Huge Gecko Hand Painted Metal 34" Wall Hanging - Cut from recycled steel drums - 401-GR-34

Darling gecko wall decor. Great patio - garden art. Hand painted on hand cut recycled steel drum metal in Haiti. Measures 23" x 34".

 Hand painted metal gecko wall hanging was hand cut from a 55 gallon recycled steel drum, in Haiti, using a hammer and chisel. The various details of the gecko were pounded out into a bas-relief, so that the details are more visible. A rust preventative solution is applied to the steel. The gecko is then hand painted in rich colors. It is finished with clear varnish. Similar to the painting of the Mexican talavera pottery pieces. A wonderful garden art design.

Photos of the process are shown. We start with a large, recycled steel drum. Burn off the paint and residue, Flatten the drum. Draw the pattern and cut it with hammer and chisel. It is then hand painted and finished with a protective clear finish.
