I absolutely love this tutorial and I cannot wait to try it. A tutorial with hundreds of steps and pieces loses my interest very quickly, but this is simple and elegant.
It's cheap to do with all kinds of outcomes to keep it interesting. The directions are clear and the photographs are great. The example wands you created are beautiful and a wonderful motivator.
This idea is very fresh and surprising to find here on Deviant Art. I'd love to see more work from you. I'm seriously just heading out to the Asian Market near here right now because I'm so excited to give this a try.
Keep up the awesome work and thank you for sharing this.
