Paint is a decorative item.


Used with a paint brush to paint plastered walls. One full can of paint can be used to paint up to ten walls or signs.

Once a can of paint has been used, or if the paint is poured out, it will be replaced with an empty paint bucket, which can be used to collect rain water.


Paint can come in 15 different colours including: black, blue, brown, cyan, green, gray, light blue, light brown, orange, pink, purple, red, turquoise, white, and yellow.

Paint is usually found in crates.
