|Pink dye, which is obtainable from Betty in Port Sarim for 20 coins after a player completes The Hand in the Sand.||A members-only item. The dye is initially used in The Hand in the Sand to make a truth serum. It is made by using redberries and white berries on bottled water.|

Capes can be dyed to another colour using dyes. Dyeing a cape gives you 2.5 crafting experience. To make dye, a player must bring ingredients and 5 coins to Aggie in Draynor Village or Ali the Dyer in Pollnivneach, and the player will receive dye. Note that black and pink dyes are members only.
