We use classic art and make metal works of art! This listing is for “Rosie The Riveter” — a famous symbol from WWII. Now, you can own our rendition of it made out of heavy-duty steel! Do you want your own custom art converted to metal? Just like Rosie, We Can Do It!
As shown this artwork is 20″ tall — but we can make a larger custom size if you like. We show it in black in a window, which really makes it come to life as light shows through it. We also show it on the wall in yellow which accents it nicely. We can paint it any color you like, or leave it raw steel – – just let us know.
This artwork looks great inside or out. Because it’s made from 1/8” thick structural steel plate, it is built to last and withstand the elements.
Leave it bare, paint it yourself, or have us paint it for you. Just let us know! This listing is for one metal version in the color of your choice (not the original poster!)
***Please note that steel in its natural state has blemishes in it. In our picture it is in its natural state. If you go with natural metal or a “Sealed” or “Clear” option, the blemishes will show. If you do not want to see them, just pick out a paint color or paint them yourself. 🙂 Also, note that the sealed option (which makes it a darker steel color) takes a full 24 hours to cure, so it adds one day to the ship time.
Does Thickness Matter? YES! But it can be confusing because a lot of ads say “heavy duty,” “thick,” or “very durable,” but those are just words. Some ads will tell you it is a particular gauge, but if you are like us, these approaches make us feel like a goat looking at a watch – – pretty confused! So, in this listing we use 1/8″ thick metal. Let’s put that in a list of thicknesses using common coins:
1/8″ = .125″ = 11 Gauge = Thicker than a Quarter and a Dime Stacked on Top of Each Other (2.4% Thicker). It is 250% thicker than 18 Gauge and 60% thicker than 14 Gauge.
5/64″ = .078″ = 14 Gauge = Barely Thicker than a Nickel (1.6% thicker).
1/20″ = .05″ = 18 Gauge = Almost as Thick as a Dime (it is 6% short)
