Address Number - 1 Metal House Number - 4 1/2" Metal Address Sign from Haitian Recycled Steel Drum - Handcrafted Metal Wall Art

Address number is handcrafted from a flattened, recycled steel drum at our workshop in Haiti. This is for 1 number. Please see our listings for more than 1 address number. When you place your order, please specify what number you are needing.

Hand painted metal address numbers are found at my other Etsy shop, TropicAccents. To view those numbers, click on this link….. https://www.etsy.com/shop/TropicAccents?section_id=10483407

We make these house numbers at our workshop in Port au Prince, Haiti. Both ends of the steel drum are removed and placed inside of the remaining cylinder along with scrap paper, dried banana or sugar cane leaves. It is set on fire, to burn off any paint or residue. When cooled, the drum is cut down the side and flattened out to create a "metal canvas" of approximately 3' x 6', upon which the design is drawn. Using hammer, chisel and various primitive tools, the shape is cut and the various decorative patterns are pounded into the metal, creating a unique and treasured piece of primitive art. The finished design is coated with a protective finish. Can be hung indoors or outdoors.

There are 2 holes in each of the numbers to hang with a screw or nail. ( not included ) They could also be hung using a liquid nails type product found at Home Depot or Lowes.

You can view a few photos of the process of making these pieces of metal art.
