    Very clever idea! Thanks for sharing your hard work! Have a splendorous day!

    I don't see any problem yet , but if you want , you can turn-off the pump when you don't need it (e.g. nights) , then the air will exit from the can , the play-dough have many small holes that they can exit the air .
    Also it's a better suggestion : You can make a hole on top of the can (With machine , not hammer !)


    If you make it total waterproof , you don't need to add water occasionally , In first time my can lose a few water , then I understand I should make it more waterproof . Also after a long time the water will evaporate , then you should add a few water .
