I've tried many modeling chocolate/candy clay/chocolate leather recipes. In fact, I used some just the other day to make a flower and set it out to see what happened after a few days. It was still as soft as the day I made it four days later. It was firm enough to keep it's shape but could still be bent. I find it easy to work with but if you need something to dry hard, I think gumpaste or a gumpaste/fondant mixture would be better. HTH
