I'm very new to blender and don't even know how to ask for what I'm trying to achieve so this will very likely be a duplicate. If someone can point me to another post or get me going in the right direction I'd appreciate it!
I'm trying to recreate a broom from Harry Potter, the firebolt specifically, and got as far as the general shape. My question now is how would I go about making the white growth on the handle?
It looks like the sculpting tools would be the best bet, but before I dig into that I was wondering if there was a better route.
