First you need to craft (or get from the creative inventory) a palette and a canvas. Crafting recipes are given below.
When crafting a palette, any combination of dyes will do, but you need at least one dye.
You can then fill the palette with other dyes if you want.
There are currently four kinds of canvases. The basic one is 1 block sized. The others are 1x2, 2x1 and 2x2 block sized.
Using a canvas (by itself) with right-click lets you view its content.
Using a palette (by itself) lets you open the palette interface, where you can mix colors to create custom ones.
Using a canvas in one hand and a palette on the other lets you open both interfaces at once, where you can paint on the canvas using the colors on your palette. You can mix colors here as well.
Another option is to place the canvas on an easel and right click the easel with a palette at hand.
The color mixing rules work the same way as the vanilla leather armor dyeing mechanic.
Change the brush size or opacity with the mouse wheel or by clicking on the GUI element
Undo mistakes with the CTRL+Z shortcut
After painting a canvas, you can use it on a wall similar to vanilla paintings to hang it on the wall.
Hitting the hanged canvas or breaking a block it rests on will drop it back as an item.
Sign a painting to give it a name and make it unchangeable.
Copy signed paintings by crafting them together with an empty canvas of the same shape.

You can fill an existing palette with other dyes later:
