How Do You Dye A Wig Using Acrylic Paint?
Dyeing wigs can be an expensive process, but can also be really scary if it’s your first time. But there’s a simple and inexpensive way to do it and all it takes is a trip to the art store! • Buy some acrylic paint from your local art store. It’ll likely set you back $7/8 but 1 bottle goes a long way. • Half fill a mixing bowl (or any other small plastic container – just make sure you don’t mind it getting stained and wrecked) with lukewarm water. • Add a small amount of the acrylic paint and mix. • Keep adding and mixing until you get a mixture that looks similar to latex that’s been melted. Add more water if you need to. • Using a tint brush, paint the solution onto your wig, a section at a time. Remember to comb the hair after every 2Nd or 3rd stroke with a fine tooth comb to stop the strands becoming clumped together. • Continue till you’ve covered the entire wig and leave to dry for 2-3 hours. Rinse with cold water until the water runs clear.
