While looking at the signature of Sir Richard Barons’ letter, I felt something not quite right. The signature didn’t look like the name at all.
But it looked like the name, the wand maker Chris Barnardo used for several years to present his creative projects on instructables.
After our extensive journey, our supplies were running low and in order to finish the presentation case we used to store and later show the egg, the luscious scarlet velvet lining of my favourite all-weather coat had to be cut up for to make the pillow covering. I made such a fuss over this calamity that the rest of the party nicknamed me Kaptin Scarlet, and name that has endured to this day.
Of the many projects he presented there, the mentioned one as well as those may be of interest to the dear reader:
- Make a real wand out of paper and glue gun glue which inspired the Kymera Wand
- a magic wand for lumos and revealing your secret charms
- Distress your Kymera Wand
- Make a gorgeous Dragon Egg
