How to make candy clay stiffer/harder?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Does anyone know if tylose or gum tex can be mixed with candy clay for it to dry as hard as gum paste flowers?
Also does anyone know how I can make the candy clay more flavorful? Would it be better for me to use real chocolate instead of candy melts?

As far as flavor, as long as it is an oil based flavor you can add it. To the best of my knowledge, anything else will make it seize. I have never added gumpaste to candy clay but here is a thread that talks about it.

Thanks, but do u have to mix it with gum paste... I was wondering if I could mix it directly with gumtec or tylose.

The Wicked Goodies site is great. Thanks for the tip.

 

Nekee, As for flavor, taste a candy melt, then taste real chocolate. You've got your answer. I have stopped using candy melts for anything. They ruin the flavor of the rest of my ingredients.
