3. While the paint is still wet, stick the pieces of the arctic animal’s face to the paint in desired spots. Be careful not to smudge the paint in the process. (If you’ve waited too long and the paint has dried you can always glue them down later instead).

4. Once the paint has dried draw on any additional details. This might include legs to the owl, a mouth/face to the bear or fox if desired, etc…
