How to dye wefts using the FW ink method

Is there a wig that you need for an upcoming cosplay in a color that you just can’t seem to find anywhere? It’s okay, I have your solution! Just find a blond or white wig in the right style that you’re looking for, and dye it!

There are several methods that I know of for dyeing a wig. The first is the sharpie method, where you harvest the ink from several sharpies and dye your wig with it. The second is  the FW ink method, where you use FW ink, which is an acrylic ink, and mix it with alcohol and use that to dye the wig. The last method is using Katie Blair’s wig dye, which is easy and premade for you, but can be expensive if you’re dyeing a very long or thick wig.  I prefer the FW ink method.

Later on I’ll make a tutorial on how to dye a wig using this method, since it is slightly different than doing it with wefts.
