Using Custom Cursors

I have some animation on a JPanel, and I also have a custom cursor that I built like this:
Toolkit tk = Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit();
target = tk.getImage("target.jpg");
sights = new JButton();
sights.setCursor(tk.createCustomCursor(target,new Point(0,0),"cursor"));

Now my problem comes in when I try to add it to the JPanel. It does not show up at all. I just have the normal mouse cursor. If I add it to the Container before I add the JPanel, I only get the cursor and not the JPanel. If I add the cursor after I add the JPanel, I get only the JPanel. I need to have the animation
and the custom cursor on the same JPanel. If anyone can help me with this, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!!!
