Update: Just to clarify one thing… I made this page as an archive of the tutorial that I submitted to instructable.com but I have been using this technique and the supplies mentioned for several years. I even made a post at HC two years ago where I showed the picture of the green boxes and that post can still be seen here. I also posted a picture and talked about the Duplicolor paint layers technique on the DIYstompboxes forum back in 2003 – five years ago!
