This is for my school project for children’s day, using recycled materials. The theme that year was fiction stories. So I decided on the theme, Harry Potter. For props, I decided on the Nimbus 2000 and Harry Potter’s wand.
Research and Inspiration
I was inspired by the story, Harry Potter. I walked along beaches and parks hoping to find suitable drift woods. However, I could not find suitably shaped ones. Thus, I used toilet rolls and discarded brooms.
Method and Reflection
I joined the toilet rolls and manipulated their shapes by snipping, adding layers and bending them into shapes. I increased the thickness of the shapes to reflect on the shape of the Nimbus 2000 and then paper mache over the entire shape. I took a while to dry, thus to hasten the process, I used a hair dryer.
Below are some of the sketches I made of the Nimbus 2000:
