Origin of PAINT
Middle English, from Anglo-French paint, peint, past participle of peindre, from Latin pingere to tattoo, embroider, paint; akin to Old English fāh variegated, Greek poikilos variegated, pikros sharp, bitter
a (1): a mixture of a pigment and a suitable liquid to form a closely adherent coating when spread on a surface in a thin coat (2): the pigment used in this mixture especially when in the form of a cake <a box of paints>
b: an applied coating of paint
: a powerful muscular pinto having quarter horse or Thoroughbred ancestry; broadly:pinto —called also paint horse
Decorative and protective coating commonly applied to rigid surfaces as a liquid consisting of a pigment suspended in a vehicle, or binder. The vehicle, usually a resin dissolved in a solvent, dries to a tough film, binding the pigment to the surface. Paint was used for pictorial and decorative purposes in the caves of France and Spain as early as 15,000 BC.
