Animated Sepia Butterfly Wind Spinner
Marked by its romantically muted color scheme and gorgeous subject, Iron Stop's animated sepia butterfly wind spinner brings a dreamy, artful touch to your home or yard. The spinner's floral-shaped frame--awash in shades of peacock blue, emerald green, and lemon yellow--creates a strikingly variegated effect, while a bold sunburst pattern suggests a theatrical illusion of light and motion when suspended in the breeze.
Captivating 3D Imagery
As captivating as its outer frame is, the spinner's true star lies in its graceful centerpiece--a delicate butterfly suspended in flight. Of course you can enjoy the hand-painted original artwork in all its still-life glory--but for maximum inspiration, mount it outdoors where the wind brings the creature to magnificent life as it flutters among a spray of freshly bloomed tulips. Lazy clouds drifting across a sepia sky complete the serene vision, fashioning the perfect backdrop to the awakening of spring.
Swivel hook (included) allows it to twist and twirl in the breeze.
Dazzling Garden Decor -- for Indoors or Out
The decorative wind spinner adds a dramatic addition to flower and vegetable beds, manicured lawns, and wildflower refuges alike. It also offers a delightful way to greet guests on the front porch, to bring extra sparkle near a swimming pool, or to add a splash of color out on the patio--no matter the season. The wind spinner works well indoors too, bringing a charming touch of the outdoors to kitchens, living rooms, and reading nooks, or even a child's bedroom--the mesmerizing effect will spark interest and keep their attention. Sun-drenched during the day or twinkling in the moonlight, the wind spinner makes any space more magical.
Placing the Wind Spinner
Whether you choose to use it indoors or out, you'll want to place your wind spinner ornament someplace easily visible--a shepherd's staff in a garden, a hook on a trellis or the eaves of your porch, or near an inside window to best showcase its intricate cutouts and light-refractive finish.
Hanging the Wind Spinner
The wind spinner comes ready to hang from the box; simply fan it open and adjust the individual rings as needed for optimal wind movement. The included swivel hook allows it to twist and twirl in the breeze and ensures easy installation. You can use the swivel hook attachment alone or connected to an extension chain or an Iron Stop hook accessory to achieve just the right placement (additional accessories sold separately). Opening your wind spinner fully allows it to spin in the wind.
3 Easy Steps to Set Up Your Wind Spinner
1. Remove wind spinner from the box. Hold the wind spinner in both hands with your right hand at the top near the hook and left hand at the bottom. view larger
2. Position your thumbs on the innermost ring just to the left of the center spine and push away from you. The wind spinner should fan open by itself. view larger
3. Continue until there is about half an inch between each ring as pictured. Adjust individual rings as needed. view larger

Weather-Resistant Powder-Coated Steel
Though delicate in appearance, the wind spinner is made of laser-cut 20-gauge steel for superior durability. Even more, it's painted with UV-protected ink and finished with a high-gloss, rust-resistant powder coating, which helps keep the spinner safe from the elements season after season, year after year.
Accessorizing with Wind Chimes and More
Add even more enjoyment to your wind spinner by attaching some creative accessories from Iron Stop's handsome indoor/outdoor collections. A spiral tail or wind chime (both sold separately) adds extra flair to your spinner. Iron Stop also offers battery- and solar-powered motors that create a continuous spinning action--perfect for use indoors or outside on a windless day.
Thanks to top and bottom hanging holes, the wind spinner can be hung from additional animated wind spinners to create a customized display. Each animated wind spinner offers an utterly unique animation--everything from galloping horses, swimming dolphins, soaring eagles, and busy woodpeckers to dragonflies flying over lily pads, cardinals fluttering amongst cherry blossoms, and beautiful butterflies flapping their intricate wings over tulips and sun flowers. Show off your love of horseback riding, your patriotic spirit, your love of nature--the collection offers something for everyone.

Wind Spinner FAQs:
Where is your wind spinner made?
All of Iron Stop's wind spinners are proudly made in the USA.
Will my wind spinner fade if I leave it outside?
Iron Stop spinners utilize state-of-the-art FujiFilm ink that includes UV protection to maintain its brilliance longer.
Is this the same hummingbird wind spinner others offer?
No, this is a one-of-a-kind, exclusive copyrighted design available only from Iron Stop.
What if there isn't any wind? How will my wind spinner work?
You can purchase an Iron Stop battery- or solar-powered motor that automatically spins your wind spinner for you.
What type of metal is used to make the spinners?
The wind spinners are made of heavy, 20 gauge, cold rolled steel.
Does the gloss coating offer any special ingredients or protection?
The gloss coating on Iron Stop's wind spinners is an enamel powder coat. The powder is sprayed on and then the products are run through an oven that melts the powder into the gloss coat. It effectively seals the steel to make it rust resistant. The powder coat used also contains glitter to make the products sparkle even more in the light.
What is the process when beginning a new design?
Iron Stop's wind spinners are hand-sketched, copyrighted, one-of-a-kind designs. They start the old-fashioned way with a pencil and sketch the design on paper to get a rough idea of what they want designed and how the piece will look. Once they get the basic shape figured out they scan the sketch and redraw it on the computer using a special software. Once it is where they want it they send the file to their laser programmer to have a sample made. After they get the sample back and make any necessary adjustments they then proceed to designing the graphics.
What exactly is lenticular?
Lenticular images are digital files that have been specially prepared and then printed onto a lens material. This material is a special plastic made up of lenticules, hence the name lenticular printing. The image, viewed through the lenticules, appears to move as it is turned creating dramatic animation or depth.
What's the difference between lenticulars and holograms?
Holograms are usually monochromatic (one color) and need to be lit perfectly in order to be seen. Lenticular is a printing process; it does not need special lighting in order to look its best and does not scratch.
