1. What is paint?

Paint is a liquid material. It gets dried to a lovely finish. Through a complex process, the liquid gets transformed into a thick consistency, which makes the application process easy. 


A manufacturer will use four components in paint, and they are pigment, solvent, additives, and resin. The resin acts like a binder that holds pigments together. Resin allows the colour to adhere to the surface. Additives, another critical component of paint, enhances the properties of the paint. Additives will enable you to glide the paint easily on the wall with a brush. 


Apart from this, additives make it scuff and mould resistant. Solvents act as a carrier, and it binds both resin and pigments together. Finally, pigments are what give the paint its sheen and colour. They are categorised into two groups, extender and prime. The prime pigment will consist of colours, such as red, yellow, green oxide, and white. At the same time, the group of extenders will include barytes, mica, talc, calcium carbonate, to name a few. 


It was the French and Spanish people who first made use of paint. The first use of paint can be traced back to some 20,000 to 25,000 years ago. Unlike today, artists used to use natural substances to paint the walls. Things like milkweed sap, blood, lard, juices from berries, charcoal, and earth pigments, these were often utilised. Even Hebrews and Egyptians used these materials to paint the wooden parts of their ships in order to create a protective coating. 

However, the actual paint mill was built by Thomas Child in the 1700s. The paint mill was situated in Boston, Massachusetts. In the year 1867, the company started mixing paints to sell to different consumers.
