Mix 2 “I” balls of flesh Hearty Clay and 2
“F” balls of brown Hearty Clay to make a lighter brown for the bear. Mix
clay together well.
Measure out an “I” ball of the light brown
clay. Shape clay into a triangular shape about 1” high for the body.
Measure out 2 “G” balls of light brown clay for the legs. Shape into
teardrops and place below the body. Push the wide ends up a little to
look like feet.
Measure out an “H” ball of light brown clay
for the head. Roll into a ball and attach to the top of the triangular
body. Use a mini craft stick and/or tacky glue if necessary.
Measure out 2 “D” balls of light brown clay
for the ears. Attach to either side of the top of the head. Measure out
a “C” ball of white clay for the muzzle. Flatten ball a little then
place on the lower half of the bear’s head.
Measure out an “A” ball of black Hearty
Clay. Divide in half. Take one half and roll into a ball for the nose.
Place on top of the muzzle. Take the remaining piece and divide in half
again. Roll each piece into a tiny ball for the eyes. Place on the face
above the muzzle.
Measure out a “G” ball of yellow Hearty
Clay. Flatten ball and shape into a piece about 1” x 1½”.
Fold ends to the middle to form the “chip bag”. Use the Hearty clay tool
edge to make tiny marks on either end of the bag for detailing. Place
the bag onto the bear’s body. Measure out a “C” ball of red Hearty Clay.
Roll clay into a short log. Cut off ends and shape into a small “C” to
place on the bag. Attach to the front of the bag.
Measure out 2 “E” balls of the light brown
clay. Shape each into teardrops about ½”
long for the arms. Slightly curve each arm. Place one arm reaching into
the bag. Place the other arm over the mouth as if eating. Let bear dry.
Glue the back of the bear to the wooden clothespin. Clip to the opened
bags of snacks to keep snacks fresh.
