Paint



 Paints are primarily a mixture of pigments and the oil or water based binder, which is oil or water based. The proportion of the pigment to the binder determines how glossy the paint is. There are three basic finishes, depending on this proportion: matt, glossy and something in between which is referred to as semi-gloss, eggshell, silk, satin. Water-based paints dry by natural evaporation. They are not as durable as oil-based paints. The latter have a chemical agent that assists in drying.
