Because I'm pushy I can answer that one...on these particular tins (the tiny ones) the rim is already black when you but it. On altoid tins, I will use a Staz-on Ink to darken mine.

The top edge is achieved by inking the edges of the paper. That's not an altoid tin, though, it's a smaller "Seattle's Best Coffee" tin, and the rim comes that way. Sorry, I don't have a trick for aging the rims.

EDIT: aroze pushily answered first, but she had a better answer than I did.  Cheesy

Staz-On ink is an awesome thing. Its like the Sharpie of ink pads.

Thanks for the tip! I've been using a pigment ink pad and it's a MESS! Never seems to dry.

I'm a bit stuck on whether or not to add one more element to my tin before I officially call it done. If anyone would be willing to take a look at a pic and provide their opinion I would REALLY appreciate it Smiley.

I hate pigment ink and very rarely use it because it seems to dry.

I could probably sacrifice a few minutes to help you out, if you like.  Wink
