How Dye Flowers work in Horizon Forbidden West.

The dyeing mechanic within Horizon Forbidden West can be confusing as players are never directly told how the dyeing system works. Essentially, players collect dye flowers and certain dye combinations to dye their different armor sets. The thing is, the process is a bit more complicated than that.
