Make a polymer clay bear.
The Simple Bear is the basis for all the other bears in the book. He is shown here with two friends. The larger blue bear has a brown snout and a very big nose. He also has little brown matching pads on his paws, which are created by squashing tiny flattened balls of brown clay into place. He has larger ears and his eyes are closer together. The little pink bear has a tiny, round nose made from deep pink clay. Her ears have been placed further down and she holds a blanket made from flattened white clay. The claws were created using a cocktail stick to make the indentations.
