Paint is used to modify the color of objects. Nearly anything can be painted, including blocks, background walls, and furniture, along with non-collectable environment objects like trees, tall grass, flowers, and other ambient growth. Basic paint is purchased from the Painter. Two of the same color can be combined at a Dye Vat to create "Deep" color versions, which are required in order to paint certain objects.

Paint is applied to blocks and furniture with the Paintbrush, and to walls with the Paint Roller, with each tile consuming one bucket of paint. The Paint Sprayer will automatically paint items when placing them. Paint can be removed with the Paint Scraper, although this will not place paint back into the player's inventory. If a painted block is destroyed, you will receive the block but the paint is destroyed.

If more than one color is present in the player's inventory, the color in the earliest inventory slot is used first (starting from the top-left slot).

The Deep variety of Paint is crafted at the Dye Vat from two of the same color paint. Deep paints are more vivid versions of colors, and are also required in order to paint certain objects. These include Statues, Trees, and certain background walls (eg. Cloud Walls), except in the case of White and Gray, which can be used on those objects without crafting the Deep variety first. Objects which are normally white or gray (e.g., Switches) will be at best very faintly colored, unless Deep paints are used.

Variations[edit | edit source]

The basic paint is purchased from the Painter for 25 Copper Coin per bucket (except Shadow Paint (50 Copper Coin) and Negative Paint (75 Copper Coin) which are only available in Hardmode). Deep paints allow painting blocks that ordinary Paints would not normally affect, eg. Gray Brick or Glass Blocks. They are crafted at the Dye Vat with 2 basic paints.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Painted blocks and walls will show up in the minimap, letting you mark the map (assuming you use enough paint of the designated color).
  • Painting doors cost less paint if painting the doors while they are closed, (3 paint for closed door, 6 for open).
    • It's also possible to apply paint to 3 random spots of an open door, close it, and re-open it.This will paint the entire door.
  • Painting a source of light will not change the color of the light.
  • Regular and deep paints appear to apply their color differently- regular paints appear to "re-tint" objects, changing existing colors to the new color, while deep paints seem to apply their color on top of the object. The inability to paint "monochrome"-colored objects like Gray Bricks with normal Paints seems to be a result of this behavior.
