Thought some people may find this helpful with halloween coming up so fast.
yeh dis don't look too hard, *fails* ohhh
This is so great!! Thanks!! I'm so glad I have found it!
So I used your idea to make Dumbledore's/the Elder Wand as well as Voldemort's wand as a present to my best friend. They turned out amazing if I do say so myself. I used mine at the midnight showing and people were flabbergasted that I had made it myself. So I have you to thank for that. I will put up some pictures soon. My camera is currently not working though.
Your welcome! I would LOVE to see your pictures when you get a chance. ^,^ Glad the tutorial helped you out!
I think I'll use this as a general guide to make myself a Dumbledore wand for the final midnight showing. I dress up every year but I just don't have his wand.
They are simple to make! A good friend of mine made a replica of Dumbledore's wand using this tutorial, it looks amazing. She scuffed it up a bit with sandpaper and applied a really dark woodstain to finish it all off (Bombay Mahogony i think) it had a sealer in it as well so she didnt have to put super shiny polyeurathane on top.
Awesome, I'll look for that when I go to get materials. Do you know how she did the bumps in the wand? I was thinking of clay or maybe styrofoam....
The bumps were just little mounds of the sculpey/polymer clay that she rolled on, then blended into the dowel. The 'holes' or divits she did with the rounded tip of a seam ripper (tip on the handle)
Thanks I'll see if I can do about the same. I hope it will turn out well and not be more expensive than actually buying the wand. I won't have time to make it until I go on break in 4 weeks though. Thanks for all the tips.
Wow. Very helpful and interesting. Thanks for sharing!
I have no idea why you havent gotten more comments on this, it's really helpful!
Thank you so much! Hopefully I'll get the time to redo the tutorial in the near future. The layout is bugging me a little bit.
Thanks! This gives me some great ideas for my own wand!
