Then, how do you paint an empty tin can?
- Soak the tin can in warm water to remove the label and glue.
- Spray paint the outside surface of the can with a white or neutral colored paint.
- Base coat the outside surface of the can using an acrylic paint color of your choice.
- Arrange small stencils on the can and tape to hold.
Beside above, can you use acrylic paint on metal? You will be using acrylic paint (which works best on metal), so you want to choose an oil-based primer that is compatible with acrylic paint. Primer prepares your surface so that the paint will adhere well, but it also helps to smooth out any color and texture that you weren't able to remove from it.

How do you punch a hole in a can?
Position a sharp, narrow nail above each mark on your pattern and gently tap it 3-4 times with the hammer until just the point has punched the tin can. Repeat for each mark until you have completed your pattern. Gently tap the nail to punch a hole in the can - careful not to hit your fingers!
