Getting started

1) Each brush has durability - it's how much blocks i can paint before it breaks.
2) Each brush has a buffer - it's how much blocks it can paint after paint mixing.
3) To mix paint, right click the brush. Set values via clicking on color slides or typing in numbers. Min is 0, Max is 255.
4) Click random button, to get random color.
5) Click done, when done :) ... Oh, and you need to have red, green and blue dyes with bucket of water in your inventory (ore dictionary compatible).
6) Paint everything! Paint appears on block as soon as you update it.
7) Paint is attached to block location, so you can easily remove block and place another one, and it will be colored.
8) You can color on top of existing color. Color will be replaced.
9) When paint buffer of brush is out, it will re consume dyes in order to resupply color.
10) Left click on colored block to pick this block's color. It will also consume dyes.
11) If you don't like colored block, you can remove paint by right clicking with filled water bottle.
