GeoSnippits: How To Paint Geocaching Ammo Boxes

We have so many ideas for doing different types of HowTo tutorials for GeoSnippits we can hardly contain ourselves. Today is an absolutely glorious day outside and the first thing I though of was "Lets make a video on painting Ammo Boxes!", yeah I am a little strange that way but I have been asked by so many to do this particular GeoSnippits I just had to. Besides it was finally back in the upper 60s and the paint would dry the way it was supposed to.

Here is the end result and we hope it provides information to you and inspires the makings of your own geocache.

What you will need to paint your own Ammo Box Geocache:
  • At least one ammo box (any size) - you can get them at just about any Army Surplus store.

  • Cleaning materials to insure box does not have any dirt or rust.

  • Primer spray paint - preferably a color that will blend to the surroundings of the hide.

  • Secondary paint - (optional) - Used to two tone the geocache and help hide it in surroundings. We recommend a textured paint for added effect.

  • Stencil and contrast spray paint - All geocaches need to be labeled. Using our stencil approach gives you an option for correctly marking your geocache ammo box.

Let us begin... Enjoy the tutorial.
