Paint Dipped Soup Cans


We needed to get our garden herbs inside for the winter and soup cans were on hand. I love all the paint dipped projects I've seen around the web, so I wanted to try the technique on soup cans and use them to store the plants for the winter.
Painting only part of the soup can really makes the industrial lines of the tin can pop.

    These look really nice. It really works with the metal shining through. I also like the colors you dipped and the spatter details add interest. I just read a question on this site, what to do with soup cans? I hope they see your post.
