How about painting it.
You know, like "painting with numbers".
His suit is red, the holly berrys are red, white beard and eye-brows, etc.
I guess it would take a bit of time and patience, but would look pretty cool, I think.
And a green background, gotta be green.
The original Thomas Nast drawing was most certainly in black and white—if there’s any collectible value to the tin, leaving it as is would be best—however, @FLDRD is free to do whatever he chooses.

That Santa looked familiar to me. I thought it was the same Santa as on the Christmas Cheer lid, but I guess not

But it looks like an engraving of this old picture, which is everywhere. I have an old copy of The Night Before Christmas with it on the cover.

That's the Nast Santa. He was a German born American Cartoonist. He also did the famous Boss Tweed Political Cartoons.

I understand the thought of it, but it just wouldn't be right in my world.

I don't like painting brick houses either, seems similar to me.

No idea if there's collector value, but I might have futzed with that too much already if there was. It would be nice a little cleaner looking but not sure yet what method would be best. I don't mind the "rough texture" look but would like to decrease some of the blackening...
