Exclamation Wig Coloring

I bought a blonde wig [x] and I want to Sharpie dye it with 70% rubbing alcohol. The problem is, I need to color different sections of hair, not just dunk the whole thing into a tub. Any suggestions on what I can do to prevent two colors from merging together? This and this is what I am basing it off of.

You basically need to do the spray bottle method to apply the dye. You want to section off the are you dyeing that one colour and cover the rest of the wig as your go.

You could also check out this wig:
There's this rainbow colored wig from Arda:

I think maybe this one might be too long, unless thats ok with you.

They do have another one, but that one is not heat resistant, but usually Arda's wigs are. But if you were just going to style it using hairspray then you're fine.
Hopefully this helps somehow
