ARK: Survival Evolved - how to make dye

Colouring in ARK: Survival Evolved is used to customize structures and items with various colours. Almost everything can be coloured, including building parts, flags, armour, saddles, weapons, as well as living creatures (including players) and Robot Creatures.

Any dye is crafted in a Cooking Pot or Industrial Cooker.

All recipes use this as a base:

1  Water Jar,  Waterskin or  Canteen filled to 25% or more or being connected to a water source in the  Industrial Cooker.
2 ×  Charcoal or 1 ×  Gunpowder or 1 ×  Sparkpowder

When you place the ingredients in the cooking pot or the industrial cooker, and light/turn on, you must allow the items time to cook. Each batch of ingredients cooks 5 dyes.
