Hmm, if you're trying to keep the soda can look how about scanning in the can design and then printing it onto a shrinky dink?  I made the Tatty Devine dino in regular shrinky dink and it came out well.  I have a pic here:

I'm a designer in AR and I see many cool things, and I just wanted to say this is the most imaginative uses for a soda can I have ever seen.  Good to see creativity at work!  Great Job!

Can I ask you how long this took you, what you used to cut the can and did you cut yourself at all in the process?  I think it is very inspiring.  I hope more people will take a cue from you and start using more recycled materials. IT ROCKS!

thanx for all the comments, it took me two or three hours to cut it. i used little scissors i bought for 50 cents at walmart. No I didn't cut myself a single time, even when i tried using an exacto knife.

Maybe back it with wire mesh, and then a layer of fabric, and lots of epoxy glue?

There's a product you can buy at the hardware store, that's called 'plastic dip' or something similar. It's a coating you dip metal in. A lot of jewelry artist use it to coat pliers so they don't mar metal/wire. I believe it comes in lots of different colors.
