I got a Crescent Moon wand (2011 italian version) on ebay this month, "MIB" (looked it), but there are numerous defects with it. There are multiple chips/cracks (it seems) on certain parts of the wand (none that bother me enough to want to send it back and lose money paying to ship it back to the seller). What DOES irritate me is the paint on it is not the best. Kind of smudgy? I am pretty sure it is a legit wand, just poorly made. Is there some way I can fix some of the paint without completely taking it all off, or do I have to take it all off and paint it myself? The base of the wand and the middle decoration where it lights up does not have these issues, just the crescent moon of it.

How do I go about this?

I'm not all familiar with the merch, but if it's the shiny golden crescent, I've seen people painting them with gold spray paint

Pretty much this. Uhm, go to http://sakkysa.deviantart.com and send her a note about this. She's fixed up a few toys and did a beautiful job. A few I can think of right off the bat-

*Sun damaged pink base of the Holy chalice
*Complete redo of the red and gold face of the Cosmic heart brooch.

For the compact, she used a matte paint. The examples SHOULD be on her dA. She's super sweet, also.

Oh, well I don't know about all of that. I am a neutral moonie. I don't do cliques.

No more of that talk. We don't gossip about other groups. :tongue:

I understand. I don't know why and I really am glad I don't know. I like to believe that as most of us are over 20, we can leave the 6th grade feuding behind. However, that's simply not the case. It's unfortunate, really.

That's enough of this topic. :)
