The dimensional things is annoying! Maybe you can hammer it down? Oh Clay is a good idea
Nope you cant hammer them down LOL been there done that Yuck results..clay is great and stays on well..Fabric is one too that works well to hid it if using a patterned fabric Smiley it camos it..

What a fabulous tutorial Smiley
I'm in the process of altering some tins for myself.  Right now they have been primered and spray painted.  You've got perfect timing in posting this  Smiley

I got a question - do I need to use a sealer after all is said and done?  I'm not a big modge podge person as everything I've seen done with it feels a bit tacky - but maybe those projects the people went modge podge crazy?   If you do use a sealer which would you recommend?

If you're painting and not using paper, I don't know that you would need a sealer. If you want to use one, though, I would use a clear spray on version. As for the Mod Podge, I have found that the glossy version is often tacky, but I've never had problems with the matte finish.
