9/16" fimo cutter
fimo or skulpy the color of the paint
self adhesive mirror roll (you may use a disposable pie pan or other tin or metal product, and suitable glue, if you don't have the mirror roll)
label for your paint canINSTRUCTIONS
roll clay on setting "1
cut four 9/16" circles from the rolled clay
stack the circles in 2's
take your circle template and place the 15/32" hole on top (centered) of the circle. press down lightly to give the impression of a can top.
Bake your circles.
Cut a piece from the mirror roll, 2 and1/8" by 13/16"
Gloss only the tops of your clay circles. Let dry.
Glue the mirror or metal to your fimo circles, line up top and bottom evenly. the middle of the can will be hollow.
Create a paint can label in your computer, or find one on-line, or scan and reduce a real one. This should be a bit shorter than your can, so that the metal shows a bit on the top and bottom.
If you need more pictures of clearer instructions give me a holler.
The picture shows my first attempt. I used chrome nail polish on these fimo discs, and decided I would like to use the colored discs instead. Our paint store now carries paint with colored tops.
