To make the dye, you will need cactus leaves, lapis lazuli, and a cactus green dye.

Cactus: The cactus is a plant that grows in the desert and can be found in many places worldwide. The cactus has different colors, such as red, yellow, green, white, and purple. The green color is what we need to make our cyan dye.


Lapis Lazuli: This mineral is used to make turquoise and lapis lazuli dyes. It can be purchased at most craft stores or online retailers. You will need your pickaxe to get lapis lazuli. The gemstone lapis lazuli can also make dye.

Cactus Green Dye: This dye is made from green plants that grow wild in the desert. The plants are dried and ground into a powder before adding water to it and mixing it with a binder such as gum arabic or starch paste. You can make a cactus with green dye using a cactus and a furnace. The smelting of cactus blocks in Minecraft will give you green dye.
