I just completed one of Georges favorite black bear poises, half mount, open mouth, paws out (reaching for a garbage can no doubt). But I want to see if anyone has attempted to even up the white-V patch on the chest. It is fully developed on one side and just 2 little chunks on the other side. This is the way it was when it came in. Has anyone played hairdresser and whitened a strip black bear fur with the whitening creme or is it best to leave it alone? Thoughts?

Most of the time we just leave the "hair color" alone as this is about as natural as you can get. We have dabbled a bit on evening out the sides for a "V" or other design. At times, we have even changed the color of the entire bear! But that was a major pain however, it turned out nice. Just use simple hair coloration changes as it is used with people. Yes it works!
