    Easily Pour Paint from Small Cans

    No, Alan. The cap would be the same cap as for the upper part of the plastic bottle. The plastic bottle top portion would be cut just like as for yours. The problem, as I see it, would be to keep the fizz sealed in the unit. Any ideas on how the top portion could be sealed to the pop can. The pop can could either aluminum or steel.

    Why not use this topper for pop cans where you drink a portion and save the rest for later. The seal would have to be tight to save the fizz.
