I can't wait to read how you did the others! Those are amazing though!
All I can do is knit and crochet and so I look for those patterns but yours are just awesome crafts.
That's so funny, because I wish I could knit and crochet! And sew more than hems!
Here is a tutorial for the wand. It's very simple:
2) Deatheaters Wand prop
I bought a dowl rod at Michels crafts and cut it down to the length I needed.
Now the tiring part- whittle the rod down to look like a wand. I did mine sort of rough looking, but you can sand it later to make it smooth if you want. Of if you do woodworking, just do it on a machine, it'll be much easier! (my poor aching forarms)
Go to this site and mold your wand handle from white sculpey to look like the one on display. http://ww.rebelscum.com/gallery/sdcc-hp-props/default.asp
I drilled a small hole in the top of the wand and inserted a piece of thick wire. Then attached the sculpey wand handle.
Take the sculpted handle off and bake it. You will glue it back on the handle later.
I stained the wand shaft, then coated it with polyeurethane gloss to make it shiney.
I also stained the baked wand handle to make it look older (remove stain quickly for this process).
Glue the handle back onto the wire coming out of the top of the staff and you're done!
Note: I thought this was the hardest of all the props.
Paper machet, thick wire, artificial greenery, 6" styrofoam ball, 4" half styrofoam ball, stone color spray paint, aluminum foil.
Attach 4" half ball (head) to the 6" ball (body) with wire.
Make hands and legs with wire. Insert 3 wires to come out of the top of the head like stalks.
Cover arms, legs and head stalks with aluminum foil and shape them.
Now cover the entire thing with paper machet, leaving lillte holes in the ends of arms, legs and stalks (this is where the greenery is inserted). You can be as messy as you want. The mandrakes are supposed to look like roots and mud, so don't hold back. The more crevaces and lumps the better. You will want to get a little more detailed with the face, but don't worry if it's not perfect.
Wait for the whole thing to dry per instructions on the bag.
Paint with the spray paint. I used the kind that is supposed to look like stone.
Mix up some burnt umber acrylic paint or any really dark brownish color and water it down a bit to sloppily paint on the mandrake and wipe off quickly. This will leave nice highlights in the cracks and crevises.
Insert misc. fake greenery into the top of the head stalks and the hands and feet. Done!
I hope these instructions are clear. If anything is confusing, please let me know.
