Now back to my limb I’ve been fiddling around with. I took and sanded it down till it was nice and smooth. I then took some maple color wood stain, and wiped it down till I got the perfect color. Once the stain dried completely, I took some gold and black paint which I painted the tip gold with black stripes.
Once the paint was all dried, I then sealed it with polyurethane and let it dry. Then I took some leather, wrapped it around the end to give it a leather grip handle.
Leather Grip Handle
By now it was looking pretty good, well at least to me it was. LOL. My husband happened to call it the “Leather Grip Poter Wand”. Well, haven’t quite decided what to call it. I had thought about calling it something like the “Indian Leather Grip Hand Stick” but the name is still in limbo for now. :O) Not really sure what I will do with it, if I will do anything with it at all. Right now it seems to have taken up housing on top of the antique desk as a display item. Let me know what you think, and try not to be too hard on me since it is the first time I’ve attempted doing something like this. Just joking, let me have all your honest opinions no matter what you have to say. It’ll help out when I do other projects down the line. :O)
Have a wonderful day!!!!!!
