Paint Chip Coffee Can

Behold one of my first attempts at Mod Podge:

Paint chips on an old coffee can.

This was probably not the best project to learn how to Mod Podge.

First of all, paint chips are cardboard and do not like to curve.
Secondly, applying LOTS of them at different places around the can meant that I did not have enough fingers to hold them down.

The solution was to use rubber bands to hold them all firmly in place until the Mod Podge dried and hope that the rubber bands themselves don't stick to the can. It worked, but only just.

Not happy with the ribbon at the top of the can (it went transparent in patches), but I DO like that Disney now has a paint range and their paint chips are shaped like Mickey. Love. It.
