Required Materials to make Gray Concrete Powder

In Minecraft, these are the materials you can use to craft gray concrete powder:

  • 4 Sand
  • 4 Gravel
  • 1 Gray Dye

TIP: In many versions of Minecraft, you can use red sand instead of sand to craft gray concrete powder (Note: you still can not craft gray concrete powder with red sand in PC/Mac).

How to craft Gray Concrete Powder in Survival Mode

1. Open the Crafting Menu

First, open your crafting table so that you have the 3×3 crafting grid that looks like this:

2. Add Items to make Gray Concrete Powder

In the crafting menu, you should see a crafting area that is made up of a 3×3 crafting grid. To make gray concrete powder, place 4 sand, 4 gravel, and 1 gray dye in the 3×3 crafting grid.

When making gray concrete powder, it is important that the sand, gravel and gray dye are placed in the exact pattern as the image below. In the first row, there should be 1 gravel in the first box, 1 sand in the second box, and 1 gravel in the third box. In the second row, there should be 1 sand in the first box, 1 gray dye in the second box, and 1 sand in the third box. In the third row, there should be 1 gravel in the first box, 1 sand in the second box, and 1 gravel in the third box. This is the Minecraft crafting recipe for gray concrete powder.

Now that you have filled the crafting area with the correct pattern, the gray concrete powder will appear in the box to the right.

3. Move the Gray Concrete Powder to Inventory

Once you have crafted gray concrete powder, you need to move the new item to your inventory.

Congratulations, you have made gray concrete powder in Minecraft!
