Just a question...how did you finish the outside of the Altoid tin? Did you have to use some kind of primer before the textured paint? And/ Or was the texture separate?

I am so in love with this. It's probably the most creative thing I've seen someone do with an altoid tin.

Oopsy!!  This one slipped past me...sorry for the late reply.  The outside was spray painted & I think I just applied glitter to the wet paint (its been awhile, I'll have to look in my craft files).  I did seal it when it was all said & done, just a clear craft acrylic spray... a few coats.

Where the lid meets the tin... I sanded nice & pretty & seal, but I didn't paint the overlap, I could figure out how to keep the paint from chipping, as the lids on those tins close really tight.

Thank you! Did you use special metal paint? What about sanding the original tin?
Sorry to be such a bother!

You aren't a bother AT ALL  Smiley

I thought I used metal paint, but I had done 4 tins for that swap, so I was confusing them...looking back on them.  http://www.columbusgamers.com/sweetness/altoidtins.htm I just found the cans of paint...and I used what I had "on hand" (crafting is costly, you know! lol)  Actually, I used paint for plastic, lol... Krylon Fusion spray paint for plastic in "Blonde Shimmer"  (dries in 15 minutes or less, no sanding or priming)  I didn't sand the tin at all, accept for where the top overlaps the bottom when it closes.

The sealer I used is also a spray... Plaid's Clear Acrylic Sealer (Matte).

I think I used 2 coats of the colored spray, then mushed lots of chunky clear glitter into it to give it a funky texture.  Once that dried, then I put the fishie on it, then sprayed it with 2 coats of the sealer.
