Latest addition to my collection of HAND PAINTED cans.

The RESTORATION of this can says it all + the HAND PAINTED art work & pin-striping!

Very Costly but then again, something I wanted for my collection.

I just re-read my post & realized that my post indicates that:

1- I restore the "beat-up" CAN
2- I do the art work by hand + pin-striping

None of the above! I wish I was that talented! frown

So, to revise the post:

1- is done by a master craftsman "Richard".
2- Richard has his artist do the art work + pin-striping

On average, a can has cost me around $900 total.
Here is a rough breakdown:

$100 - beatup/faded can
$300 – Restoration of a can
$500 - Art work for both sides.

The price per can may sound very high but then again, my experience with Richard has been with
graphic intensive art work. I got the bug when I saw a SHELL can at Richard’s table at a local
show 10 years ago. The can was sold for $650 then. I will post the picture when I find it.
