ladies and gents, I present to ye my first wood-carving, ever.
definitely had to learn on the fly how to do this sort of thing.. only other carving I've done before is linoleum, and a tidbit of soapstone. but anyway...DETAIL!
this wand shall be a part of my George Weasley cosplay for Halloween -- no, it's not George's wand, not supposed to be either. it's my little friend, that's all, my first "weapon" (if you could call a wand that?) that I made meself. ^^
anyway, me fictional wand (aka, the one I was hoping to make this one similar to) be: 18 inches, oak wood, raven feather interior
this wand be: 15.5 inches, ??? wood (need to find out..
), with wood interior, and an oak finish. xD
well, close enough for me. ^^
oh! and please note that the flash of my camera gave it a weird coloration, especially near the middle, by the decoration... the actual stain/coloration of me wood be pretty consistent throughout, so it doesn't have those weird dark spots in actuality. XP
