Paint This! enables players to paint with a wide selection of dyes onto canvases of many sizes to sign and frame.
Horsehair is an important part in crafting the various brushes, it can be obtained by shearing horses. Tolerant horses will let you shear their hair. Horses get increasingly annoyed after each individual shear and become tolerant over time, a horse that's completely annoyed will take 3 minutes and 20 seconds to become completely tolerant. Therefore, you'll only get 3 to 4 horsehairs on average in 3 quick shears at complete tolerance.
Bellow are the main crafting recipes. In order of top-down, left-right there is Easel, 1×1 Canvas, Small Paintbrush, Medium Paintbrush, Large Paintbrush, Palette, Palette Knife, and Signing Brush.
Dyes can be added to a palette by placing them around the palette, each relative position corresponds to one of the eight spots on a palette. A palette knife is used to remove dyes. Place the palette knife next to palette in the position of the dye you wish to remove. The palette knife does have durability and is repaired in an anvil with an iron ingot.
To create a canvas larger than 1×1, you arrange canvasess into a rectangular shape such that for each canvas the width of canvases above and bellow are the same and the height of canvases to the left and right are the same. For example to make a 2×1 canvas you place two 1×1 canvases horizontally. Furthermore to make a 2×2 you arrange four 1×1 canvases in a 2 by 2 square.
In order to frame a painting you simply need to surround the canvas with eight sticks.
The largest a canvas can be is 4×4 and they are be placed on a wall or on an easel. Canvases can be framed or unframed, framed canvases are a small amount larger so they can't be placed directly next to one another like unframed canvases can.
An easel is used to hold a canvas while painting. They can support a canvas whose size is at most 3×2, larger canvases will need to be placed on a wall. Easels are very similar to armorstands, so they are affected by gravity and take a couple hits to break.
A palette is what enables you to change the dye on your paintbrush. You do so by putting your brush to the right of the palette in your hotbar and use the palette to put the dye on to the brush which is cycled through the ones on the palette.
The three sizes of paintbrushes, small, medium, and large have a radius of 1, 2, and 3 respectively. To paint use a paintbrush with dye on a canvas and be within the reach of 3 meters.
The signing brush is used to sign your paintings. You apply dye to it like a regular paintbrush and depending on if you use it on the left or right half of the canvas the signature will be placed accordingly. A signed painting can only be edited by the signer.
