Need a weathervane ornament.

I'd like a silouette of a boy urinating so my weathervane would be of someone pissing into the wind.

how much do you want to pay? what material and final weight do you want it? is it just the sil. of the boy, or do you need the whole rotating and mounting apparatus?

details.

A true genius would design a water catch cup and drip tube so that in the rain there would be actual pee pee coming out the boy's pronger and spraying back on his legs

But who is actually going to stand out in the rain to watch it work?

Just do it yourself . Buy some copper or alum stock and some tin snips. Make some patterns out of posterboard until you get a shape you are happy with and then transfer it to the metal and cut it out. Cut out 2 exact duplicates and screw them together one on each side of your center spindle to make the weathervane stiffer.

Here is a deviled egg serving plate I did out of what was originally a flat alum baking pan. I used a spoon and my fingers and thumb to form the metal. Trial and error is how you learn new skills.

I bet I could do it. I run a CNC plasma cutter at work. Here's some stuff I've done. I've got more pictures, but they're on my computer at work.
