Wig dyeing: Streaking a white wig black
I'm currnetly working on cosplaying Frankie Stein from Monster High in her Scarily Ever After costume and I've hit a little snag with the wig.



As you can see her hair is heavily streaked with black which made me think extensions sewn in might not be the best of ideas.
I've hand streaked a wig before but the colour contrast wasn't so stark and I'm scared the black may bleed on to the white.
Is there anyway to avoid this/stop it happening? I'm aware it may take a while to get the streaks truly black but I'm more than willing to keep at it ^^

Any advice or tips would be super helpful!

If you use the sharpie (or lesterate (however it's spelt) marker technique, you should have complete control on what you mark black and what remains white. It's an expensive and time consuming process though. I've not used the technique myself as of yet, but will be doing so in the near future.

Rubbing alcohol and sharpies But I am not sure if it will go THAT black though D:

Give it a test though
