Hello !

I'm planning on offering custom handcrafted blank adafruit altoids sized tins turned into Fallout Mentats post nuclear war tins.

Specifications :
- original blank tins from Adafruit, those are exact same size and shape as the Altoids so the MintyPi will fit perfectly
- handcrafted
- real rust
- dirt made with bitumen
- yellow-orangish paint and silver metallic paint
- clear coated to prevent scratches and the rust from falling
- custom decal

The clear coat is applied after rust to fix the rust, then another layer is added after the whole customisation to protect the decal, the paint, the tin, and the rust !

If you are interested, please answer the poll :D

Thank you

You mean a new mentats tin, a virgin one ?
That would be harder to do actually because it would need to be painted with cans for a perfectly flat surface:D
