In ARK: Survival Evolved, inks (officially called Dyes) are items that have purely aesthetic utility. With them you can customize basically everything in the game: structures, items, weapons, mobs and even yourself.

To make paints you need to gather the materials needed for each different Dye. The amount and type of items needed will vary depending on the color you want to get, but all recipes require the use of:

  • 1x pan ou 1x Industrial Stove.
  • 1x Water Jar, 1x Wineskin ou 1x Canteen with at least 25% Water.

The Pot or Industrial Stove are the items where the ingredients will be prepared. each batch generates 5 Dyes. Check out the full list of recipes for all colors below.
