Well... This is a record of me dying a secondhand BJD wig with acrylic paints. I think it turned out really well and I am super happy with the results.
Supplies: ~ secondhand (affordable) wig ~ Acrylic paint, that has been watered down ~ toothbrush ~ comb ~ water
It's been nearly a month since I put the wig on my white skinned BJD and I have not seen any dye come off on the doll. =)
** Edit ** I get a lot of questions about this method. I'm not an expert and I've only done this a couple times with mixed results. I will try to upload a FAQ video to answer some of your questions but here's some tips: ~ This method uses watered down acrylic paint. A tiny dab goes a LOOOONG way, so use sparingly and water down. ~ I find that wet hair works best, as the paint is watered down and they dry together. When I tried this on dry MLP hair it ended up feeling brittle and a bit clumpy, the wet BJD wig dried very soft and natural. ~ Avoid using hot water, as it warms the acrylic and could make it run. Run COLD water over the wig to set the acrylic and let it dry completely before washing. ~ It also helps to comb the acrylic through the wig while it's drying, you can do this a couple times to help pull the paint through the layers of hair.
That's it for now, but I'll try to add a video with more answers. Thanks for watching and GOOD LUCK!!
