YES totally normal... I was talking to a fellow pastry friend about this this past week. He says to "fix" it to put the modeling chocolate in a paper bag overnight then flip it and leave it alone for a while... the bag will absorb the extra oil.

=D

Hope that helps!!!

You can't hold on to modeling chocolate and work it like fondant. You have to put it down frequently and let it cool.

Its the heat that brings it out, I use paper towel to soak it up. After you make your model it sets and it doesn't look oily. I love this stufficon_smile.gif
