How to lighten a wig by Rirukuo How to lighten a wig by Rirukuo
This is a tutorial for lightening the color of a wig. It's only semi permanent, so if you wash your wig some of the color are going to wash out. But it looks great though!! xD And I haven't heard of anyone else that has been able to lighten the color of a wig, so this is revolutionary !! haha, just kidding! I hope you find it useful. Thans for viewing : 3

I found a few spelling mistakes in here, but apart from that, I found this really, really cool!

I know, and I'm sorry about that! Photoshop doesn't offer spell-check, and I'm a bit dependent on that.. English isn't my first language and I type really fast and sloppy.. xD But Thank you so much!

Hello, how many markers did you use for this? I'm thinking that this could be the best solution to a wig I need, although they don't sell posca markers where I live so I would need to order it online.

I heard that you can put lemon juice in a wig and leave it out in the sun for a week and it will get lighter. Does that work too?

I buy it locally in norway, but you could try hobby stores or staples. Or you can look for them on ebay or amazon. Sorry for the late reply.

One question, does the color fall off? I'm kinda aware of that issue because I used black sharpie on one of my wigs before and my hands wre all black.

I have a question!
I'm about to light my first wig with a Posca pen, do I just brush it through or do I was it or anything afterwards? :3

SO sorry for the late reply! Do not wash it, then the color will wash out too! But you can brush it and use hairspray and whatever you want, other than liquids^^

Is there anything i could use to set the marker into the wig like rubbing alcohol like how it sets with sharpie or something of the like?

I don't think so, though..  Since the markers aren't alcohol based it might just ruin it. But please tell me if you ever try it out!:3

Im sorry for butting in here but couldn't you use a white sharpie (or Promarker if you are outside of the US, then sharpies can be hard to find) to get the same effect? :> They are alcohol based si they should set? I think :D

i want to use light blue on a dark blue wig. I already tried bleach and it didnt work on my wig, and i feel like the sharpie wont be strong enough  since i want to use something opaque.

it definitely doesn't have to be that particular brand!! i've tried this before with Elmer's paint markers, which I think were mentioned below, and it worked just fine!

I'll just copy and paste from a webpage about posca:

Contains Non Toxic Water Base Paint. Mark on metal, wood, glass, plastic, plaster, canvas and more. Excellent for signs exposed to the weather. Great for temporarily marking up glass windows.


Popular with surfboard painters.

Used extensively by Auto Dealers to mark windows with advertisements. Also used by auto body shop estimators to map out repairs on vehicles.

Markers are removable from non porous, sealed surfaces like glass, car bodies, chalkboards.

Opaque, water based acrylic paint is non toxic and acid free. Odorless, lightfast, Xylene free, lead free and waterproof when dry. Will bond permanently to wood, clay pots, poster board, plaster and other porous materials.


In Norway they are really expensive, sadly : / I don't know how the prices are in other countries though, sorry.
