This is my first time attempting either, and now that I have it all made and am about to decorate....i got to wondering. Will the water in the royal icing effect the chocolate in the candy clay? Or is it such a small amount that it wont matter? I'm trying to draw a picture with royal icing on a candy clay "plaque"
WOW! That's a great plaque! Did you freehand that or did you have a mold?
Anyway, I have never used royal icing on candy clay, but if you have some leftove clay, I would use a little royal on that and let it sit for an hour or so and see what it does. If nothing else, you can use chocolate to decorate it. HTH!
I just cut out a picture of what i needed and sat it right on top of the clay. Then I cut the shape w/ an exacto knife, then lightly traced the lines of the picture with a toothpick to give an outline on the clay, then went back and went over the lines to make them more defined.
That's a great idea--i didnt even think about trying it out with the leftover--thank you!!!
