*Tips:

1. Use tacky glue at tips of toothpicks before inserting into clay.
2. Keep all clay in airtight zip lock bags so clay does not dry out.
3. Use water to smooth clay before it dries.
4. Use hand lotion (on hands) so clay does not stick to hands.

Step-by-step Instructions:

1. Head- form a 7/8-inch white ball of clay into a 1-1/4-inch diameter circle about 1/4-inch thick. Insert two 4mm "E" beads into center of face. Use pointed tip of clay tool to press three lines above each eye (eyelashes).
 

2. Muzzle- form a 7/16-inch white ball of clay into a 1/8-inch thick oval shape. Secure (widthwise) to front center of face under eyes. Press a line down center of muzzle and three dots on each side of the line.
 

3. Nose- mix one unit of Orchid Pink color clay using the color chart and color scale. Form a 3/16-inch orchid pink ball of clay into a small slightly rounded triangle shape. Secure to top centerline of muzzle.
 

4. Mouth- form a 1/8-inch dk. Brown ball of clay into a small rounded triangle shape. Secure to lower centerline on muzzle (line up one pointed end of mouth with line on muzzle). Press a small line down center of mouth.

6. Inner ears- form two 5/16-inch orchid pink balls of clay into flat teardrops about 1/16-inch thick (inner ears should be smaller and fit in the outer ears). Secure each inner ear evenly into centers of each outer ear. Press a line (lengthwise) down center of each inner ear. Insert two 1/2-inch toothpicks into top of head about 1/2-inch apart, leaving 1/4-inch of each toothpick extended out. Secure base of small ends of each ear to top of head.
