How can i determine the price of a product in magento based in 2 custom options?

I have 2 options that influence the price - size and colour

I can see how you can configure 1 cutom option to add to the price but how do you do it for 2 or more?

You create a product for every possible combination e.g. Blue/Small and Blue/Large would be two seperate products
From memory this wouldn't be a simple product but a configurable product

yes but i dont want to do that as that is a lot of hassle.

I want to use custom options for all of my variants rather than create a complex product

Your other option is to create 1 custom option that includes all possible varieties of color/size

true but i need the user to be able to select one option and then another option.
Be too confusing for them to pick both at same time...

Do you think this extension will cater for it?

That seems to concern itself with dependant options, nothing to do with custom option pricing
