Back in January 2014, Minecraft skins gained a hat layer. In June of that year, I used the in-game armor textures to make overlays for players to use on their Minecraft skins. My post had several issues:
  • The uploaded skin file was corrupted, so the base layer was white, rather than transparent. This meant that the skin did not work as intended. Half a year later, I noticed and replied with a comment containing a functioning version.
  • I only produced a diamond variation, so it was suggested a couple years later that I produce a version for each armor type. While I posted versions for gold, iron, and chainmail, I didn't feel comfortable trying leather, since the base texture for leather is white, and color (such as the default, brown color) is added in-game. On top of that, I wasn't sure how to approach the additional brown layer that's used on the cap, pants, and boots to distinguish its dyed variations from other types of armor.
  • I didn't work to fix my post.
Now, I've decided to bring the newer armor textures to this skin overlay format, and I have a slightly better grasp on what I'm doing. In my description, I'm including skin overlays for the other types of armor, and I'm including leather, as well as a separate overlay for the "stripes", in case someone wants to change the color of the leather armor, then add the stripes on top of it. I'm also including a version of the leather armor without the stripes, in case anyone wants that for some reason.

I cannot recommend using these as your base skin. Please overlay them on top of another skin.

Leather Armor Skin Overlay
Leather Armor "Stripes" Overlay
Chainmail Armor Skin Overlay
Gold Armor Skin Overlay
LeatherLeather "Stripes"ChainmailGold
Iron Armor Skin Overlay
Diamond Armor Skin Overlay
Netherite Armor Skin Overlay
Leather Armor Skin Overlay Without "Stripes"
IronDiamondNetheriteLeather Without Stripes

Please let me know if I've missed anything or if there is an issue.

All skins from this post were created using official textures.
I hold no ownership nor artistic credit over the textures used.

Edit: There is a known bug [MC-100929] that causes boots and chestplate shoulders to render with the pixels squished. This may affect how believable this skin overlay appears for others. Having a hat layer on your original skin may also make the armor less believable, as it will appear on the same level as the armor.

I apologize for the extremely late response. I don't own any of the textures (they're from the game itself), so feel free to use them as you would with any game assets.

If you're asking if it works, that would depend on what you're trying to do with it.

Sorry for the late reply.

I wanted to do that, but I couldn't figure out a way to make it look right. Overlaying a layer of brown removed some of the contrast.

Since it's Christmas (and the holiday season in general), here's a gift:

If you use the skins in the main post, you may notice that turning off all hat layers in-game leaves you with pants/leggings that are flat against your Minecraft skin. This is because the actual armor in-game has the pants on in inner layer in comparison to the tunic/chestplate and the boots, so I had to put them on the base skin layer. If you just want to use the pants/leggings, here they are as a hat layer:

Leather Pants
Leather Pants "Stripes"
Chainmail Leggings
Gold Leggings
Leather (Uncolored)Leather "Stripes"ChainmailGold
Iron Leggings
Diamond Leggings
Netherite Leggings
Leather Leggings (No Stripes)
IronDiamondNetheriteLeather Without Stripes

Note: These don't work with the full armor overlays from the main post because they'd be on the same layer as the tunic/chestplate and the boots. They work with the cap/helmet if you don't mind copying that from the main post.

Edit: Here's the Imgur album containing all of the skin overlays from the main post and this comment.

With a photo editing program like Photoshop, Paint.NET, or Gimp, open the file for the overlay skin. Use a selection tool (or in some cases, just Ctrl+A) to select the whole image for the overlay texture and copy the selection. Open the file for your original skin, then paste what you copied on top of your original skin texture. Save your new skin (preferably with a different name), then it should be ready to upload.
