Fantastic! Amazing what you can do with an Altoids tin, innit?

Great job! This is really beautiful!
I cover Altoids tins too, but they don't look as nice as this! I was not very happy when Altoids decided to emboss their lids! Now I pick up tins where ever I can.

I love the wood grain look! These technique is easier than other instructions I have to make faux woodgrain. I have a ton of altoids tins- I have a brand new Makin's Professional Clay (Pasta) Machine that hasn't been opened... hmmm, I think it's time to play in clay!!!
Thanks for the Tut!

To be fair, a bunch of the steps are just because I couldn't post multiple photos in one step, like the bottles of paint followed by what it should look like followed by applying it to the tin. And the last 5 are "completed" photos. But thanks.

I honestly have to say Kudos. You're the very first person to post a 40 step tutorial. Next time I get an Altoid box and a bunch of time, I'll try this out. Happy
