First is to made the shape, it´s not dificult if you split the parts

Step 2:

now cover it with a layer of my personal formula of oogoo. liquid silicone and talc, like the feet talc but this is pure with no odor, you can buy it at farmacies.

This paste will make the knocker harder enough to make noise against the door
