    How do you animate two layers together, but have one stay behind the other please?

      I have two layers that need to be on different levels: an arm and an arm-outline. Using the puppet tool, when the arm moves, I only want the outline visible when the arm isn't overlapping with the body. So the outline layer needs to be behind the body layer.

       

      If I want the outline to be animated with the arm, I could merge the arm and outline, but then the outline is above the body.

       

      So then how do I keep the arm and outline animated together for arm movements, while keeping them on separate layers please?
