Workshop

I’ll admit I watched every one of these nine videos, and the one above more than once: Tinplate Girl shows you how to process cans into raw material for tinplate projects. In other videos she covers tools, soldering, bending, and many other techniques for making things out of this fun and easily-accessible material. Food and solvent cans are made from tin-plated steel and often feature silkscreened artwork for adding color to your projects. I have to say: Tinplate Girl reminds me a little of Tina Fey.

This father-daughter tutorial-making team also releases detailed patterns (many for sale, but the videos are free!) for their tinplate projects.
