Dye additives are high level General Alchemy recipes. They are used to add descriptors to dyes such as glimmering, radiant, glowing, etc. A cobalt blue dye plus a glittering dye additive will make a glittering cobalt blue dye. Dye additives can be used with dyer's tent dyes and cobbling dyes by taking the purchased dye to the clerk and using the ORDER BOTTLE command. The additive can then be poured into the substituted dye.
