Wooden dowel rod, any length

Acrylic paint


Modeling clay


Paint the dowel rod the color of your choice and set aside to dry.

Use modeling clay, also in the color/colors of your choice, to make a 4" (10.2 cm) handle around the dowel rod.

If desired, varnish the wand so that the paint will not chip.
