Here on the Hopi reservation there are plenty of cans and lids to be found in the desert that have been rusted to perfection! A small group of my students and I each painted a Hopi sun (Tawa) on a rusty lid. We used acrylic paint for the sun followed by a protective varnish. Some students chose to glue a magnet on the back, others wrapped the edge of the lid with thin ribbon.
