Knowing how to produce Concrete in Minecraft is useful because it is one of the game’s most durable and versatile blocks. Concrete blocks come in a variety of colours and cannot be burned.
Note: These instructions apply to all platforms of Minecraft.
How to Get Concrete in Minecraft
Concrete does not occur naturally, thus you must create it. Create some Concrete Powder first, then use it on a water block to make a Concrete block. Then, using a pickaxe, mine the block to obtain your Concrete.
Stack Concrete Powder blocks on top of one another to produce numerous Concrete blocks. The Concrete Power blocks will fall when you mine the Concrete with your pickaxe, and the bottom one will become Concrete. Continue mining the bottom block until you have collected all of the Concrete you require.
Required Materials for Concrete
You need the following items to craft Concrete Power:
- 4 Gravel
- 4 Sand
- 1 Dye (any color)
To turn Concrete Power into Concrete, all you need is a water source and a pickaxe to mine it with.
Red Sand cannot be used to make Concrete Powder.
How to Make Concrete Powder
In a Crafting Table, combine 4 Sand, 4 Gravel, and 1 Dye to make Concrete Powder. It makes no difference how the materials are arranged.
In most biomes, sand and gravel can be found near water. Using a Furnace, different colour dyes can be created or melted from particular objects.
How to Make White and Black Concrete in Minecraft
Use White Dye to make White Concrete Powder. You can craft White Dye using 1 Bone Meal or 1 Lily of the Valley.
Use Black Dye to make Black Concrete Powder. To craft Black Dye, use 1 Ink Sac or 1 Wither Rose.
How to Make Dyes in Minecraft
Dyes can be created by crafting or smelting specific materials. Some colours are only created by blending others:
|Black||Ink Sac or Lily of the Valley||Crafting|
|Blue||Lapis Lazuli or Cornflower||Crafting|
|Light Blue||Blue Orchid or Blue+White Dye||Crafting|
|Lime||Sea Pickle or Green+White Dye||Smelting|
|Orange||Orange Tulip or Red+Yellow Dye||Crafting|
|Pink||Pink Tulip, Peony, or Red Dye+White Dye||Crafting|
|Red||Poppy, Red Tulip, Rose Bush, or Beetroot||Crafting|
|White||Bone Meal or Lily of the Valley||Crafting|
|Yellow||Dandelion or Sunflower||Crafting|
how do you make concrete in minecraft
Build strong structures with concrete. Concrete is harder than stone, but it has a lesser blast resistance, thus your concrete constructions will be destroyed in the event of an explosion. Concrete Power can also be utilised to build bridges over bodies of water.
In Minecraft, where can I find concrete?
Concrete will not be found “in the wild” in Minecraft. It can only be obtained by making it with concrete powder and water.
In Minecraft, how do I colour concrete?
In Minecraft, you can’t dye concrete blocks, but you can create them different hues. To do so, when making concrete powder with sand and gravel, place a dye in the central square. The dyed concrete powder is then used to manufacture concrete blocks of the same hue.
