Orange Dye is one of the many diverse colors available in Minecraft. Players can use dyes to change the color of blocks, decorations, and even several mobs. Orange Dye is one of the more complex dyes in Minecraft, meaning it can require more than a single ingredient to create, depending on what items are used. While most players may have a rough idea of how this dye can be made, knowing where to find the materials to craft it may be somewhat tricky. Read further to learn where and how to get Orange Dye in Minecraft.
How to Get Orange Dye in Minecraft
To obtain Orange Dye in Minecraft requires combining Red and Yellow Dyes in the in-game crafting menu. Conversely, players who are able to find the slightly rare Orange Tulip can craft Orange Dye directly. If players cannot acquire the necessary ingredients, they can trade with a Wandering Trader, who can sell 3 Orange Dye for one Emerald.
Players can craft Red Dye by using the following flowers: Poppy, Red Tulip, and Rose Bush. Beetroots are also another method to make Red Dye and is actually a great way to mass-produce it (via farming). Yellow Dye is crafted from Dandelions or Sunflowers. While most flowers will spawn across various biomes, such as Forests or Plains, the best place to find flowers is in the Flower Forest biome in Minecraft. This biome is where the Orange Tulip will spawn more commonly.
If these biomes still don’t have the needed ingredients, then trading with a Wandering Trader for Orange Dye is the next best option. Players shouldn’t have to worry too much about actively looking for Wandering Traders. In most cases, these traders will often find players on their own, especially when the player has established a place to live (with a bed). While Emeralds are quite a sparse resource in Minecraft, Villagers will happily haggle with players a variety of items in exchange for Emeralds.
