    That's How I knew the tobacco tins, not from being there. But from being shown work done inside.

    You could always use fly tying feathers and then clear coat it.

    Isn't it nice when someone says "that's a great piece of kit, where did you buy that", then you can modestly reply "you can't buy it, I made it myself". The moral is, it's amazing what you can achieve if you put your mind to it.

    hello,
    Bump.. I'm thinking about creating a design or a name on my Hudson Bay tin. A fellow Bushcrafter has similar & has suggested maybe creating a Hudson Bay logo or some pattern from that era & adding a fictional date for authenticity. The Hudson Bay tins I have seen have some awesome designs engraved.
    Regards
    David

    Hi David, really like the engraving idea...
    I thought of this technique when reading your post...

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scratchboard

    ...a bit like the scraperfoil stuff, you know what I mean?!

    The paint to cover it first can be acrylic or any metal paint ( ie: car scratch repair &#128521
    About three coats of it and a sealer as described here:
    http://dellaandcompany.com/painting-old-new-tin.php



    I suppose you could cover the lid in 3coats of black acrylic paint and then stencil in a design of your choice followed by "scratching" out the stenciled design...
    Finishing off with the sealer to protect it...

    Or even just silhouette engravings (Google Fu &#128521 of lettering or design...








    Just an idea... hope it inspires.

    hello,
    Intricate detail. I know someone with a computerised engraving machine who could possibly create such a design. Keeping it simple maybe just a logo, date & name.
    Regards
    David
