Heavy duty 22 gauge handcrafted steel metal tin barn star, painted in your choice of solid or rustic paint coverage. Solid paint coverage is total coverage of the star from edge to edge which gives the star a very clean and crisp appearance. The rustic paint coverage is where there is a contrasting base coat and the paint color selection is hand painted where the brush strokes can be seen at the bends of the star which gives the star a rustic or distressed appearance. This small star is also available in the bi-color or nautical style by inputting your color choices in the editable field. Painted stars begin with an industrial coat of primer and are topped with a couple coats of severe weather exterior paint. Please note that the 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7 inch stars are 22 gauge steel and are not galvanized metal at this time but will soon be offered in galvanized. The back of those sized stars will arrive as bare steel and are susceptible to rusting. We recommend spraying a clear coat (readily available in a department store for about $1) on the back to keep them from rusting and running down the side of your building. This star is available with two hanging options: drilled hole or hang tag; or plain (no hanging mechanism).
