Doorplate 15

After creating doorplates for my brother and his girlfried, ourselves (my girlfriend and I), I got an email from someone who saw my site and wanted a doorplate too.
It had to be a fantasy doorplate, in the style of Wendy and Brian Froud, or Arthur Rackham. So I tried to follow the style of Froud, the creator of the characters from The Dark Crystal and Labyrinth.

The doorplate's made with a cardboard armature covered in tinfoil. Over this a first layer of Fimo, to make a smooth surface whereupon the rest of the work's done by rolls and bits of clay to make the tree, the lettering, and the little elf-like charcaters. The dragon's done in the same way I usually create dragons, only without an armature and in half. back
