We created this lovely butterfly from reclaimed metal. The metal we used is from weathered steel. We hand draw the pattern on the metal with soapstone and cut it with a hand held plasma cutter. We then hand hammer and weld it into shape.
The metal is sealed with a water-based enamel. This piece can be placed inside or out. Each moth will have subtle variations. They are cut by hand and each piece of metal has slight color differences.
Care: Wipe clean with a damp cloth. If outdoors, you can maintain a shiny metal look [entirely optional] by applying a clear metal enamel, available in a spray can at your local hardware store.
