Cut, dried, carved, sanded, burned, sanded a bit again, and finished off with a coating of clear mineral oil to protect the wood. Please note this wand was originally painted with a grey acrylic paint which has since been sanded off – however, bits of it can still be seen in a few places, such as on the ends.
Colour variations are due to the wood itself.
