Dyes can be used to colour some blocks and items (such as clothing materials or cotton blocks). Blocks and items can be dyed by crafting them with the required colour of dye. Dyes are crafted items made from naturally grown and farmed plants, or by crafting two or more dyes together. There are eight colours available in addition to the natural colours of some items (such as leather or fur):
Blue dye can be obtained by crafting a tulip.
Red dye can be obtained by crafting a rose.
White dye can be obtained by crafting an apple blossom or by crafting red and blue and yellow dyes together. Alternately, many blocks and items can be coloured white (or undyed) by crafting them with potato starch.
