    Why an enchanting table?  I think an anvil should be used instead.

    @William Miller, Because an Enchanting table is magic. Endless possibilities about it. The enchanted particles can be merged with Dyes. Apparently, you can extract dyes into tint colors using a magic source. Both Hammer and Anvil are both just physical. It would make stains on the sword, bypassing the enchanted particles. Magic particles can convert a regular dye to a rune dye, and the rune dyes can change a enchanted particles' color. Science of magic.

    By that logic, anvils shouldn't be used to combine two items, because it doesn't make sense to pound one sword into another to make it more powerful.

    I think we can take advantage of the Smithing Table for this.  Currently its only use is to upgrade Diamond to Netherite, which doesn't make a lick of sense anyway.  Maybe create another item for an enchantment specific dye?  Off the top of my head:

    Glowstone Dust + Dye
    Maybe call it something like Pixie Dust.  Could also be used the same way as redstone but for artistic patterns, like sidewalk chalk.

    Enchanting Table: Book + Dye
    Replace the lapis on an enchantment table with a dye and create some kind of Tome of Color.  Maybe it comes with actual enchants, maybe all it does is recolor the enchant effect.

    Enchanting Table: Replace Lapis with Dye
    Cutting out the middleman as it were.  Instead of requiring lapis as the magical element, require dye.
