Tin Men - Art - 200


Press a design into a sheet of tin.


1) Gather your supplies.

You'll need:

       A) A sheet of metal 

       B) Tools for manipulating the tin, such as a stylus or punch.

Note: Your metal sheet does not have to be tin. In fact, aluminum sheets are probably an better choice. A tin can will also work, but is rather dangerous. It's probably worth it to buy the sheets! 

2) Emboss, punch or etch into your sheet to create a fun print. 

This is a higher point objective, so don't rush it! Put some time in effort into making something you're proud to share.
