Jacob Marley Door Knocker, A Christmas Carol
This cold-cast brass replica depicts Jacob Marley's ghost as seen in the door knocker by Scrooge in Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol. It is loosely based on the door knocker seen in Disney's 2009 animated version of the holiday classic.
Meant more as a display piece rather than a functioning door knocker, this solid resin piece was originally hand-sculpted in Monster Clay, then it was molded in silicone and cold cast using brass powder and Smooth-Cast 325 clear resin. To give it the appearance of age, the cast was weathered with a patina solution and water-soluble oil paints.
