With can paint no longer being much of a thing, I figured I'd step outside the normal and add a little "extra" to one of the really nice RJR C cans.  This one was difficult because securing the can seams meant painting first...and then epoxying-in the magnets and can bearing (I don't like it when paint gets on the magnets).  Not much of the epoxy didn't go where I didn't want it to :), so the rest of the build/wind can proceed as usual, but I think it's a nifty look.

...and another variation on a theme (*otherwise known as rattle-can improvisations)  ;)

Very nice John.  :good: 

I used to use black wrinkle paint on the can.
Requires two coats and heat in the oven for 30 minutes, but the effect is pretty neat. 

These days I try to maintain replicas of what went before...  ^_^
