My only problem with the can mugs, is that the hot liquids would be twice as hot. Caution in the burn the mouth zone.

What kind of paint did you use. I want to make these really bad. Is there a particular kind of food safe paint that you used??

Most cans are also lined with BPA. Something to think about.

These would make adorable silverware/plastic ware utensil holders while on a picnic or camping. However I would be hesitant about using them to drink from, unless using food grade paint.
