A little about my current process


Here are some of the tins I am using in my work right now. I had a friend post on a list for me seeking used Altoid tins quite a while back. I have been trying to figure out how to best make use of them since my first effort seems to have been a bust. I have learned from my error and have diversified.


As you can see my net trawled in an interesting assortment of tins, and I am not complaining.


These are some of the boxes that I picked up in thrift stores or had already, not sure what I will do with these, but if it’s not fun, it won’t happen.

And since you have been so awesome to read down this far in my post I am going to share a sneak preview of some of my latest tin collage projects. You are some of the first to see these new pieces! Do let me know what you think in the comments below if you are so inclined. These are images of my paintings, collaged onto re-purposed tins, and these and many more will soon be available in my Etsy store: https://www.etsy.com/shop/MelanieSinclairArt?ref=si_shop, but I will post them here for you to see as well.
