That's alright thanks!

I assume you Sharpie dyed it? And it didn't mess with the curls or anything?

I actually just put in in a bath of acrylic Ink and rubbing alcohol for 5 or so minutes, then let it dry and washed out the excess. It didn’t mess with the curls at all.

This is going to be no help what so ever (apologies in advance):
+Used all of the acrylic bottle (It was about 4-6oz)
+Mixed in with as much alcohol it took to submerge the wig

whoa so much alcohol? haha and here my friend (who also did the alcohol technique but spray method) told me to only use only a small amount as much as possible :lmao: wahhh confusing! but lemme ask, did the color last long? you mentioned it didn't harm the curls. was it still soft or did it harden? >.<

and since merida's wig is massive, how bottles did you use? last, how long did you submerge the wig? sorry for asking too much :meow:

No problem, questions are good. ^_^
It was soft; rinsed out the excess dye after it dried.
I only used about 25oz (one bottle) and lightly kept pressing the wig down so that the color would shift.
Just to be safe you should probably do the ink to alcohol ratio that your friend mentioned (it will probably turn out better and it will be more predictable).
