Tin Can Stars Update

It's 1 year and 4 months since I made the Tin Can Star hanging. It has been hanging outside our front door ever since. This is what it looked like new:



Now after a harsh desert summer it has faded and looks like this:



It never gets direct sunlight but obviously the glare of the sun off the white walls has done some damage. The aluminium doesn't rust but some of the metal beads and crimps does.

It's interesting to see how some colours are more fade resistant than others. The red has suffered the most. The greens and yellows are still fine...
