Do you remember cute little Percy, the bear with one arm?
This is what I said at the time As for his restoration, I will give him a new arm, but I'm not going to try to match it exactly, it will be a 'false arm'.
Well I tried that and didn't like the result. The new arm is not too bad a match in size and shape, although it does need to be a bit chunkier. The whole 'make it look obvious' didn't work. Then my brain clicked into gear (it rests a lot these days :). I could dye the material and make it a closer match to his fur. A dish, a few teabags and coffee granules and I have nearly got the colour I want.
I'm just waiting for it to dry then I can set to work making a better matching arm for Percy.
He may have a slight aroma of coffee about him. :)
