Dyeing

From Stardew Valley Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Dyeing is the process of changing the color of clothing. Dyeing can be done in two ways, both of which are available at Emily's house: by using the dye pots and by using the sewing machine. Both are unlocked during a cutscene with Emily after obtaining at least 1 Cloth.

Dye Pots

The Dye Pots interface

You can change the color of clothing, using the Dye Pots to the right of the sewing machine in Emily's house. You must be wearing the item(s) you wish to dye (each item will be dyed separately at no extra cost).

To create a dye you have to interact with the pots and have an item in your inventory representing each color dye pot (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple). Items in your inventory will have a a color dot in the bottom left that corresponds with the color pot that they belong to. Hovering over each pot will also show the available items in your inventory for that color.

Once you have each pot filled, a dye bottle will light up in the menu. Upon clicking the dye bottle button, a menu will pop up with color sliders (similar to the character creation menu) that allow you to choose any color for the item(s) of clothing being dyed. The items in the dye pots will be consumed.

Shown below are complete lists of all items that dye pots will accept.

Sewing Machine

The Sewing Machine interface

You can also use the sewing machine for a basic color change by placing the clothing item in the feed at the lower left of the sewing machine and the item to use as dye is placed on the spool at the upper right. The item on the spool is consumed in the process. There is a preview of the changed item in the sewing machine menu.

Using a Prismatic Shard or Rainbow Shell to dye clothing will open a menu where you can choose any color using slider buttons.

When you dye using the sewing machine you get a combination of the item's current color and the item you use. For example, a dark green shirt dyed with a white item will become lighter green. A blue shirt dyed with a red item will become a shade of purple. A blue shirt dyed with a yellow item will become a shade of green, etc.

Dye Strength

Base dye strength is 25%, "Medium" dye strength is 50%, and "Strong" dye strength is 100%. To achieve full color saturation, it may be necessary to dye the clothing up to 4 times.

Shown below is a comparison of the effect of dye strength on a white shirt. Fire Quartz has a normal dye strength, Eggplant Parmesan has a medium dye strength, and Cranberries have a strong dye strength.
