ARK : How To Make Dye


In Ark: Survival Evolved, you may change the colour of an object by applying different dyes. Almost everything you possess in the game may be customized, allowing you to show off your own sense of style. Dye options are nearly infinite, but your colour options are restricted.

In all, there are 25 colours that you may make, but you may need a few items to get the job done. In Ark: Survival Evolved, dyes aren’t required, but that doesn’t imply they are worthless. For some people, looking good is as vital as staying alive. Let’s have a look at everything you need to recolor your products.

Charles Burgar updated the article on October 30th, 2021: The Ark is more than just a survival story. Players in this game have the ability to build gigantic structures, participate in massive PvP battles, or establish the world’s largest dinosaur collection. Your constructions and dinos will need to stand out from the crowd no matter how you play Ark. You can learn more about applying dyes, painting with different methods, and reorganizing our recipe section in this revised tutorial.

How To Craft Coloring Dye

In order to make dye, you’ll need a Cooking Pot or an Industrial Cooker, which you may get from a local hardware store. Organize your materials into groups that can be combined to create a specific dye in this section. Each dye has its own set of creating instructions. To be sure, no matter what mix of materials you choose to create a particular hue, there are three essential elements that you will always need on hand.

Here are the necessary ingredients:

  • 1x Canteen, Water Jar, or Waterskin (filled at least 25%) or an Irrigation System
  • 2x Charcoal or 1x Sparkpowder or 1x Gunpowder
  • Specific Berries to craft a specific color

It will take time for the dye to be crafted in your chosen cooker after it has been lit. You should also be aware that each batch of ingredients will create five dyes for you to use.

What Is Dye Used For?

Dye is used to customize your items and creatures by giving them a personal pop of color.

Here are a few things you can dye:

  • Armor
  • Saddles
  • Creatures
  • Weapons
  • Buildings
  • Structures
  • Miscellaneous Items

How To Apply Dye To Items And Dinos

If you want to colour buildings in order to create the ultimate base, you’ll need either a paintbrush or a spray painter to do this. If you want to use either object, you will need to drag the dye of your choice onto the item in order to fill it with the colour of your choice. From there, you may start painting an item by pressing the attack button. You may “fix” either item if the durability of either item is compromised by dragging another dye over the damaged area.

To make either painting item, you’ll need the following materials:

The Difference Between A Paintbrush And Spray Painter

Paintbrush may be used to colour almost anything in Ark, including war paint on dinosaurs and characters. Each colour may be stored for a total of 10 applications before its durability is depleted completely. Painting an item will require repeated swings at it from different directions. Paintbrushes, on the other hand, are quite inexpensive to produce and are accessible from level nine.

Spray Painters necessitate the use of somewhat more resources in their creation, but the results are well worth it. Spray Painters colour goods far more quickly and are much more efficient when utilizing dyes than other types of painters. Sadly, Spray Painters are unable to apply war paint on dinos or players, which means you’ll have to resort to using a Paintbrush in those situations.



How can you make paint?

To create your own paint, combine 1 cup warm water with 12 ounces each of white flour and table salt and whisk until you have a thick, creamy mixture. Then, divide the mixture into many containers and add 2-3 drops of food coloring to each container, stirring well, until the mixture is a consistent hue.

How do you make acrylic paint?

You can make acrylic paints by mixing pure powdered pigment with a binder and a solvent.
