Buying Metal Funnels for Making a Tin Man

Where can I buy tin funnels to make a tin man? I live in the Vancouver area in BC. All I can find here are plastic ones. Thanks!

If you still cannot find a metal funnel, maybe you can use metallic spray paint. I don't know how you'd need to treat the plastic, but I suspect there is a way to do it.

Cute project, by the way!

I would look on Ebay, I have found all kinds of vintage kitchen stuff on there.

I would just buy the plastic ones and spray paint them silver. :)

Have you tried a store like Princess Auto or Peavey Mart, a place that sells farm/agricultural supplies?

If you can't find a metal one, what about spray painting it with silver spray paint? I was thinking if all else fails and you can't locate one, it might be something to think about? If you have the supplies maybe you could spray paint one and see what it looks like?! Hope this helps. :)

I found mine a Home Depot in the department where you will find items to fill gasoline mowers, to pour in ?? that has a small hole to get the gasoline or transmission oil into.
