How to dye leather in Minecraft

Customization is one of the greatest cornerstones of Minecraft. This is especially true when you consider that customizing your looks contributes a great deal to this idea and customizing leather armor is no exception to this. In this article, we shall go over how you can dye your leather which is unique since leather armor is one of the only armor types that can have its color scheme changed in-game.


Materials Required


The list of items you will need is not too large, though some may be a tad difficult to acquire based on the biome that you are in. Here is the list below:


  1. Water Bucket

  1. Cauldron

  1. Full set of leather armor

  1. Dye of your choosing


How To Dye Leather Armor In Minecraft


Thankfully, dying leather armor is more or less the same whether your playing Java, Bedrock, or even Pocket Edition. Here are the steps to achieving your freshly colored leather armor.


Step 1


Firstly, you’ll want to build a cauldron that you will then place down on the ground for your personal use. Once it’s been placed pour your water-filled bucket into the cauldron to fill it to the brim.

Next, you’ll want to pick the dye of your choice and add it to the cauldron by clicking the use button. The color of the water should change depending on the dye that you have chosen.
