You'll need crochet hooks.

You can use any size hook...I recommend the metal ones,
but I am sure the plastic ones would work too...after all,
I've made lightsabers and sonic screwdrivers out of plastic pens.

You'll need bake hard polymer clay too...like fimo or sculpey.
(I used a combo of both, since I am running low on stock!)

Step 2: The Elder Wand

"And desire for the Elder Wand, the Deathstick, unbeatable,
invincible, swallowed him once more."

I began making Prof. Dumbledore's Elder Wand from Harry Potter.
I started with some brown...I swirled it with some white
to give it sort of a marbled "wood-grain" texture.

Take a thin "snake" and twirl it around the handle.
Then roll it between your hands to smooth it out.
Then add some "knots"...Awesome.

Step 3: The Sonic Screwdriver

"Okay, this can function as a sonic blaster, a sonic cannon,
and a triple-fold sonic disruptor. Doc, what you got?"

For the Sonic Screwdriver:
Begin with the same technique of twirly clay around the handle
and smoothing it out by rolling it between hands.

Added silver features and a blue ball on the end.
A flat shape with cut-outs, fits tightly around the tip...
And a slim black line...
A Sonic Screwdriver worth of the Doctor himself.

Step 4: The Lord of the Rings

The Lord of the Rings inspired...
Lothlorien Leaf and the One Ring.

"One Ring to rule them all,
One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all
and in the darkness bind them."

Same start as the others.
With a twirl of green like a vine.
To make the ring, I just pressed a piece of gold clay
and inscribbled some markings on it.

And just wrapped it around the end.
I also make a 3 pointed leaf and outlined it in silver.

I LOOVE this! Now I have to hit up my local craft store for clay....because that Sonic Screwdriver is soooo mine. Oh, and I voted for it, too! *wanders off muttering something about Anders' staff from Dragon Age 2 as well*

These are beautiful, I have a problem with my thumb going numb rubbing it on the numbers I can coat them with clay and write the numbers somewhere else.

Excellent it is one of those hit yourself in the head deals. Thanks for the great Instructable...
