Paint. n.s. [from the verb.]
- Colours representative of any thing.
Poets are limners
To copy out ideas in the mind,
Words are the paint by which their thoughts are shown,
And nature is their object to be drawn. Granville.

Her charms in breathing paint engage,
Her modest cheek shall warm a future age. Pope.

Together lay her pray'r book and her paint. Anon.
