This is a replica of the film prop, the Maltese Falcon. It is made with a generic clay. I assume it is like Sculpey or whatnot.





I gave it a coat of polyurethane after lightly smoothing and baking.

Cool replica of the movie prop; I like the almost-quilted look of the chest feathers.  I know it's supposed to be black, but I preferred your figure before it was painted, because that coloration struck me as metallic/pewter-like and reminded me of a car hood ornament.  And it's also difficult to truly appreciate all-black objects in photographs, because the detail on them seldom shows up well in my opinion.

I've never actually seen The Maltese Falcon, however, I do have some familiarity with it due to memories of an adult comic strip parody of the film that ran in a vintage issue of Playboy that I read in my youth--I'll spare you the sordid details!  Grin

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

So cool! Now I have to get the movie and watch it with the kids. It's funny how fascinated they are with old black and white films. Those are called "classic" for a reason I guess Cheesy.
