dying fur/coloring ?

  1. I have a odd request from a client for a white, black bear, any dyes/colors /procedures out there to make this happen ?
     
  2. I did a little experimenting with this earlier this summer. Start with a color phase bear...the lighter the better...blonde works best since you have the least distance to go. Whiten with peroxide hair bleach...might need to do more than once...drying throughly between applications. Try not to get the skin moist and definitely use a professional tan. You might have to add blueing to it if it turns brassy (you know the stuff they add to mature ladies white hair?). Definitely practice on some scraps if you have any available.
