Paint bird and lions roaming (8)


I believe the answer is:


'paint' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'bird and lions roaming' is the wordplay.
'bird' becomes 'emu' (emu is a kind of bird).
'and' says to put letters next to each other.
'roaming' indicates an anagram.
'lions' with letters rearranged gives 'lsion'.

(Other definitions for emulsion that I've seen before include "Wall paint" , "Type of paint" , "Mixture of insoluble liquids" , "Mixture involving two liquids which do not readily combine" .)

I've seen this clue in The Sun.
