First I rolled out a line of white, and rolled out two balls of using all the colors of brown, to make a base to build on.

I bent a two inch wire into an U, put it on the base, and covered it with chunk of white pressed to about this shape:

With toothpicks I began to pick at the clay and poke at it till it looked like fur.

I rolled out 2 black balls for the eyes, a pinch bigger ball for his nose, and a larger ball for the mouth. I flattened the mouth ball and shaped it into a mouth shape, with a connector piece for the nose. With a toothpick I poked two nose holes in the top of the nose and attached it to the mouth connector. A few chunks of white clay created the teeth, once again using a toothpick to create the desired look.

For the tongue, I flattened out an oval of red, pushed a toothpick down the middle, and curled it to suit.

Placed eyes.

Rolled out super thin lines of gold white and brown mix, and placed with toothpicks to create facial expression and hair for the back of the head.
