Say you’ve made some tack for your horse, but that light brown and white really clashes with her pretty coat. Or maybe you just don’t like the way it looks. Luckily, Infinite Wilds lets you dye both clothes and tack items pretty much whatever color you want. There is a near infinite number of possible recipes and more colors than you can shake a riding crop at.
However, before you start mixing random berries or flowers into dyes, you need to make glass bottles to keep them in!
In order to make a glass bottle, we’ll need two very important tools. We’ll need a shovel, which is unlockable for 100 Essence, and we’ll need a Furnace. You need to own a ranch before building a furnace, and a fair amount of stone and wood. Unfortunately you can’t use someone else’s.
First, let’s gather the raw ingredients for our glass bottles.
We need to go to a beach where there are seashells and gather a bunch, it only takes two or so for one batch of calcium carbonate but it’s nice to have extra.
While we’re there, we need to dig up a bunch of shovels of sand. Just activate the shovel and hold your left mouse button down till you see “100%” then let up, and a shovel of sand will be put in your inventory.
After that, we need to find a place in the ocean where kelp is growing. It kind of looks like big trees growing in the water, and there is enough growing in shallow areas for it to be convenient. Pick a bunch of that, too, and on the way back home grab ten or so pieces of wood for the furnace.
Now that we’ve gotten back to our ranch with out squishy kelp and gritty sand that gets everywhere and salty seashells, we can fire up the furnace.
Use the furnace to:
Convert all the kelp to potash
Convert all the seashells to calcium carbonate
And then we’ll have all the stuff to make glass bottles! They are made 2 at a time, so let’s make a bunch while the Furnace is nice and hot. The Furnace will burn out, on its own, after a few minutes.
With bottles in hand, along with various berries, flowers, fruits, and other random items, its’ time to get ourselves to a Dye Shop. You can find one in most Clubs. This one is in TigerTon. They look like this:
After unlocking a couple dye slots, it’s time to experiment. Once you have something you like, you can save the recipe for later instead of deleting it.
Here’s some starter recipes:
4 buckets of Dragon Blood (Dragon Tree Sap from Black Sands Biome)
or, 12 raspberries, found in Fall Forest Biome
12 blackberries, found in Mediterranean Biome.
5 Hellebore Flowers and 5 limes
Kelp is great for this! You can find Kelp in the ocean, it looks like an underwater forest.
Various shades of Blue
Bluebonnet flowers (Plains Biome) in various numbers, use at least 9. Blueberries are good when added to this, and are found in Fjord Biome. You can make a really nice pure blue with 8 blueberries.
Dandelions are great for this. 9 dandelions makes a pleasant shad, and are found in Fall Forest.
Spiderwort makes lovely purple hues! You can find that in Dark Forest, usually near Mulberry Bushes.
One last important tip:
If you dye anything enough, using whatever color, it eventually turns black. It’s a good way to use up bad dyes you made while experimenting. If you need to bleach things back to white, you can do that with kelp derived potash, also at the Dye Store.
If you ever need to know where an item can be found, the Library has a full list of all the Biomes and what grows where. It has been updated to also tell what items are good for what colors!
