Instructions for the bears:
1. First base coat your bear with white paint and let it dry. It does not matter if some small spots are missed. The paint is to lighten the bears up so the paper will look more brilliant when applied.
2. Then tear the pre-painted deli papers into small pieces.
3. Use the decoupage glue to adhere the papers onto the bears. Brush the glue onto the bear and place the paper smoothly on the wet glue. Then brush glue over the paper to seal it. The decoupage glue may look milky at the beginning but will usually dry clear.
4. Continue until the bear is completely covered. If you hit spots that are tight, such as corners or around small areas, you can cut a couple of slits into the paper so it will lay more flat and not buckle up.
