Lydia and I are studying Inca history but took a quick unrelated break after lunch to make some of these wands. The internet is full of tutorials for these. We watched this one. They are so easy and so fun. You don't even need a tutorial. It's just hot glue on a chopstick. Then paint. Then paint again in gold (or Rub n Buff) and you are done! Very pleasing. We used glue gun embellishment in a similar way for our spooky bottles.
After that we had a prop-making tangent and watched a tutorial for making a Triwizard Cup and Maui's hook (from Moana) These were so fascinating! I love making props for the shows I work on. Usually that goes to the prop dept, which sadly, I not normally on because I am so busy sewing. These videos aren't really realistic for the normal crafter, but are still so fun to watch—like Marceline's Axe from Adventure Time.
