I made a mini HP wand for my friend for christmas out of clay, and oh my god. I dont know how you guys can make these amazing looking intricate things! it took me shamefully long to make a crooked shaped stick. haha.

I put an R on it for her name, and coated my hands slightly in gold mineral eyeshadow then rolled the wand in my hands before baking so all the embossed points picked up more color than the rest. Im really proud with how it came out (and the fact that I didn't burn it in the oven since it says 15 minutes for every 1/4" thickness, but this isnt even and I was really worried!)







C&C welcome, thanks!

I love the wood texture and the sheen that your eyeshadow has given it.

I don't think I would ever have thought to use eyeshadow for the sheen, but I'll keep it in mind now. Great job on your first polymer clay project! This wand came out really, really well. Now I want to try to make some clay wands for my Potter-fan friends for their birthdays next year. Cheesy
