As most of us know from OliverFrenchieo s tutorial/info

on the latest 1.4 snapshot, armor will have the

ability to be colored. So, I decided to have a peak

at what kind of interesting combinations can

be created. Without further adieu, we begin!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

First off, you need to gather your materials. In this case,


cow
leather
and
dyes
.
The
cow
leather
is for crafting your


leather
armor,
which can be
dyed
.


To make
leather
armor, see below:

Secondly, go gather your preliminary dyes. These will get you started on your way to combining dyes. Here are the objects that will give you specific preliminary
c

r

Now, to business! >:D


You have all your pretty
c
o
l
o
r
s
, so now you can start combining certain
c
o
l
o
r
s
to obtain new
c
o
l
o
r
s
. I have made a chart to depict this ever-enchanting process. :3

Yayz! Now, you remembered to keep a backup of those preliminary
c
o
l
o
r
s
, right? Good. :)


(NOTE: The purple dye is obtained from the red + blue combination. Pink is obtained from the red + white combination.)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Take out that leather armor you made, and choose your favorite
c
o
l
o
r
(or colors, if you want a different color for each piece of armor)
from the now large collection. Simply plop each piece into your crafting table grid, and voilà ! Stylish armor to wear! :D


(Me in my favorite colors, + crafting recipes.)

Don't like your styled armor
? Not to worry!


Simply
wash it by right clicking on a filled cauldron. ;)

Note: These are not all the possible combinations. Try combining 3, 4, and even 5 dyes together on a piece of leather armor to see if it gets a different color.

Thanks Zaphod. ;)
What about it needs more detail, though? Should I put item names and color names on the pictures, or add more to the How-To bit?

Well you go into enough detail, but the actual topic needs scope/detail, ultimately it's a guide for adding dye to armour to create coloured armour, could have been explained in a couple of sentences. Not meant in a nasty way, I do wish I could have presentation like you.

Ok, thanks Zaphod. I appreciate the feedback. :)
I know that I could have done a simple short tutorial saying 'Get dye. Put dye + armor in crafting bench. You're done!' I didn't want to make it like that, though, and decided to add more to it.
