Highland Cow Male Steel / Metal / Garden Wall Art
Beautiful, intricate design, cut by a state of the art laser in the UK using British made material, this is a sturdy well-made item from mild steel material and you will not be disappointed with the quality. Ideal for Gardens, Home Bars, Summer Houses, Mancaves or even in the home, having fixing holes it can be hung to any fence or wall. Most items are made to order, so please allow up to 14 days for despatch although we do always try to deliver before this time. All of our products are cut from a raw steel and have a silver appearance when delivered but are made intending to allow them to rust, and they will do so easily, but you can prevent this by applying a clear or coloured metal paint. We do recommend a coating even if keeping the item indoors as some discolouration can occur inside. After cutting we clean the items with a product similar to WD40 which protects them from rust during transit. Once the item is exposed to the atmosphere, or moisture, they will start to patina in a short period of time.
If you wish for the item to naturally rust, they will start to change within a few weeks and will last for many, many years. If you wish to protect the piece you can do this by applying any metal paint or spray from places like Screwfix, B&Q or Amazon. We have personally used Screwfix own brand paints and Plasti Kote from Amazon. Both worked well for us, and we would recommend periodically applying a top up each year or as and when needed.
We deliberately make them using mild steel as we have found over the years that half of our customers have wished for them to naturally rust and others wish to paint them different colours. As this is a personal choice, we are unable to offer as a painted item. Please be aware that the products may have some sharp edges due to the design and cutting process. They are always easily covered when a coating is applied, or when the item has rusted.
Sorry, but we can only post to UK mainland addresses currently.
