion....

You could also simply cut the Ogham script directly into the wood and then backfill it with either paint or charcoal or colored putty of some sort. Then varnish it over so it appears to be part of the wood.

If you choose a color of insert that is only slightly off from the wood color it would be nearly indistinguishable and would appear to be a natural part of the wood.

hi!

That sounds great - and perhaps another project.

I've got some beautful thick paper (art style) which I'm going to paint onto; the intention is then to "rough" the edges (tear/tease) before putting it into a frame.

My wife has a suggestion that worked out very well for a ritual I performed (a hand-fasting actually) this past May...

"Weather" the pages by soaking the paper in tea leaves or coffee grounds.
It would give it that "Old" look as if the paper was decades old instead of mere days...

That's great Mark! I'll have a play with this - it will add further effect to it all! Thank you!
