Project Glukkon: Cigar

A woman is only a woman, but a good cigar is a smoke.
Rudyard Kipling
 What Glukkon would be complete without his smoke? I found directions for making a stage-prop cigar and followed them for the most part. After slitting a cardboard tube and rolling it to the right size and taping it, I covered it with a few layers of PM for strength. This was wrapped in the brown paper, stained, glossed and the ends sealed with hot glue. Adding a custom cigar band and steel wool for ash finished the job.

Construction: cardboard tube, paper mache, masking tape, stain, hot glue, white glue, gloss polyurethane, gold foil from a candy wrapper, brown crepe paper and  steel wool (for the ash).
