Black Variants represents a set of decorative blocks added by HEXCraft which are either crafted by the default recipes or are obtained using the Black Hexorium Dye. All blocks in a single variant allow for all 18 standard Energized Hexorium colors (other than Glowing Hexorium Glass which has 17 colors, and Hexorium-Coated Stone and Tempered Hexorium Glass which are colorless).
NOTE: Black variants do not have the prefix "Black", as they are the default crafted block variant.

All Black Variants are obtained either using the default crafting recipes in HEXCraft (without using any dyes) or by using the Black Hexorium Dye in some way, either through crafting or in-world dyeing.
Dyed decorative blocks may be crafted either by using a dye in a shapeless recipe with the blocks which should be dyed.
A Decorative Block +
Decorative blocks already placed in the world may be dyed without breaking them. Simply use the dye on the block. Note that this completely swaps the block with the new one and may not be used on blocks which already form a multiblock structure.
Black Variants are simply all decorative Hexorium blocks either created without any changes done to them or dyed using Black Hexorium Dye in order to have a white surface color. Hexorium seems to assume a dark sheen when used in normal situations, so further dyeing is generally not necessary unless the blocks were previously in a different color. The process of how the dye works is described on the Hexorium Dyes page.
