Ark Survival Evolved has a lot of things for players to do and for those who want to add a bit more life to their game, they can make use of the many colors of dye in the game.
With a certain dye, you can change the color of not only items that you have but also paint Dinos as well as structures to your liking.
Dye can be made by players and there are several colors to choose from to make the perfect look for your gear and base.
How To Make Dye
Dyes can be crafted via a Cooking Pot or by using an Industrial Cooker, which requires a water source to create each dye. Making dye in a Cooking Pot will take much longer but it can still get the job done if you want to get dye early in the game.
Using an Industrial Cooker is the best option if you want to mass-produce a lot of dye for the many things you want to color in the game.
How To Use Dye
Currently, there are few uses for dye which are mainly to paint your base and Dinos as well as to modify the colors on certain pieces of equipment.
1) Coloring Equipment
You can use dye to color your equipment by dragging the dye on top of your equipment in your inventory, which will open the Apply Dye menu.
This will allow you to select a region and change its color, altering the appearance of the equipment as well as its icon when viewed in your inventory.
You can reapply the dye at any time if you wish to change the color again but each time you do this, it will consume one of the dyes that you have.
You can use a Paintbrush or a Spray Painter to apply a color to one of your structures, which allows you to select the region you want to be painted.
Using a Paintbrush limits your choices and requires that you paint each region of a structure one by one but with a Spray Painter, you can apply a set of colors to each region.
The Spray Painter will allow you to pick out regions and will allow you to simply spray them onto each structure to make things faster.
Using a Paintbrush on your Dinos will allow you to paint on them, which will let you draw whatever you want, and this can also be done on a Painting Canvas.

Making use of the different kinds of dye in the game can add a little more personal touch to things, making it more fun for certain players.
This is a great way for you to customize your items and make your base appear even better when you have the time to do so.
Be sure to double-check the resources you put though as sometimes there will be conflicts and other dye can be made if the resources for it are present.
