In honor of the season 7 premier of The Walking Dead, we created a hair stick form of Negans' weapon of choice, Lucille, the barbed wire wrapped bat. A photo has been submitted to the AMC Fan Art Page, it can take up to 20 days to be approved.
Since we do not have a lathe, the bat portion was shaped by sanding out of quilted crepe myrtle wood.
Miniature barbed wire was created by hand from jewelry wire, twisting and making the barbs along the way. The wire unfortunately was "non-tarnish", however, I did manage to get a little bit of a tarnish using egg whites. Not as much as I had hoped though.
Never the less it was fun to make and now I have my own miniature form of Lucille.
