Could you imagine how many dog lover's squeals when they open this decoration? My daughter will plow me over with a huge hug because she loves dogs. I can't wait to see the look on her face when she opens this ornament. I can't wait to get started on this project.

I love working with polymer clay. It's an easy forgiving medium. If you make a mistake it's very easy to redo it. Just make it back into a ball and roll it back out. This is so cute, that little puppy, peeping out just makes it perfect. I have a puppy just like it.

The directions say: Step 19 - Bake the clay at 275 degrees in a 350 degree oven. What temperature should it be?

I am no expert, but I think it states on the package of clay what temperature it needs to be baked at. I understand there are different kinds of clay. I am shooting in the dark, though, because I know nothing about it. Hopefully someone who knows can tell us. You might be able to find out using a search engine.
