How to make all paints (Dyes) in ARK: Survival Evolved!
In ARK: Survival Evolved, paints (officially called Dyes), are items that have purely aesthetic utility. With them you can customize basically everything in the game: structures, items, weapons, mobs and even yourself.
To make paints you need to gather the necessary materials for each different dye. The quantity and type of items needed varies depending on the color you want to obtain, but all recipes require the use of:
- 1x Pot or 1x Industrial Stove.
- 1x Water Jar, 1x Wine Barrel or 1x Flask with at least 25% water.
The Pan or Industrial Stove are the items where the ingredients will be prepared. Each batch generates 5 Dyes. Check below the complete list of recipes for all colors.
