Sculpt a cone form.
Slightly bend down the tip of the cone to form the head of the bear.

Score each piece. Draw # hashtag lines on the two areas that will be joined together.
Apply slip on top of the lines and attach the two pieces of clay together.
Slightly bend up the ends of the cylinders to form the bear’s feet. The feet can be arranged in the sitting or standing position.

Score and slip the spheres onto the bear’s body.
Allow the clay to dry 24 hours before painting.
