Here’s How to Dye Items in BG3

To change the color of an item of clothing or armor, a jerkin for example, you’ll first need to find or purchase some dye. The first place to purchase dye is in the Emerald Grove area from a shopkeeper called Arron.

As you progress through the game you’ll discover other dyes, but Arron has a decent selection to start you off. You’ll need one pot of dye for each clothing item, and once you’ve dyed an item the dye pot is used up. Fortunately, Aaron sells dye in batches.
