Affies Midnight Secrets
Welcome
(1/5/09) IMPORTANT: I'm going to have to take a break from neopets for a while just because I have too many other things to deal with. This page will no longer be updated, and may be deleted later on. Some of the prices may be outdated, so if you're using them, be sure to double check the actual prices on the trading post. Of course, there's always an easier option. You can check out another guide, The Paintorium, which is a much more useful guide anyway. I'm sorry about any troubles.

Well, it seems that you have stumbled across my PB guide. Welcome. This is a guide that tracks all of the current prices for paint brushes and has some info on how they work. =)

What Are Paint Brushes?
Paint Brushes are rare items found in Neopia that paint your pet different colors, and sometimes have special themes to them that adds an even more special twist. For example, the Grey Paint Brush not only turns your pet grey, but it changes the posture and the mood of the character so you get into a mood of depression.

These paint brushes are rare and can get pretty expensive, because they're a one time use only. They can only be used once, so after you use it on a pet, it disappears. So choose wisely!

Where Can I Find Them?
Paint Brushes can be found all over Neopia. The most common way is saving up some NP and buying them from other users at the Trading Post and Auctions. Some of the cheaper ones that are under 100k can also be found in user shops. Below I have a list of Paint Brushes and their average prices it would be easier than going to the TP and looking up how much each one costs.

There is also the Hidden Tower. The hidden tower is the only main shop that restocks paint brushes. There's only 3 that Queen Fyora restocks. Baby, Darigan, and Royal. Those 3 paint brushes sell for about the same amount of NP as the users on the TP (but slightly more). I like the Hidden Tower because you can buy immediately. It's not like the other shops where you keep refreshing and refreshing. Also, you don't have to wait around for someone to accept your offer or for the auction to end.

Some people just find paint brushes by getting lucky! You can get a paint brush through a random event from Jacko The Painter, which is very rare. There's also the wheels. The two wheels that will give you paint brushes are The Fruit Machine and The Wheel of Monotony. There's also Test Your Strength and The Vending Machine. Also every once in a while Tarla comes along and hands out PBs. Here's a Tarla FAQ here. This tells you all about who Tarla is, etc.

How Do I Use a Paint Brush?
When you recieve a paint brush, it automatically goes to your inventory. But I suggest putting it in your SDB immediately so it doesn't get stolen by the Pant Devil. Then when you're ready to use it, put it back in your inventory.

When you want to paint your pet, go to the Rainbow Pool. At the front page you should see the PB's that you currently have and your neopets. Under each of your neopets, there is a dropdown box. Click the dropdown box of the neopet you wish to paint, and select the color you want it to be. Note: Not all neopets can be painted all colors. If a neopet can't be painted a certain color, that option won't show up in the dropdown box. Once you've chosen the color you want your pet to be, click submit. Pretty easy right?

What Will My Neopet Look Like?
It's best to know what it will look like before you paint, because you don't want to paint and then realize that you don't like the way it looks, especially since PB's are very expensive nowadays. Go to the All Neopet Colours section of the Rainbow Pool to find the best color to paint your pet.

There's a Lot of Colors That Don't Have Paint Brushes!
Yes, that's true. Not all neopets colors can be obtainable through paint brushes. The other common ways you can get a painted pet are through the Lab Ray, the Rainbow Fountain, and Transmogrification Potions. These aren't all of them, but they are the most common.

To get access to the Lab Ray, you have to collect all nine pieces of the Secret Laboratory Map. Once you do, you get one free visit per day for all eternity. The Lab Ray can give you a stat change, gender change, or color change. All changes are random.

To access the Rainbow Fountain, you need to get a quest from the Fountain Faerie (FFQ). All FFQs are also random and extremely rare. Complete the quest and you get access to the Rainbow Fountain, where the Fountain Faerie will paint your active pet any color. Once again, the Fountain Faerie doesn't have all colors available.

Transmogrification Potions will morph your pet into a mutant of that species. For example, a Blumaroo Transmogrification Potion would turn any pet into a Mutant Blumaroo, etc. These potions can be found for a range of prices on the trading post and auctions, or Sloth may show up in a random event and give one to you.

Who's Boochi?
Boochi is a baby bruce with a raygun. He comes in a random event to try and zap your active pet. Sometimes he hits, sometimes he misses. If he zaps your pet, it'll turn into a baby of the species. This random event can be good and bad, depending on who you are and what color your active pet currently is. If you have a maraquan draik and he zaps it, that's usually not a good thing .. unless you were planning to paint it baby anyway. But if you have a red xweetok, then that's a good thing for most people =). If your pet is already baby, well, nothing happens xD. If you don't want boochi to zap an expensive pet, make sure you have a different pet as your active that you're willing to let him zap.

What Does "Retired" Mean?
When you view the rarity of a paint brush, it may say "Retired" on it. What this means is that the PB is no longer available in the main shops. It can still be used, and your pet will still look the way it's supposed to be.

However, there are 2 paint brushes that will NOT paint your pet anymore. Those are Glass and Stone.



These two paint brushes will not paint your neopets, but they can still be found and work as great collectables =)

What's With the Lutari PB?
Currently, the Lutari Paint Brush doesn't do anything to your pet, it doesn't do anything at all actually. Since now there is a Lutari Island, it probably goes with that. We don't know if TNT will ever release the pet color, so all we can do now is wait and stare at the pretty colors =)
