To begin, you will need leather armor, which you can craft from the leather that drops when you kill cows (also donkeys, mules, horses, etc.), and you will also need a standard dye of your choice, which can be obtained from various sources (flowers, plants, etc.) and is also used to paint everything else in the game. When you have these items to dye armor in Minecraft, follow the instructions below.

Just as when dying candles, glass, or beds, you can combine dyes to get different colors, so place them around the item on the crafting table and check the result in the output field – once you are happy with the color, just pick it up. If you mistakenly painted an item in a color you don’t like, just fill the cauldron with water and interact with it to wash the dye off.
