How to Make Gandalf's Staff - Part 5: Painting it


In this part of the tutorial we finish making the staff by painting it and sealing it.

Part 1 of this tutorial is here



Cover with Mod Podge

If you have mod podge you can go ahead and seal the head of the staff and the apoxied section. This will preserve it, strengthen it and keep the colors vibrant.

paint the staff white

Once the mod podge has dried you can go ahead and paint the whole staff white. Do more than one coat if you feel it needs it for a vibrant and bright white color.

Seal it

Once the paint has dried you can go ahead and seal the whole staff. This will preserve the colors and keep it looking good.


That's It! Your Staff is done!
