i have made a small hiking pot out of a can i have but it is painted on the outside, can i burn off the paint with a heat gun or a blowtorch and if i can burn it off will it come off cleanly? thanks!!! cm

yes you can burn off the paint
no, it will not come off cleanly
best to sand the paint off
as for the inner coating, do what you're comfortable with
No it will not come off cleanly use a power sander. also you cant cook in tin cans they leach chemicals and most have a plastic inner coating
