How To Make Paint

Paint, otherwise known as dye can be used to colour dinos, buildings, armour, saddles, weapons and more.

You can check what items are able to be dyed by dragging the dye over it, if it turns blue you can dye it.

To craft them you'll need a Cooking Pot or Industrial Cooker.

Each recipe requires:

  • 1x Waterskin, 1x Water Jar or 1x Canteen (filled at least 25%)
  • 2x Charcoal, 1x Gunpowder or 1x Sparkpowder
  • Berries (amount and type will depend on the colour you want)

Put the items into the Cooking Pot or Industrial Cooker then light it or turn it on.

The list below creates five dyes at a time.

You can multiple the required items as many times as you want to get the amount you wish.
