An Old Weather Vane

I think that my hubby got this from a car boot sale and I wish I’d taken a photo of it before I painted it, but basically it was just plain black metal. Having never painted a weather vane before, I put it off until he really started nagging me to paint it!

Sometime I need a little nagging and once I got going with it I enjoyed painting it, mixing the colours on the vane itself. It’s painted on both sides in acrylic paint. First he sanded it down which then meant the paint would adhere more easily! I think we’re going to varnish it and hope that it remains reasonably permanent.
