You will need three colors of paint in a motif that will fit your surroundings.
I strongly recommend flat or satin finishes. Try to avoid high gloss that might be reflective.
I am using green, tan, and black. I will be painting some military surplus ammo cans to be used for geocaching.
You may also wish to clear coat your work when done and for metals it is recommended to primer the surface before painting.
Step 1: Gather Materials
Something to paint
I am painting an ammo can purchased at my local military surplus store. The paint is in three colors. I am also using primer and a clear coat on the ammo cans. I will also need sand paper to prep the ammo cans.
Step 2: Prep the Surface
The lids of the ammo cans slide off the half barrel hinges easily making them easier to prep and paint.
Step 3: Start Painting
Step 4: Add Leaves, Paint
Step 5: Change Colors, Repeat
Step 6: Finish Your Project
Lastly go out and use you newly camouflaged toy. I am using these ammo cans for geocache containers, hopefully for a night cache.
Have fun and be safe.
