Next insert the paper clip so that it is nice and snug in the clay. Press down and smooth the clay around the clip

Now the fun part! There is no wrong or right way use your imagination and make some ears, eyes, pupils, a nose and muzzle (I forgot to include the puppy tongue in this picture)

Step 5: Bake

All that's left to do is bake it. I baked it for an hour at 250 degrees.
