For Valentines day I made wands for everyone in my Harry Potter meetup group. I thought my pictures turned out better than they did. I apologize for how bad the pictures seem to be.
Pay no attention to my horribly abused scratched up table.

I've got plans to not only make more of these, but to try and make replicas of more of the movie wands. Though next time I promise to take better pics.

All were made with wooden craft dowels or sticks I picked up outside.
Details are molded from plain sculpey clay and or hotglue.
Baked, painted with acrylics and sealed with mod-podge.
Each of these are between 11 and 13 inches depending on the wand.

My version of The Elder Wand



My version of Voldemort's Wand



Organic stick, half sanded and sealed.



Sculpey vines, this one is fairly heavy on the end, but fits nicely in the palm.



Drizzled Hot Glue and then painted, I love how this one turned out.



Calla-Lily Handle. I made these in both white and orange.



Sculpted Leaves, these are placed mid-wand.



Dragon's Eye, and one in silver.



Slightly better pic of the eye.

Marvelous fun! I also like the one with drizzled hot glue (and I never would have guessed that's what it is). Way cool.

Amazing, I don't think I can choose which I like the most. I notice that there is more than the ones you showed, in the picture with the hot glue one there is one white.

I like Voldemort's wand, the hot glue wand and the lilly wand, but they are all amazing.

Voldemort's wand is amaaazing. And I love your vines and...oh, that one in the hot glue picture (which, SO CLEVER), the white wand, that is gorgeous - I love the ridges and look of it!

Do those little tags have their names & info on them? I can't quite make it out (it's late and my eyes are half-asleep,haha).

Beautiful work. Smiley

Love your wands! I like your take on most of them, but the one that really caught my attention was the calla lily one because I've never seen one done based on that.

Oh, and off-topic, but I love your sig: "Quantum Mechanics: The dreams stuff is made of."  Grin

*blush*
Way more comments than I expected Smiley
Thank you.

The tags just say Wind Light Moon Creations (wind light moon being the meanings of my names)

I really is so addictive yes. I'm thinking I might put some up on etsy. I'm always disappointed when I do see wands for sale and they are always too far out of my price range, especially the collectible replicas. Though I sometimes break down and buy one if I see a sale.

I wish I had better pictures, I think I missed taking pictures of every wand I made. And some of the ones that looked like they were in focus were in fact really blurry when I uploaded. I promise to take better pics next time I make some, which will be soon.

Also thank you for the comment about my sig. It goes nicely with my screen name (which is a Stargate SG-1 reference in case that wasn't obvious, I like to pretend people know about all my obsessions tho lol)
