Here's what I do.  First sand the tin with sand paper.  Sand in both directions (think tic tac toe board).  Then use Mod Poge to collage papers on and you can use hotglue for anything lumpy.  You can paint with acrylics around any areas that are still uncovered.  You can also use spray paints.  Mod Poge over the top of everything to seal it.

Or try Liquitex Matte Medium...I prefer it over Modge Podge. Its a bit more expensive, but it doesn't dry with a tacky finish like MP tends to.
