Princess Luna Wand by xofox Princess Luna Wand by xofox
A sister wand to the Princess Celestia Wand, this piece was suggested by :iconpikawolf18:, so many thanks to her. I'm fairly satisfied with the shape and the relief carving on the handle, but quite disappointed with the way the stain set. I've had is set like this a few times in the past; I really wish I knew what was causing it. :| Plus, the leaf yellowed under the clear coat I put on top. Oh well; you take what you can get. :)
Want to see more of this piece? Check out an offsite work in progress gallery and a larger photo gallery at My Little Woodcraft.

Princess Luna and My Little Pony belong to Hasbro.

It may be the wood itself that is causing the problem - some woods are notorious for blotching when stain is applied to them, like birch. And the yellowing might be the finish you're using. (I know that the varnish I use makes my silver leaf yellow a bit, so I'm thinking of buying a can of waterbase polyurethane to see if that works better.)

I really love the spiral you did on the shaft, by the way!

I would love to see you make a discord wand. I really like wands too, i would love to try making one but i'm pretty sure i'd be rubbish at it. keep up the good work. Man, i love these wands, not just the pony ones either.

Bushwa!
Everyone is rubbish at everything until they try it. Why, did you know that as a baby I was unable to even walk properly? Now I can do it with almost no conscious effort and only fall over my own feet a few times a week? But a Discord wand could be fun; I shall have to try it when I get free time. :D
