Set of 4 handmade Barn Gift Tags.

Based on mixed media paintings of New England barns created by the artist, on these handmade treasures. Paintings were based on real barns and barn photos. Barns dot the landscape of America and have always been an indicator of industrial success across the land.

Many years ago, choices for paints, sealers and other building materials did not exist. Farmers had to be resourceful in finding or making a paint that would protect and seal the wood on their barns. Hundreds of years ago, many farmers would seal their barns with linseed oil, which is an orange-colored oil derived from the seeds of the flax plant. To this oil, they would add a variety of things, most often milk and lime, but also ferrous oxide, or rust. Rust was plentiful on farms and because it killed fungi and mosses that might grow on barns, and it was very effective as a sealant. It turned the mixture red in color.
