I've worked a little with using MMF for figures, but am new to the candy clay. What are the benefits to using one over the other for creating smaller (i.e. farm animals) figures? Also, I'm planning on sculpting a larger tractor out of RK Treats, which do you think would be better to cover the tractor??? Thanks!

P.S. Originally posted this in the wrong section, I think icon_redface.gif . Sorry if this is a duplicate.

If the figurines are going to be eaten (a kids cake) then i will either use straight fondant or a mixture of fondant and candy clay. Depends on what i'm doing. I try to stay away from straight gumpaste for these things cause the little ones always want to eat them.

Is modelling chocolate similar to the candy clay? I made a batch of the candy clay last night using Wilton Candy melts and corn syrup.

i call it modelling chocolate, sounds the same as your candy clay.

Hello all, how do you prevent the fondant/gumpaste from cracking?
