I made choco clay with candy melts and corn syrup and now after it has been set it is ozzing oil and it is way too soft....I didn't knead it a lot so I don't know why it is so oily.

That happened to me the first time I made it a long time ago. After I melted the chocolate, I didn't let it cool down enough before I added the corn syrup. Hence, when I added the two together, the oil from the candy started to separate. That candy stays pliable for a while so give it a while before you add the corn syrup in.

Oh I didn't know I had to cool down the candy there anyway to correct this? I forgot to mention it is white clay. thanks

When it happened to me.. I just kind of let it set for a couple days. Then I really kneaded it and it was okay but not perfect so i just made another batch.
