So, you wanna paint this house is yours? This fence looks plain? Then you gotta know how to make paint!
All right, here it goes...
Step 1. Get water.
This isnt too hard, just pop a bottle(400g in general shop) and go get water. Woohoo.
Step 2. Get a fish
Again, pretty straightforward, just fish until you get... well, a fish.
Step 3. Get herbs.
This is the part where it gets more complicated. You need 10x herb of the color you want. It goes like this.
EDIT: in (), MY Success rates(rD handi, and 65 dex, for comparison purposes)
Green = Base herb(56%)
Yellow = Sunlight herb(53%)
Red = Bloody herb(53%)
Blue = Mana herb(46%)
Black = Garbage herb(Finally a use for these :D)(36%)
White = White herb(duh)(36%)
Purple = Poison herb(46%)
Gold = Gold herb(46%)
Step 4. Get out your handicraft it, and craft it
So, getting back to simple. Just get out your handicraft kit, and craft the paint.
If you suceeded, well gratz, you got some paint.
But you may say : "Whats that, only 8 colors? Zomg I want more"
Well, the answer to this is...
THE PAINT MIXER
(Iron plate x 10, Homestead stone x 10)
It's pretty easy to make, if your refining rank is low, ask a fellow refiner, they are everywhere.
The interface looks like this:
So, the paint mixer allows you to mix paints.
In this example, I tried mixing Green and Gold paint:
As you can see, there is a success rate that appeared, a % bar for each paint, and a preview of the color you'll get.
So, you decide to start mixing after fixing the rates...
Cool animation too, like a chemist or something.
And then, BAM!
This is a Gold/Green paint, successfully mixed.
So, you could pretty much make any type of paint color. Also, you can mix MIXED PAINT, allowing for even more color mixes. But beware of fails.....
(Thanks to the wiki for the info about herbs and how to make paint)
EDIT1: Added success rates for paint creation with handicraft.
