A quick guide on making an ordinary bison tube into a mushroom.

Step 1: Gather supplies and preheat oven to 275 degrees f.

You will need
Polyform clay
Bison tube
Construction screw
Paint and brush
Small piece of saran (optional)
Super glue

<p>Nice and sneaky! ;)</p>
<p>Only bad part is the screw - that wouldn't be allowed in most cases.</p>
<p>Yup... evil is the word here!! Nice 'ible.. The worst one I found was a hollowed out pine cone with a bison tube glued in it. The only thing that gave it away was the cone didn't look native to eastern Maine.</p><p>Happy trails fellow cachers from RubiconJW &amp; MsKhavingfun</p><p>AKA FN64</p>
I found a cache like that here in Oregon. We looked for nearly a half hour, when I looked up and thought &quot;That's a funny looking pinecone...&quot;
<p>This is pretty cool!</p>
<p>It's not bad, but you MUST make it imperfectly perfect.</p><p>I think doing loads of drugs and picking magic mush rooms etc... as well as the sharp eyed normal people - it's a dead give away that it's a fake IF it does not have the attributes of a mushroom.</p><p>Go to a museum / public library / university library etc., and get a hold of a bunch of entomylogical books, that contain generally black and white drawings of different species of mushrooms - you know - from the days where the only &quot;photograph&quot; was the hand drawn and or painted picture.</p><p>Get into the flawless level of recreation.- but make them a bit faded looking and past their use by date - and starting to decay - so that they look totally real, and not as interesting as bright shiny new ones - that people like to kick over...</p><p>Then you have a marketable product.</p>
Thanks for deeming it &quot;not bad&quot; lol. As for making it more realistic, I have made one before with gills and kinda burnt the top and edges giving it a more deteriorated appearance. Also having grown my own own fungi I hope you don't mind me correcting you, entomology is the study of insects not fungi which is mycology.
Oh man I LOVE this.
<p>As someone who enjoys identifies mushrooms, this would be extremely frustrating. As someone who enjoys geocaching, this is great!</p>
Evil would be a micro rock
yeah I'm glad I have never come across micro rock, it would drive me insane.
love it! im trying to come up with the mose awesome and evil make you laugh afterwards geocashe. ive got some ideas just havent had time to act on them. happy cashing all from cali/montana!
<p>Good job!</p><p>Much cheaper than the geocache.com containers and it is more original!</p>
Wow! This would be awfully hard to find if you didn't know where it is (like me) amazing!
<p>This is just too evil.</p>
I'll take that as a compliment XD
