This is just one way to make your own wand using supplies you might have laying around the house.
Either way, if you had to go out and buy everything I used, it wouldn't be very expensive.
OK SO LET'S BEGIN! :D
NOTE: **The picture is the FIRST wand I made. I assumed that it would be a success and so I decided to make an instructable right from the beginning...the glue gun messed me up.** :D
Step 1: Supplies
Ok, here is what you'll need:
- Paint (varies, depending on your design)
- Big AND small paint brushes
- Some kind of clear coat (I used Sculpey gloss glaze, but you can try using clear nail polish)
- Glue gun
- a wand shaped stick (I have the back of an old, broken paintbrush)
NOTE: **I ended up using silver spray paint instead of the silver GLITTER paint I bought a while ago by mistake**
Step 2: Painting
Ok so first, paint the body of the wand. Simple enough. :)
I painted my wand black and made the handle green. (SLYTHERIN PRIDE)
Step 3: Glue Gun
Ok. So now, use your glue gun to make embellishments. You'll be painting those in another color, so be aware how thick or thin they are.
I have 2 glue guns, one is thinner than the other.
( HEY LOOK HARRY! )
Step 4: Paint Some More
This is where I used the spray paint. I just sprayed into the cap until I had enough and then I used the smallest brush I had to paint the embellishments.
NOTE: **If you're impatient like me, you can use a blow dryer to dry off the paint faster. As long as you put thin layers of paint, nothing bad will happen.**
Then just paint some glaze over the whole thing. I put 1 coat on mine, but I recommend at least 2.
YOU'RE DONE! :D
