I took the paint can image and cloned the advertising out the background. I then took the pictures of my puppets and clipped and used quick mask to take selections out duplicating the dragon and reversing it. I then made a few layers of type, also using the type bending tool and the rectangle tool on various layers, then I flattened the label and shrunk it to various sizes. I applied the labels to the cans with distort>shear and tried to duplicate the various curves of the cans. I then had to clip out the one gallon paint can lids and handles on to a different layer so they could overlap the labels. Finally I painted in the shadows.
