How to Apply Dyes to Armor?
The first thing that you need to know is that dyes in The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine can only be applied to Witcher Gear Sets and not ordinary pieces of armor. In order to apply a dye, you simply need to select a dye in the Armor Tab, preview it to see how it looks, and then confirm your selection.
