Pennsylvania "Dutch" (Deutsch) Hex Signs - Barn Signs - Folk Art Decor
Traditionally Hand Drawn and Hand Painted Hex Signs, empowered prayers and folk art by hexerei Starwalker

Dutch Hex Sign logo

All signs are individually hand cut, drawn and painted to order by the artist.
Please understand that you are commissioning a unique work of art,
not something mass-produced and sitting on a shelf, ready to ship at any instant!

These hex signs are designed for exterior display and are hand-drawn and hand-painted designs on hand cut 1/2 to 3/4" exterior plywood circles from 1' to 3' diameter. A small selection of signs can be made as 8" disks.

They are painted with flat exteior house paint and over coated with Minwax spar urethane protective finish for durability and UV protection.

A Note Feom The Artist: Sometimes things need to change.

This old hex sign painter will be 74 this year and, as often comes with time and age, I am slowing down I am not "retiring" from painting hex signs by commission but neither am I retiring from my position as chief shepherd and wrangler of ducks, chickens, guinea fowl and the occasional turkey -- not to mention sowing, hoeing, harvesting, putting by and of course eating the fruits and vegetables of my labor. Being a subsistence farmer is in my blood every bit as much as painting hex signs and I can not imagine life without dirt under my fingernails and paint on every article of clothing that I own.

But I do everything more slowly these days and since we still only get 24 hours in a day, something has to give.

All of my usual offerings still reside on this page, but the one-click order solution no longer remains. Instead you will find a link under each image to email me to discuss your needs. This will allow me to schedule work on your sign and avoid the stressful seasonal backups that happen every year.

Since I cut each plywood disk to order, these one on one email exchanges will also make it possible for you to easily request "off-sizes" beyond the usual 12, 24, 36 and if you are able to collect your sign personally, 48 inch disks.

This is a step in a different direction, in an increasingly "on demand" world, but is actually much more in keeping with the reality of the process of commissioning a one of a kind work of traditional Pennsylvania "Deutsch" folk art, with the added spiritual element of being an emposwered blessing, prayer or invocation.

Please reach out to me by email with any questions you may have. I look forward to working with as many of you as is possible this year.

When you see a sign that speaks to you, or if you would like a custom painted prayer or blessing, please email me.

I am no longer offering a "one-click ordering option". Please read the Note from the Artist for a full expolanation.

If you are interested in a unique design, please visit the custom work page for ideas! . I have also been commissioned to recreate a variety of old, weathered or damaged signs. For examples of some of this work, including the photos that I was working from, visit my Recreation page.
