How do I add color to chocolate clay? Or do I need to buy candy melts in different colors in order to do it?? Can I just add color to the white chocolate melts while they are melted, or will it change the consistency? I would appreciate any help... TIA
the safest/most reliable way is to add candy colors (which are oil based). the standard americolor/wilton colors are not oil based and can cause the chocolate to seize. the easiest thing is to add when melted.
you can use powdered coloring too without problems but you may have to work a bit harder to get it distributed.
also safe are using candy melts in various colors, but most of these colors are not very vivid.
you can also use flo-coat with the standard color gels, but i have not done this successfully myself, but in theory it should work .
you can only use candy color(oil based) to color white chocolate otherwise the chocolate will sieze.
