Paint your things with Dyes

Dye This substance can be used to color certain items and structures.

There are currently 25 different dyes available. Recipes[edit | edit source] Dyes are crafted in a Cooking Pot or Industrial Cooker. All recipes use:
* 1 full Water Jar, Waterskin or Canteen
* 2 × Charcoal or 1 × Gunpowder or 1 × Sparkpowder
* An amount of berries depending on the desired color as listed below. After the ingredients are placed in the cooking pot or the industrial cooker, it must be lit and allowed to cook. Each batch of ingredients cooks 5 dyes. Tips[edit | edit source]
* If you are making any dye with mixed berries (green, purple, pink, tan, etc.) do not put more than one water jar or skin in the pot or you will get the dye's constituent colors, not the color itself. For example, if you put ingredients for purple in with more than one water container, you will get red and blue dyes, not purple. However, if you add 3 water, you at the same time make all three of the colors, e.g. with purple components you make purple, red and blue at the same time.
* Do not use Sparkpowder as a fuel source for dyes requiring 2 × Charcoal or 1 × Gunpowder as it will make the dyes that use Sparkpowder instead. For example, Brown requires 2 × Charcoal, but if you use Sparkpowder for fuel, it will make Cyan instead. Even changing the order of where the Sparkpowder is doesn't help. Use Thatch for fuel without complications Table of Dyes[edit | edit source] Dye Color Hex Code Black 15 2 #1c1c1c Blue 15 2 #0000ff Brick 12 6 1 #94321c Brown 6 3 9 2 #756046 Cantaloupe 7 7 4 1 #ff9a00 Cyan 6 12 1 #00ffff Forest 7 7 4 1 #006b00 Green 9 9 2 #00ff00 Magenta 9 9 1 #e71cd9 Mud 4 1 7 6 1 #463b2b Dye Color Hex Code Navy 12 6 1 #32326b Olive 12 6 1 #baba59 Orange 9 9 2 #ff8800 Parchment 12 6 1 #ffffba Pink 12 6 1 #ff7be1 Purple 9 9 2 #7b00e0 Red 15 2 #ff0000 Royalty 7 7 4 1 #7b00a8 Silver 6 12 1 #e0e0e0 Sky 12 6 1 #bad4ff Dye Color Hex Code Slate 12 6 1 #595959 Tan 4 1 7 6 1 #ffedb2 Tangerine 7 7 4 1 #ad652b White 15 2 #fefefe Yellow 15 2 #ffff00 Downloadable PDF[edit | edit source] All dye-recipes on one page as PDF-file (good for printing). Usage[edit | edit source] To color your items like armor, weapons and saddles, you simply drag the dye over the item you want to color. Items that are able to be colored will be highlighted green to indicate this. After this a menu will open where you can select the layer of the item that you want to color. Each layer requires one dye. Coloring your base requires a Paintbrush or a Spray Painter. To use the Paintbrush, drag the wanted color onto it. Then, you can click on the structure you want to color and again select which part of the structure you want to dye (color region). The brush contains 10 charges of the selected color, so you can paint more than one structure part with it. The paintbrush is also used to apply war paint to tamed creatures and other players.* To use the Spray Painter, drag the wanted color onto it. To color a structure, stand in front of it and press left click. If you hold the alt-fire button (default: right mouse) and then the number keys 1-6, you can select which color region you want to dye. *War paint is currently not available in the Xbox version Notes[edit | edit source]
* Keep in mind you do not need to use the whole paintbrush on one item. You can put dye on the brush and paint up to 10 items. Gallery[edit | edit source] Thatch mw.loader.load('ext.slideboxlightshow'); Wood
