Thanks for the nice comments. The DDT decks are amazing and I wanted to have something special for it. I did not construct the box itself. I purchased it at a craft store for $5. They have plain unstained / unpainted boxes that normally have defects of some sort - mostly just cosmetic. I think the defects make it age better and they carry enough of the same type throughout the season to make as many as you wanted.

I love the Dark Dawn Tarot.

Christopher Gould at Alchemy Moon made me a wonderful box to keep them in. It has the design from the back of the cards incorporated on the top of the box. He did an awesome job. I don't think the boxes are officially available anymore, but it may be possible to commission a similar type of box if anyone fancies one.

$5 for the box is great find - what craft store would this be ? Would love to if it's a chain store & may have one or something like near me......
You did a great job staining etch / burned symbol's on it nicely.

Thanks. I usually look at Michaels for plain boxes. AC Moore would be another that would have things like that. I have not really checked out hobby lobby. If you get the "Michaels app" for you phone - all existing coupons and even bonus ones are on it and they will scan them off your phone at the register. Normally you will always find a 40% coupon in there and a lot of times 25% entire purchase coupons as well. If you own a business you can also get a resale account there (No tax since you are buying it to resell). Boxes are already cheap the one above was $5.99 - but once you use all the coupons etc they are even less. They also will sell metal corners and rivets etc. While you are there, they also sell all the krylon sprays you may want for making gimmicks.

also...The latches on most of the boxes are typically super lame. You will normally need to change that.

Got it, thank you all! Thanks to TH1, Bedford, Pasteboard Alchemist, and Ray. If there is a dark dawn tarot owner out there that needs the directions, pm me your email address. I will send directions to you. It is brief and explain the works. Tell me how many candles on the high priestess card to verify ownership.

Bravo! Gorgeous work and easily passable as a worn deck of arcana from a time gone bye! I look forward to working them into a routine with a Hobbs Hand.

Like the others, I'm really admiring my new set of Dark Dawn tarots. They actually present a little bit of a dilemma for me - I don't know if I should actually put them into the act, or frame them as works of art. I would venture to say that I believe these are a collectable item in the making. In my opinion, a rock solid investment.

Can't stop fidgeting with them. Well done Outlaw!


Correct you were, collectable they are. You had great insight so maybe you should do readings.....

Does anyone remember what the Dark Dawn sold for? Thinking of selling mine and want to be fair.

Thanks.
