Cat Pattern

Adobe Acrobat

  1. Wash and dry the cups. Avoid touching the areas to be painted.
  2. To make the cat cup, trace a cat pattern onto the tracing paper. Cut out the pattern slightly beyond the drawn lines. Tape the traced shape to the inside of the cup, placing it low on the cup so the weight of the eyes does not tip the cup. Paint the cat black; let dry.
  3. Using the photograph as a guide, paint the white nose, mouth, and whiskers. Mix a drop of green and yellow paints. Paint long ovals on the front sides of two frosted clear marbles; let dry. Paint smaller black ovals inside the green ones; let dry. Glue the eyes in place; let dry.
