Default Altoid tins...What can I use to remove...

the date-stamped info on the side of an Altoid tin? Is their a product that will remove this so I can keep my tin gold? (the cinnamon tin)

Also, what are you guys doing (if anything) to hide the writing on the bottom?

TIA,
Merrie Burruss

I spray paint mine so the writing isn't a problem. I'm not a fan of gold, I prefer copper, so it hasn't been a problem. I tried nail polish remover and 91% rubbing alcohol, neither worked. I know the stuff they use on those is fairly strong, so it may take a lot to work that off.

I also paint over mine, so it's not an issue.

Well, I guess I goofed, then. I versamarked the top and put two layers of gold EP. It looks good, but now I don't think I can paint over it.

Oh well, I have others.

Thanks, guys,
Merrie

What kind of paint do you guys use? A special metal paint?

You can just glue ribbon around the edge to hide the writing. I also paint mine - with spray paint. So far I've done copper and black with speckles (the speckles came because I spray painted some other things other colors and got overspray but turns out the speckles look great!)

Default sand to distress them and then used stazon

Ie just taught a class and made a distressed look tin by sanding to give it a worn look and then rubbed green, black or mustard stazon over it not covering completely. Then stamped with stars. Looked great!

Made a 5 page mini book to go inside. Also they would be beautiful gift boxes for small items like jewelry
