1. After you have made a paper pulp for sculpting, prepare your desktop.
2. Depending on the amount of paper pulp you have created, or the desired bear size, take a paper pulp and make a ball out of it for the bear's head. Be sure to leave enough paper pulp for the rest of the pieces.
3. Take a quantity of paper pulp, a larger drop for the bear's body, and make an oval shape out of it.
Make 4 round rolls at each end for the bear's hands.
5. Make 2 balls, crush them, so that 2 flat circles are formed for the feet of the bear.
6. Make a small oval from the paper pulp and add to the bottom of the ball (head) by tightening and spreading the paper pulp.
7. Form an inverted triangle in the center of the ellipse for the bear's nose, through clicks.
8. Add a little paper pulp on both sides of the ball-shaped ellipse to fill the sockets and create a more round shape.
9. Above the ellipse on the ball, make 2 depressions through clicks for the bear's eyes.
10. Make 2 small triangles for the bear's ears.
11. Attach each ear to the bear's head by tightening and spreading the paper pulp.
12. Connect the bear's head and body by tightening the two parts and spreading the paper pulp at all connection points.
13. Add a little paper pulp at the bottom of the body, instead of connecting with the foot. Connect the foot and body by tightening and applying the paper pulp.
14. Repeat the steps you did in step 13 with the other foot of the bear.
15. Connect the hand with the bear's body by tightening and spreading the paper pulp at all connection points.
16. Connect the other hand with the body of the bear as you did in step 15. Note that the hand can be connected in different positions.
17. When finishing the work on the sculpture, let it dry. The drying time of the sculpture ranges from one day to a week, depending on the weather and the density of the paper pulp in the finished sculpture.
18. It is recommended to paint the finished sculpture in gouache paints. The painted paper pulp sculpture can be covered with an additional layer of glue to strengthen it.
