I have a large resin bear. He has been knocked over and hole has appeared in his hind qtrs. No pieces left as they where discarded I or lost in house move. How can I fix this and make it look like fur.

    First you need a backing on the inside of the hole for any repair. Cut a disk out of some thin cardboard slightly larger than the hole. Use a long nail and pierce the nail though the center of the disk leaving the nail in. Fold the disk slightly and force it gently in the hole with the nail head down. Use some liquid super glue and saturate the disk. Pull up on the nail to glue the disk to the inside of the hole. Hold it tight for the glue to dry. Then you can either push the nail inside or pull it out. Now you can use some auto body filler or two part epoxy putty to cover the hole. Let it dry completely. Sand it smooth with the surface and drill you new hole.

    If the hole is irregular fill the cavity with aluminum foil below the surface. Then fill the hole with auto body filler. As the filler hardens it goes into a rubbery stage. That is when you carve it and texture it to look like fur. You will need to experiment with different objects to mimic the fur texture. ou have quite a bit of time before it starts to harden solid. Once hardened you can use craft paint to match the colors.

    Cut out a "patch" from a milk jug or water/pop bottle. Glue it in place with a strong glue like Super Glue or Gorilla Glue. Then paint it to match the bear.

    Patch with spackling if it is resin. While it is still damp use a toothbrush or small toothed comb to make marks like fur then match paint to the existing color. Cover with a few coats of matte finish polyurethane in spray or brush on.
