oh hey y'all! sorry for not linking the shop!! My own etsy store doesn't link to it either, I gotta fix that! these (and other!) wands can be found at (drumroll...)http://hagstonecodswallop.etsy.com
I have used a shorter wand along with a black chopstick for hairsticks and it worked great! some handles are heavier than others, and I think for thicker or thinner hair we could totally make some that would work.
As for getting the clay to stick, we haven't really had much trouble with it, but I really appreciate all the tips! I've been poring over the other threads to learn new techniques and tricks since i'm kinda new to polymer clay altogether. you guys are awesome!
