I have four books on the topic of tin can art and metal art in general. At least two of them came to me from my daughter when she left tin behind in favor of stone, resin, silicone, and bondo. Since they are just gathering dust in my library, I thought maybe some of you would like to have them. So I'll be giving them away, one at a time, starting with this lovely volume called The Fine Art of the Tin Can by Bobby Hansson.
Although there is a section in the beginning of the book that covers some very basic techniques, this is really more of an inspirational book than a how-to. With a minimum number of tools and materials, you'll be amazed by the assemblages, sculptures, jewelry, and functional pieces the included artists have created from the humble tin can.
***Free Stuff Alert!!!***
Would you like to win a free copy of Bobby Hansson's book? Just leave me a comment below and you'll automatically be entered. If you tweet or post on Facebook or other social spots about the contest, you can leave a second comment and be entered twice! Deadline: July 19, 2010
