Our rustic, raw vintage-inspired Military Emblem- Air Force sign is made from quality 14-gauge hot rolled mild steel. The unfinished piece will have a protective layer of mill scale (black oxide, magnetite) which makes the dark gray blue tint. While this provides some protection, the pieces will still rust and patina over time. If this patina is the look you desire, you may simply let the piece gain its natural patina. If you wish to seal in the look of the raw steel you can always coat the piece with a clear spray to preserve it at any stage of patina. Each piece will have different natural patina and no two pieces are exactly alike. We also offer the option to have your piece painted/finished in white, black, rusted or clear.
