Wizards Staff is Done

My son, Dmitry, finished making the wizard staff that I made by connecting two three foot dowels.  He covered it with strips of grocery bag and then painted the strips brown.  A darker brown paint was used to paint runes onto the staff.

His hand is partially covering a leather strip that he wound onto the staff.  The leather is from his sister's old purse.

The top of the staff has a metal hanger bent to look like, well, I guess something that is on the top of a wizard's staff.  The director of the play he will be in wants to replace the wire with some kind of globe.

I kind of like the staff the way it is.  Nice job Dima!

Here is a link to the play he will be using the staff in: Once Upon a Mattress.
