Paint Manufacturing Process

When paint was first discovered in ancient days, it was produced by mixing a natural resin from a plant or tree with natural colorants from the earth or plants. The ingredients were mashed together in some type of container. It was not very durable, but it allowed people to create art and illustration. Modern paint manufacturing is much more sophisticated, but it still involves a blending process to disperse pigment into a vehicle system.
