Minecraft has a ton of features that makes it an exciting game for game lovers. One of the best things about this game is the dimensionality. It allows one to use the custom player skins. If you are a starter, you will find yourself using the default skins to a more considerable degree. If we are honest enough, sometimes repetition can be monotonous, and we do not want to let go of our games.
On the other hand, using different skins can boost your gaming mood, especially if uniqueness is something that cheers you up all the time. In Minecraft Windows 10, you can choose your character out of the many skins packs on the homepage or come up with your personalized skin to uniquely identify your player in the game.
In this article today, I will walk you through the two ways you can create your custom player skins and use the skins in the game.
How to create your custom player skins
1. Creating your custom skin from scratch
Creating your custom skin is where Minecraft and your crafting goals chip in. The feeling of creating your personalized skin is pretty fulfilling in a way. So, without further ado, let us take a look at how you can create your own Minecraft windows ten custom skins quick and easy with the following simple steps;
On your favorite web browser, navigate to minecraftskins.com/skin-editor/. The skin editor in minecraftskins is a fantastic editor to go for to accomplish your skin creation.
From the color wheel, click on your color of interest. Apply the paint to the squares on the player model by clicking on each square you wish to have that specific color.
In the case of applying color to an unwanted square, you can use the eraser by clicking on the eraser button on the top left to clean up.
Click a blank space on the right of the model to rotate it.

2. Downloading a premade skin
Downloading a premade skin is an alternative method to get you a unique player without creating it from scratch, which can be time-consuming to a great extent. There are numerous sites you can visit to download existing skins and those crafted by other Minecraft lovers.

On your browser, visit minecraftskins.com and select a random skin of your choice.
