Swirl Wand by Maylar Swirl Wand by Maylar
UPDT: Thanks so much for the DD on this one, I appreciate it!
-----------------------------------
UPDT: This wand is SOLD. If you wold like something similar, note me (I offer free shipping and some discounts for old customers).
-----------------------------------
After a while not being here, I truly believe a new magic wand is a good way to slowly return :)

Here it is, a OOAK magic wand inspired by mangrove roots, water, swirls and tentacles, all together. It is made of poplar wood, carved by hand and it measures 29.5 cm in length (11.6 inch). The small faux jade adorns its bottom and in a way indicates the way this wand should be held. Why? For an easier and more comfortable grip, I tried making a sort of dent on one side, so the thumb falls into it naturally. To tell you the truth, even I was surprised by how good this actually feels, lol.

Also, there's a very blurry and scrappy video of this on YT, here: [link]

Sorry for the quality, I haven't had my camera with me, so this is cell phone one.

All in all, hope you like it :)

The whole work is done in layers, then each swirl separately.

How long does it take to make something like this?

Maylar Featured By Owner May 6, 2013  Professional General Artist
I can't tell you exactly, as I never track time fully when I work, but somewhere around 60 hours.

60 hours huh? That is about how long my drawings take.

Worth the time though :-)
