Yes, if you follow the rule of thumb that you can only dye clothes darker.
For example, if you dye yellow fabric using a blue dye, you create a shade of green. In contrast, if you dye blue fabric using a yellow dye, the blue will remain almost unchanged because the much lighter yellow will be absorbed into the blue. This is because textile dyes are not opaque colours like gloss or wall paints, but transparent colours similar to watercolour paint.
It is therefore possible to dye your item a different colour when following the “dark on light” rule of thumb, although the outcome is always slightly surprising. Our colour mixer gives you an idea of the possible colour results.
