Help Dying A Wig Blonde

I want to dye a mid back white wig blonde. The white wig isn't a light platinum blonde, it's literally pure white. Like milk white. However I want to dye it a blonde shade. In between, this blonde, and this blonde. I'm afraid of using a yellow sharpie marker dye for the wig in fear it will becomeTHIS. Any ideas? (It's a bit too late for me to buy a blonde wig now. Just saying.)

sounds about right, but i mostly work in putting all the main color in there and then i squee in the 2nd, i really just kinda 'eyeball it' and then practice on a strip of the wig.

im pretty sure you'll be needing quite a bit of sharpies (4-5 maybe?) if it's longer

It's easier to get the right colours with acrylic ink/paint mixed with isopropyl alcohol (the FW ink method is in here somewhere, probably stickied). Especially as you can get nice earthy tones such as yellow ochre, burnt umber and burnt sienna, all colours I highly recommend using for natural tones.
