To use the paintbrush, drag the chosen coloring onto the paintbrush to apply the color to it. Then, Attack (lmb on PC or on Xbox) the chosen structure, NPC, or player to bring up the painting menu. Here, you can select and preview the paint regions for the selected target. The chosen coloring can be changed in this menu by dragging a new coloring onto the brush, although this will override the current coloring's remaining amount.
For faster and more efficient structure painting, use the Spray Painter.
Pro Tip: If you are painting a flag or signs with multiple colors, keep a paint brush for every color in your inventory, loaded with each individual color you need. You won't go through a dye every time it has to change colors. Very helpful for painting lots of flags, sails or signs with colorful custom designs.
