Painting.. Lapis L

As one of the many players of YAH who enjoys decorating the villages & making them colourful via painting the walls & brick floors – It would be GREATTTTTTTTT if LAPIS LAZULI & cinnabars could also be regenerated every 2 weeks (just like how iron & vein & other resources are when there is no player visiting the area) OR (even better) somehow be able to farm/create the paint using the resources around us?

I’ve now reached a stage where even via travelling farrrrrrr with a car, I can’t find a SINGLE Lapis Lazuli (also might be because they are SO TINY and after looking for them for so long rocks looks like lapis lazuli and the cactus flowers look like cinnabars :frowning:

Thank you!
