Visual Encyclopedia


Paint is any liquid, liquefiable, or composition that, after application to a substrate in a thin layer, converts to a solid film. It is most commonly used to protect, color, or provide texture to objects. Paint can be made or purchased in many colors—and in many different types, such as watercolor, synthetic, etc. Paint is typically stored, sold, and applied as a liquid, but most types dry into a solid.

WIP for AP Concentration Piece

Pros of Tempera Paint: - Great substitute for watercolors - Can build up opacity unlike watercolors - Bright, vivid colors - Liquid form makes it easier to mix colors - Fun to experiment w/ other media such as color pencils and pastels Cons: - Some colors looks terrible mixed together such as blue and yellow tempera for an ugly shade of green - A serious pain to remove (especially on clothing) - Color sometimes looks lighter than desired when dried - A pain to bring to and from school :( - Need to take special precautions to protect bag's contents when placing the paint inside

High speed photographic image of colorful paint splatting into many different forms. It's incredible what the lens can let the human eye see.
