Didn't know coloring synthetics was possible? It is! In this video Doc will show you how to create permanent color for your synthetics, and how to do it in a neato galaxy pattern!

For this tutorial you will need:

  • Alcohol Ink (We used Tim Holtz brand available at craft stores in the stamping section)
  • Synthetic hair piece
  • Isopropyl Alcohol
  • Spray Bottle(s)
  • Gloves
  • Garbage Bags (or something to cover your work space to protect from stains)
  • Comb
  • Blow Dryer
  • Clips (for sectioning)

Ready to get your colors going? follow along in the video!

Step 1: Mix and Test

Cover work space with garbage bags and put on gloves. Put a small amount of isopropyl alcohol into a spray bottle. Add drops of alcohol ink. Spray on white paper to test color strength.

Step 2: Section

Separate the lowest layer. Add a very small amount of water for control if needed.

Step 3: Spray

Spray on the color pattern. Make sure not to touch areas or it will leave marks. Blow dry on low heat until ink is dry.

Step 4: Repeat

Pull down the next section and repeat. Repeat the process until all layers are coated. Let dry and then it's ready to wear!
