This short tutorial explains the dyeing process in ARK: Survival Evolved. It will tell you about the crafting and mixing of colors and explain how to apply them.
Before you can actually dye your clothes, you’ll have to produce dye. Its base ingredients are berries (their color will determine the colour of the product). You also need some water.Put the water and the berries into the inventory of a cooking pot and ensure that there’s some fuel too. Ignite the fire below the pot (key “E”), and wait a short time. The dye will now appear in the cooking pot’s inventory.
To actually dye an item you have to drag the dye onto the item inside your inventory. If it’s possible to dye that kind of item, a dialouge window will open. In it, please select the appropriate region. After a click on “Dye now” your garment will be dyed, and the neccessary pigments removed from your inventory.
