This metal roadrunner is a great metal yard art decor piece. Each one is custom plasma cut in Arizona! These make great gifts, and are available in multiple sizes.
What are these metal roadrunners made from?
These adorable metal roadrunners are made from steel! These are custom plasma cut pieces that are designed and cut right here in Arizona.
Each roadrunner is unique and custom cut to order. These metal roadrunners can be pushed into the ground using metal stakes. If you’d rather, we can make a flat base for you. These are designed to be an outdoor piece, and can be finished in multiple ways.
The roadrunners are designed to spend time outdoors and will change over time as the natural rusting process takes over.
How is the metal rusted?
This item is available in four different finishes (please see pictures): black matte, bare metal, copper patina, and rusted metal. Each finish has pros and cons, and all except rusted metal will have to be sealed yearly to keep from rusting.
For rusted metal finish, we start the rusting process for you by finishing the metal and then treating it with a vinegar/peroxide/salt mixture. This is a superficial form of rust and the metal should be handled as little as possible until the organic rusting kicks in.
Organic rusting will happen as the item ages and is left to the weather elements. That means that over time your rusted metal quail will change the way they look slightly. The shape will stay the same of course but it will change looks as the rusting progresses.
Are there options for how this roadrunner can be displayed?
Metal roadrunners can be made with stakes or with a flat stand on the bottom to sit under rocks and anchor your little guy to the ground.
