Overview[edit | edit source]

Along with a Paintbrush.png Paintbrush and Sky Coloring.png Dyes, the Painting Canvas is used by survivors to display both personally made artworks or listed information such as recipes. If possession of a Camera.png Camera, the individual could upload their inspiration or copy other's.

Construction[edit | edit source]

Canvases attach directly to the face of walls, vaults, and refrigerators, but do not snap to any structures. Care must be taken during placement as the texture of the wall behind can protrude through the canvas itself.

It is possible to place multiple canvases adjacently such that the borders of the actual canvas areas touch, and the wooden frames overlap, so that larger 'multi-canvas' artworks can be created by loading each canvas with an image that is a slice from the larger picture. In such usage, there will be small diamond holes left where the corners of the canvas' meet. See the gallery for an example.

Notes[edit | edit source]

For tools, resources or PC modifications related to painting, see Painting.

  • Interestingly enough in single-player mode, if a 2nd player joins via controller and account [on PS4] and takes a picture using the Camera.png Camera and then paint it; it will reveal the camera image split horizontally showing what both players' characters are looking at (even if it's each other).
  • On the PS4 in Singleplayer mode, more than 10 Painted Canvases placed in a single area will cause lag only to that area.
  • The Painting Canvas is treated as a thatch structure and can be damaged by anything except non-explosive ranged attacks.

Painting and Color Regions

In addition to their preset paint regions, you can doodle on the Painting Canvas by "attacking" them with a Paintbrush.png Paintbrush, which will open the "Apply Paint" Menu. Then, click and drag your cursor over the 3D model (like a paintbrush) to draw anything you want. See Painting for more information on doodling.

For more information on Paint Regions and how to use them, please view the Blue Coloring.png Dye, Paintbrush.png Paintbrush, or Spray Painter.png Spray Painter pages.
