    Raccoon: Paint one of the 2-1/4 inch clay pots and one of the 2 inch doll heads Dolphin. Glue head onto body and let dry. Trace and transfer the patten for the Large Bear's body onto the clay pot. Paint tummy Cotton Ball. Paint arms Dolphin with Black Tie nails. Paint muzzle Dolphin with Black Tie lines accenting the Raccoon's mouth. Paint a Black Tie mouth. Paint eyes Cocoa Bean, then draw Black Tie stripes around the eyes. You may wish to use tiny pieces of masking tape to ensure your paint does not go into an area you have already painted. Use a foam brush to create a tail that alternates between Dolphin and Black Tie as shown in the photo. Use a liner brush to cross hatch lines of Cocoa Bean and Black Tie around the tail, paws, tummy and muzzle. Use the small saw to cut a shape similar to a piece of corn of the cob out of a wood slat. Cut this corn on the cob shape in half, then glue one to each side of the doll head to serve as ears.

    Bears: Paint the remaining 2 inch and 2-1/4 inch doll heads, as well as one of the 2-1/4 inch and 3 inch clay pots, Cocoa Bean. When dry, glue doll heads onto pots. Trace and transfer template onto each bear. (The first page of the template is for the small bear, the second page of the template is for the large bear.) If you can draw a honey jar instead of a tummy, feel free to do so! Paint muzzle, inside ears and feet Brown Sugar. Paint eyes, nose and mouth Black Tie with Cotton Ball highlights added with the liner brush. Paint the tongue Dark Scarlet. (If you painted a honey jar, paint it School Bus and use a liner brush to add the word HONEY in Black Tie.) Paint the tummy Cotton Ball and the toes Black Tie.
