HOW TO MAKE A MAGIC WAND - make a real magic wand at home

Let's start the course "How to make a magic wand at home" by listing the necessary materials. You will need:

  • sushi sticks;
  • hot glue gun and spare rods for it;
  • acrylic paints and brushes of different sizes;
  • varnish, preferably in the form of an aerosol;
  • to choose from: beads, beads, pebbles, sticks, shells, feathers for decoration.

The basis for the magic wand will be a sushi stick, and we will give it a shape using hot melt glue. Mark where the handle will end - it should be about 1/3 the length. Although it is better to focus on the width of the young wizard's palm, so that he is comfortable.

Use a pistol to apply a pattern of glue to the stick. What it will be depends only on your imagination. You can make a copy of the magic wand of one of the characters in the film, or come up with your own design.

To give the stick an unusual shape, glue beads to the handle, sprinkle some sections with beads, wrap with thread, or use other small items.

Closer to the base, apply a thicker layer of glue - we will make the top from it. Continuously roll the stick in your hands to distribute the glue evenly.

You should get something like this. Give it a minute for the glue to cool down a little.

When the glue has stopped sticking to the hands, but has not yet hardened, it can be sculpted like plasticine.

And to make such a knob, for example.

We advise you to make several sticks at once. After fashioning them, leave to cool and dry completely. In the meantime, prepare the paints.

Use brown paint to make the stick look like the old wood. Give it different shades by mixing with other paints. However, interesting legends can be thought up for any sticks. Green - from forest dwellers, blue - from the depths of the sea, white - bone, and so on.

We start to paint. First, cover the entire surface of the stick with the main color. Glue elements can also be painted over.

Leave to dry.

Then we start decorating, painting on small details. Do not worry if the paint looks dull and color transitions are visible - after varnishing the stick will take on a completely different look.

Let the paint dry for a few hours. And then hide with varnish in the fresh air so that no one breathes in what is not needed.

Done!

If there are no sushi sticks, the base can be made from a branch of a suitable size. Another option is to make a long cone out of paper and give it hardness by filling it inside with the same hot melt glue. But it is better to protect such a stick from water and not to varnish too hard.

That's it, now you know how to make a real magic wand. Do not forget to print out the list of basic spells and attach it to your treasure.
