Exclamation Wig dying help!!

Okay so I'm dying a wig I've had for some odd years rainbow for a rainbow dash costume. My probleme is... I don't know which sharpie method to do, hand dye or spray. I'm leaning towards spraying because it's less time consuming but my issue is which will bleed less? Or is there something I can do to stop the bleeding?

The spray method require that to cover up the rest of the wig as you work on each section. You need that section to dry completely before moving one then covering again the work you did.

Hand colouring takes more time but you get a true shade of the dye you make up instead and you colour set faster.

Alternately, you could probably just get wefts in the colors you need and sew/glue them into a base wig.
