Begin by wiping the exterior of the cans using a lint-free cloth and Clean Slate.
Next, fill with water and freeze overnight. (note: if you don’t want to have to hammer the bottom then fill 1 inch at a time allowing it to freeze completely as you go)
While you wait, draw or print off your design. Then use your marker to make dots along the edges giving you a guide to follow when hammering.
Next, once the water is completely frozen, wrap the tin in with your guide and tape it to hold in place.
Begin making holes using a hammer and nail, careful not to hit your fingers. You may want to do this step outside on top of a towel to prevent dinting the can.
Once done and the can is all dry, firmly grasp the can and hammer the bottom back in if it has popped out from freezing. (Skip this step if you slowly froze the water to avoid this)
Next use your Wedge Specialty Brush and One Step Paint to paint the exterior of the can. Use nice long strokes and always paint into a wet edge. Don’t worry about clogging holes, you can go back later and poke through them using your nail.
Careful when placing tea light candles in as the interior of the can may have sharp edges.
