Description :
Wingardium Leviosa! For a witch costume, all you need to complete your Halloween costume is a handmade accessory or witch wand. Taking inspiration from the Harry Potter series, here's how you can make Hermoine’s wand.
STEP 1
Mix the Resin base and Hardener available in the packet of Shilpkar to make a white dough. Mould the Shilpkar lengthwise.
STEP 2
Mould a few balls, flatten them and then pinch on both sides to make leaves.
STEP 3
Stick the Shilpkar around the stick in such a way that it coils around it. Use the leaves and coils as fillers and stick in the remaining places on the stick. Allow the Shilpkar to dry for a couple of hours.
STEP 4
Apply a base coat of Fevicryl Acrylic black on the witch wand. Allow this to dry for a couple of minutes.
STEP 5
Using a flat brush give dry brush strokes using Fevicryl Pearl Metallic Gold colour. Do not use water in this step.
STEP 6
The base coat of black and the usage of a metallic or pearl colour over the black base coat gives an antique finish to the witch wand.
STEP 7
Apply a coat of fabric glue over the witch wand as a protective layer and if you wish to keep this Halloween costume accessory for use at other events, you can apply a coat of varnish.
