A. Are you looking for empty paint cans w/lids?

Sorry if I don't understand the request.

If you haven't found the tin plated steel yet, you might try the folks who make the reproductions of the old embossed tin panels for interior decorating. I was working for a stamping company who had the job of embossing sheets sized about 2 feet square. They were precut, so maybe someone can offer them to you, too.

Best regards, Tom

A. I found a supplier called "Village Metals" in Rochester NY. They supply .010 gauge tin-plate steel. Comes 33 inches wide and you can order just the quantity you need. Hope this of use.
