I do make my own--sometimes.
If I need pure white, I use the Merken's bright white/wedding white. If I don't need pure white, I LOVE to use the Guittard A'Peels vanilla.
Many of the cake artists who make modeling chocolate use the Guittard A'Peels.
When I've purchased, I've bought Choco Pan modeling chocolate and Fondarific modeling chocolate. I like both. The Fondarific is the softer of the two, but both firm up very nicely and don't get greasy quickly.
