PROCEDURE:

STEP 1: Take a pencil/chopstick/twig. Shape it according to your wish with a cutter.

STEP 2:Once  you obtain desired shape , take a small bowl of water and white adhesive/white PVA glue in the ratio 4:1 (you can add more glue this will speed up drying)

STEP 3:Take a piece of newspaper dip it in the mixture and stick it around the pencil. Make at least 3 layers and depending on the wand pattern you have chosen add more layers to the base of the pencil to give it the desired shape.

STEP 4:Form another layer using the same method but instead of newspaper use tissue paper.(let this layer be as messy as possible as it gives you the wooden texture.)

STEP 5: Wait for it to completely dry.

STEP 6:You can decorate the wand by adding a  bead/marble to the base with super glue. Or to make Hermione’s wand use clay/m seal (or any material which can be molded and dries fast) to make the floral pattern . I didn’t mix the 2 m-seal doughs here and used the lighter color one as it is easier to mold.  Stick the m-seal pattern with glue to the pencil.

STEP 8:After the pencil has dried paint the wand with white PVA glue this will give it a polished finish.
