Brain Can Resin Sculpture by Ryan Taft

Brain Can was designed based on the shape of real can of spray paint. The original was hand sculpted by Ryan Taft in the USA, and the final product includes a sculpted valve that allows you to put your favorite cap on your Brain Can. When primed, Brain Can will accept acrylic, ink, spray paint, and more. When you are finished painting your Brain Can, you can put it on your desk or give it as a gift. Or, give that creative someone in your life a blank to paint on their own.

Brain can is 5" tall and about 2" in diameter.
