Tutorial - Wig Dyeing by KuragariSensei Tutorial - Wig Dyeing by KuragariSensei
Second tutorial~

A friend of mine, :iconazurimi:, knew I was going to dye one of my wig and wanted to know how I would proceed. So I thought... Why not make a tutorial about it ? XD
It was my first time dyeing a wig ever O.O
I was so scared to ruin it >.<!!! But it came out great!
I didn't put any picture of myself with it caaauussse... it's still drying up a bit XD
But I'll have pictures soon enough :iconshaplz:

So anyway... I hope you enjoyed it and if you have any question you can ask! ^^

Sorry for the messy workshop XD
Also, if you're not doing it outside, you may want to protect the surrounding surfaces around like I did with that sheet XD

**EDIT** WIP of Kise from Kuroko no Basket with the wig [link] / [link]
Tutorial and dye made by me~
I don't own Kuroko no Basket (even if you can't tell yet that I cosplayed Kise)

oh god thank you so much
So I've seen this tutorial a lot, and a lot of people have really good results. I'm just having issues. I've got 70% rubbing alcohol, FW acrylic ink in burnt umber, and a long orange wig I'm trying to get a more rusty color. I'll let the wig dry lying down in my tub for 24 hours, turning it around and spreading out the hair to make sure it all dries, but as soon as the water hits it it ALWAYS rinses out. The color change has been so slight even after 2 bottles it's barely noticeable, and not anywhere close to where I need it to be. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong, since I use the right alcohol, the right ink, the right ratio, and cold as ice water to rinse. And as soon as I start to squeeze the water out of the wig so it can dry, there's a waterfall of brown. Has anyone else had this issue? Have they found a way around it?

I had a bit of an issue with the color rubbing off after a bit of time. But I use some hair spray and a color sealer in spray to fix it. But it's the first time that I hear that the color rinse off immediately though.... 
Like I said, it'll stain it slightly, but it's very little when you figure how many dyes it has gone through. I'm going to let it set for 2 days, see if that helps. About all else I use on it is some wig detangler to help when I comb it out after rinsing, but it's very little added moisture so I don't know how that also makes all the color wash out when I rinse again. I'm starting to think it's just the wig being a butt.

Ahaha xD
I already tried to dye an old one... I think that the fibers were too damaged and it was really too old... It didn't came out well so I just threw it away xD

Can this also work on a brown wig to black
And since I'm only using 1 dye color how much dye and rubbing alcohol should I use ( in measurements please )
KuragariSensei Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2013
It could yeah ^^
Like I said just before the mix I used it's 8 full squeezes of ink for 1 cup of alcohol
