(See also: Dyes)

Dyeing is the action of coloring a block, item, or mob with dye, sometimes by crafting, sometimes by right clicking.

There are 16 different colors of dyes:

The Action

Blocks can be dyed by putting the block and the color of dye that you want in a crafting table, and there are four dyeable blocks in the game: Wool, Hardened Clay, Glass, and Concrete Powder (upcoming). Items are dyed the same way as blocks, and the only type of dyeable item currently in the game is Leather Armor, but any piece of Leather Armor can be dyed multiple times with different dyes, allowing for many different colorful combinations. To revert dyed leather armor back to its original state, hold the armor piece in-hand and right click a cauldron with water in it. Sheep can be dyed by right-clicking, which is more practical than dyeing wool if you want a bunch of one color, and, as of 1.4, tamed wolves' collars can also be dyed the same way.
