Candy clay handles best if hardened overnight.


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" thick.


To Tint (Optional)

White candy clay may be tinted using Candy Color or Icing Color. Knead in color until well blended.


To Store

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