Vienna Skull and Nuts society?

Art, Projects

This is a door knocker I made for the house in Vienna. I hadn’t sculpted anything in a while and thought it would be easier (and cheaper) than trying to find one like this in a store or online. I found most of the supplies at Michaels, with a few nuts and bolts coming from Home Depot.

I really think it came out great. I think if I did it again I might get the dimensions of the skull a little more exact, find a more decorative backing plaque and a better knocker than a U-bolt with washers and nuts epoxied onto it. But it has been working well for about a year now.

Projects, Stuff and Things

So over the weekend I finished the “Skull Door Knocker” that I’d been working on for a while. I guess I’m going to pass it off as a halloween project… then just keep it up for the rest of the year. I threw together a picture of it for my Laptop Background in between deploying the application at work today. I cant stop looking at it actually, it’s got this HDR quality about it. I really did very little to the picture, just adusted the curves a little. I had to photoshop together some pieces of the door though. I think it came out really well.
