Being quite unhappy with the unbearable notch in the hump of the bear from "Torak" (Schleich Bayala) I decided to customise the figure. Since the hump is very high I decided to cut off some of it and then carve the fur texture into it with a dremel tool bearing a 1.5 mm drill. In order to repaint the customised area I mixed acrylics to match the original colour as much as possible and then drybrushed with a lighter coloured mix over it.
So this is the result and finally I can enjoy the figure. The original shoulder height of 79 mm has now decreased to 77 mm and the change is still quite subtle.
