To Use: Candy clay will be very hard at the start; knead a small portion at a time until workable. If candy clay gets too soft, set aside at room temperature or refrigerate briefly. When rolling out candy clay, sprinkle work surface with cornstarch or cocoa (for cocoa clay) to prevent sticking; roll to approximately 1/8 inch thick.

To Tint: White candy clay may be tinted using Candy Color. Knead in color until well blended.

To Store: Prepared candy clay will last for several weeks at room temperature in an airtight container.

Candy Clay is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works This recipe is for a whole bag of candy melts (12oz). It will be oily when you transfer onto wax and when you saran wrap for storage. It will also be oily when you knead to soften. This is normal at least for me. After softening, resist the urge to over knead as you will need to wait for clay to harden to keep form. Can use powder sugar to help clay from sticking ifpressing or rolling.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No measurements?? I would like to try this recipe as an alternative to fondant or gum paste. However, it's a little difficult to do when you don't give measurements of how much candy melts to how much corn syrup. For that reason I used a different web site and chocolate to make my modeling chocolate. The one I used turned out great. I would like to use candy melts since I usually have them on hand for my cake balls. Telling my to melt candy melts and add corn syrup isn't much a recipe.
