Introduction: Lion Door Knocker

About: I'm an industrial design student that likes to build stuff in my free time

A perfectly functional lion door knocker made of styrofoam

Step 1:

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.
The diference with the corn starch oogoo is that this one is water proof and equally cheap.
This paste will make the knocker harder enough to make noise against the door

Step 3:

now for the knocker you can use any rope, i found one with a shape i liked

Step 4:

For the painting, first a layer of black paint, then a thin layer of bronze paint that don't fully covers the black paint.

Step 5:

Now join the knocker and the lion

Step 6:

And the lion door knocker is finished
