I made these from chewing tobacco cans that the paan wala (beetle leaf vendor) throws away! I bring them home instead.
Dimensions of can: 3inch Diameter x 4 inch height
1.Sanding the can and cap by hand to remove the paint
2.Putting up a layer of red oxide (primer) and drying overnight.
3.Applying a base coat of green (acrylic paints used for fabric) and drying for 4 hours
4.Painting with black yellow, red, white and green (acrylic paints used for fabric)
Have left a thin layer at the top unpainted! The paint makes it impossible for the can to be recapped, or the paint gets chipped by the cap.
Hope You like it.
