Poison paint is not a poison in and of itself, but is rather an alchemical concoction designed to be mixed with contact poison. The mixture of paint and poison is then brushed onto a surface, waiting for its first victim. Poison paint serves three purposes, each of them very useful to the potential poisoner, whether the poison is intended to be used for assassination or as a trap to discourage thievery. First, poison paint greatly increases the longevity of any contact poison it is mixed with, allowing the poison to still be fully effective as much as a month after it is applied. Second, poison paint effectively takes on the properties of the poison, doubling the amount of area the poison could cover by itself. Lastly, poison paint is available in every colour imaginable, meaning it can be painted on virtually any surface and remain undetected. However, poison paint does remain tacky for a full ten days after it is applied, and the patch of wet paint can be noticed with a Spot Skill check (DC 20).
