    Make PVC Look Like Wood

    Thanks Eric. I made two staffs. One 40mm pipe with 32mm plumbing end caps sanded down. The other 32mm pipe with round 32mm blanking caps bought from ebay, again sanded down. I made a quick tutorial on my fb page @nickdcosplay. Although the tutorial here is much the same! Hope this helps.

    Wow! I have surprised myself at this build! After realising that my cosplay staff was too thick (40mm), i started again with a 32mm pipe. 30 mins later..... and it was done!After the paint is dry, i am going to apply a coat of lacquer to give it extra protection.Thanks again.PS.... follow this tutorial, you cant go wrong!

    A big thank you for this tutorial. My staff has turned out amazing! My cosplay friends are in awe of my quick and simple build! Now the boring bit of watching paint dry! After its dried out, ill apply a layer of lacquer to seal it. Ill post a pic of it shortly.

    Hey. Awesome tutorial. I am in the middle of making a replica staff for cosplay weaponry. Although i have skimmed through the comments, i couldnt actually see how much paint you used on your digeridoo. My staff is 1.5m long and 40mm in diameter. How much paint do you think i may need?
