Tins to stash your wee things and treasures; vitamins, medicines, candy, pins, change, oh sh*t kit, jewelry, or make-up.
I like to think of these hinged metal boxes as smaller versions of my larger Art Boxes.
I repurpose old candy tins, almond tins and the like. Occasionally I’ll source slider top tins and such.
I prepare the tins by sanding off any logos, using polymer clay to cover any embossed logos, primer and paint each tin.
I curate artwork for each box; whether its from my own (rather ridiculous) collection of rubber stamps; modified for size, or ephemera that I’ve found.
I stamp or print on recycled paper. I ink everything in a way I find interesting. I decoupage these images onto decorative art papers then adhere the whole piece to the tin.
After the adhesives have dried, I seal the outside of the tin.
Each one is unique.
Custom requests and commissions are available.
Custom pieces usually take 7-10 days production time.
Please contact me for information and timelines.
Please do not use harsh cleaners on the tins as it may damage the finish.
