Like I said I love Blunt Weapon and Canes... this is kinda both isnt it? I love the Koopalings or Koopa Kids and that Brat Bowser Junio should be ripped apart by them and eaten alive! Especially Ludwig needs to step up to that Monster he once called a Father. I love Ludwig! hes my favourite Bowser Junior Skin in Smash Bros and when I first played him I realized... I could make that Magic Wand the Koopa Kids had! And so I made this one together with the Eightball Cane, thats what I needed the second Plastic Ball for. Wel lets get started!
I started out with making the Top of the Wand, the Base where the Magic Crystal sits in. For That I used one Half of the Ball, taped the Pringels Caps into it and wrapped some layers of cardboard around the rim. Then I covered the Cardboard with some more Tape and the inside with gray paint. The Next step was to covere it partially into some Paper Mache and pinpoint the exact Middle to attach the Wand itself.
Well that came along quite nicely! First I taped the wand itself to the Base and then I made the Hole for the Straw in the Milkshake Cap a little Bigger. Afterwards I shoved the Cap over the Wand until it connected to the Base and taped that securely to the Wand and the Base aswell.
After a lot of taping I covered it in paper Mache to make ot look even and secure it even further and started priming it in Gray Paint. Usually I use White Paintz but I learned that Metallic Silver or Gold doesnt pop as much on white. And I wanted it to be shiny so I used gray Primer and Silver Paint. But you dont see the Silver yet, thats gonna follow soon.
Yes there wa sa second Half to the Plastic ball and there was that LED right? Well that part was tough, I wanted the wand to light up! but finding a transparend Ball in any color wa snearly impossible for me and just pinting the ball Blue wouldnt let the light shine through. What to do? Well a good Friend of mine told me to try thos window Paints, that stuff sticks to Plastic and lets Light shine through it. Brilliant Idea! I actually worked. It glows in a very nice shade of Blue when the LED is on. But without the Light the Crystal almost looks Black.
But also with the light on some Bubles in the Paint make it look like a Sky with stars and swirles and stuff... it looks beautiful!
But now we bring everything together and voila or viola? Whatever... Its Ludwig Von Koopas Magic Wand. Time to shoot some Geometric Forms at my Enemies!
