Shadow Paint can be used to color blocks by using a Paintbrush, and walls by using a Paint Roller. It can be removed from surfaces (not regained) using a Paint Scraper.

The Shadow Paint turns any wall or block completly black, making them nearly indistinguishable from other blocks or walls painted the same color despite their shape. The difference between this paint and Black Paint is that Black paint tinges blocks and walls a darker color and doesn't turn them completly black.

The Shadow Paint can be purchased via the Painter, after the Wall of Flesh has been defeated, and hardmode is unlocked.
