Shouldn't it be "dem tisch"?

"auf" is a 'wechselpräposition' which basically means that it's akkusativ if there is some kind of movement going on. In this case the paint isn't on the table yet, the tailor puts it there, so there is movement, hence akkusativ. (this is a simplified explanation, if you want more info, just google wechselpräpositionen)

I think dyes or colours would be a better translation than paint here
