ARK: Survival Evolved - How To Make Dye

You can only make dye by using a Cooking Pot or Industrial Cooker in the game. Apart from these, you will need the following:

All of these must be filled 25% or more. Otherwise, they must be connected to a water source within the Industrial Cooker.

  • 2x charcoal, 1x gunpowder, or 1x sparkpowder

After you have collected these, you will need a specific number of berries based on the color that you want to create the dye with.

Once you do this, you can start cooking your dyes on a lit fire. Every batch makes five dyes that you can use.

How to Use Dyes in ARK: Survival Evolved?

After you make your dye, you will want to use the same on your items. Here is a list of items that you can use dye on:

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

To color your items, you will need to use a paintbrush or spray painter. You can get the paintbrush when you reach level nine and can be used to color anything. While spray painting will require more to craft, but it is worth it as it’ll be quicker to paint with in the game. The only thing that you won’t be able to do with it is to use the spray painter as warpaint on your creatures and yourself.

Next, follow these steps:

  • Drag the dye onto the item that you want to color
  • Now, use the attack button to begin painting the object

If you’re too rough with the object and it breaks then you can always use the repair button. This will drag another dye onto the item to fix it.
