Light blond wig dye?

Hi, I can't find a light blonde wig in the style I want, so I decided to dye a white one with FW ink. The problem is what shade of yellow should be used. I think I should use a tiny bit of flesh tone in it so it's not so platnum.

Any idea what yellow shade will work?

Her hair colour is more cream then yellow. Cream is a mix of all shade with the yellow being the strongest but to get that muted brown tone you need red and blue. You will probably have to mix a custom shade yourself. Raw Sienna maybe a what to go thinned out as a base shade.

Colour wise she a Platimun Blonde shade from Arda if you can't quite nail it.

I have this problem too! I found out there are banana yellow sharpies for sharpie dying...but if you want to buy them individually they only come in ultra fine. I'm not sure how to get the ink out of those, or how many I would need.

Can you dilute FW ink? Could you dilute the yellow a bit and add some of the brown?

The ultra fin makers are made in a similar fashion you need to bread the tip off to get to the ink well.
