#11 The Baton

No pictures of this in progress because I made it in an afternoon. I wanted a "standard" style wand in the mix, so I grabbed a chain pull from a ceiling fan and bored out the center with a metal drill bit and used it as a connecting ferrule.

 

Fun fact: the handle and blade started life for my second attempt at a carved bone / antler piece. I twisted three snakes of Sculpy together into a nice spiral that was going to go where the ferrule is now, but after curing the piece turned out to be too unstable for me to drill the ends to put the handle and blade in place. I threw it out and started over, ending up with #8 The Jackalope instead.
