To use a paint brush, a pirate must be the owner or a manager of the building, deed-holder of a ship or owner or roommate of a house that is to be painted. The paint brush can be found under the "Miscellaneous" section of the Booty panel. Clicking on the paint brush and selecting "Paint" from the item menu will bring up a window allowing the painter to preview the scene with any of the color combinations possible. To finish painting, choose the "Paint" option on the preview window.
If a pirate does not have enough paint in the hold, they will be given the option to buy the necessary amount from the dockside at the lowest prices available on the island. If there is not enough paint available between the hold and the dockside, the "Paint" button will be greyed out. The button will also be greyed out if the color selected is the current color. Note that housing does not have a hold, therefore pirates will not be able to order paint directly from a stall or shoppe and transfer it in later.
Prior to release 2005-07-12, pirates were required to have the paint in the ship's hold. The automated dockside purchase was unavailable.
