  • Mimicking the gold on the Twining's Tea tin

    I don't know too much about printing on tin and so far the printer has been stumped attempting to create a color/effect similar to the Twining's Tea tin gold. Obviously a digital photo is incapable of totally depicting what I'm looking for but I think this one at least shows the sparkle of the thing. And it's a pretty common product so maybe someone out there even has one in their possession. Any thoughts on how to get a similar look would be appreciated.

        Paint it with the same paint.

            Tins are usually lacquered, enameled, or powder coated. If they contain food, that adds a whole other layer to the process.
            That gold sparkle isn't necessarily a paint. It might be some kind of epoxy enamel finish or some other type of applied coating. Most flecks in gold paint are usually much much smaller than that to get through the spray nozzles.

              Right. When I said ''paint,'' I was using a ''broad brush'' as it were.
