FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT ARE YOUR FLOWERS MADE OF?
The base petals are made from found wood, reclaimed wood or dense recycled plastic.
Flower centers are created by hand from salvaged metal, including metal cans, pie plates, platters, buckets, and more, in an effort to divert more junk from landfills and instead create something strong and beautiful from them. Because of this, no two flowers are ever alike.
CAN I HANG MY FLOWER ART OUTSIDE?
*Yes, I suggest they be hung in a protected area outside, but if you want to display your custom flower sculpture out on a garden gate or backyard fence, you can certainly do that!
*The metal for my flowers is sanded, primed and painted with exterior paints. Hand painted metal pieces are protected with two spray coats of exterior sealant for ultimate weather protection.
*Naked barn wood flower petals are protected with two coats of premium exterior wood sealant.
*Each flower is assembled in front and back with exterior screws and is ready to hang with a heavy-duty outdoor wire.
*I suggest bringing your flower indoors during any off-season to further its life. If you see your flower beginning to wear, you can wipe the metal with a damp cloth spray a light coat of sealant. I recommend Rustoleum Exterior Gloss sealant, available in any hardware store.
*Any naked wood can be protected with a coat of wood sealant.
I recommend Old Master's Spar Varnish,
which is available in a can or as a spray.
DO YOU MAKE CUSTOM FLOWERS?
Yes I do! Below are my Custom Flower Terms & Instructions:
*If you like one of my flowers but want to tweak the metal work colors or switch up a petal style, I can easily do that.
*If you want a more obscure custom color that I don't carry, you can pull a color card and send me the code. I charge $35.00 per color. I use the following paint brands:
*Valspar Duramax - available at Lowes
