Heavy duty 22 gauge handcrafted galvanized metal tin barn star, painted two-toned on each wing. The 'nautical' star is a symbolic star associated with the sea services of the United States armed forces and with tattoo culture. It is usually rendered as a five-pointed star in dark and light shades counterchanged in a manner reminiscent of a compass rose. Our nautical barn stars are made for outdoor use (no rust will run down the side of your building!) but are perfect for indoor use as well. Painted stars begin with an industrial coat of primer and are topped with a couple coats of severe weather exterior paint. Requires quick and easy assembly; they arrive in 5 separate wings - simply lay the wings on top of each other and insert the provided screws into the holes and attach the nuts on the back. We pre-drill holes in the tips of the 96 inch stars for attachment onto a surface.
