To throw another wrench in the works. Is it possible to test a variant of the brushed can with a polished finish? The brushed example looks matte in appearance as would be expected from a brushed metal.

Polished Foster's Can on 02/13/2013 16:29:37 MST Print View


Well....I think I pretty well established that shiny cans don't work as well as matte or painted cans, so it's probably counter-productive. Plus, polishing one of these cans could be a real b***h. But I'll take a whack at it, see how difficult the polishing is. If I can do it without too much time and exasperation, I'll add it to the repertoire.
