I made this knocker from the movie Labyrinth for spikefan during the last iyp.  

I used a wood block for the base and sculpted up from there with polymer clay. I used aluminum foil under the clay so it wouldnt be to heavy.  Then painted it a with reds and browns.  Glazed it with watered down black and then used bronze cream rub to give it a metallic shine.  I absolutely love how he turned out. Im planning to do the set me next. Grin  C&C welcome

The sculpting job you did is amazing but I think I love the paint job even more. It looks almost magical the way the colors swirl over the door knocker Smiley

Love it! And love the movie, too. Now you should make the "mouth" guy, and the little Brittish worm to sit on your porch? Neat theme. You did a fine job.

I squealed when I saw this.  My husband looked at me like I was nuts.  Now I'm going to torture my whole family with the movie.
