Art Tins

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. Due to the nature of hand crafted items, there may be small differences in subsequent pieces after the original has sold.
