Leaping Stag Weathervane



Farmer Joe spent a pretty sizeable chunk of 1880 change on this shiny deer weathervane, and some years later he looks up at the barn and it’s all green and dull. The gilt has worn away and the other farmers are making fun of him so he says you know what, I’m going to make it all bright and shiny like the day I bought it! He gets his weathervane down and lays a shiny yellow paint down over that verdigris surface and TA-DA good as new! A hundred and some years later, the result is a beautifully weathered yellow surface with that verdigris peeking out in spots.
