I extruded three different colours of clay - white, dolphin gray and a darker gray - and then applied each strand to a white clay base. Quite time consuming. Next time, I will experiment with creating more of a distinct fringe for the eyes and the muzzle, which should help define the face more.
With some scrap clay, I made the body for the larger dog and repeated the process as I had lots of clay strands left. The small dog is 2.5cm tall, and the large dog is 5cm tall. I'm keen to try more breeds of dog, and will work on a labrador next. A dalmation would also be quite distinctive, and I just have to try a Schnauzer!
