Never done it, but my guess would be to buy a cheap cigar ($.75-$1.00) from the gas station and unroll the outer leaf. I would then try something like glue stick on the leaf and tightly roll it onto itself. Cut to desired length. This approach would be for realism and the kick of knowing its a real tobacco leaf. Might be easier to just roll pieces of sculpey into thin strands, but that does not sound like as much fun!

Get some masking tape, cut off a strip about an 1 1/2" long and maybe 1/4" wide. Roll that up and paint. Adjust width or length accordingly to suit.

My quick and dirty simple method is to just use a brown paper sandwich bag...cut it to the
desired length and roll it up using a needle sewing pin as your guide...then soak it in a white glue
like Elmers glue to seal it...Voila!

I used a toothpick. I painted most of it brown, then painted the ash part red overlaid with grey.

I stuck some cushion filling on the ash end to replicate smoke.

Great suggestion, ActionMan! It looks more authentic scale-wise. :thumb
