Ok so I have tried to make candy clay multiple times and each time its oily I have read where people squeeze out the oil by hand but this seems a bit far fetched yeah it kinda works but it must have an easier way to make it.
Can anyone help? I hate to have something with only two ingredients woop me

Not sure why it's "far fetched" to squeeze out excess oil..........I do it, especially if I need to use it right away, can't wait for it to rest overnight, or if I need something to be very stiff. If I can wait, I usually leave it alone.

I work with it until I can feel & see the oils and then I sit it aside, let it rest, and then go back to it.

I find it to be less soft & oily when I use glucose instead of corn syrup. I prefer Guittard A'Peels for some things and for others, I like the Merken's Super White.

I made it one time and when I tried to squeeze the oil out I didn't seem to get a lot even though I could see it so I flattened it out a bit on wax paper and sopped up the oil with a paper towel then flipped it over and patted that side down with the paper towel then I walked away until it was time to wrap it up and let it sit over night. It worked great! Sorry for such a long run on sentence lol!!

When I make it, I pick it up and knead it while it's still pretty warm. The oil just drips out. It's kind of messy, but it turns out really smooth and a lot firmer.
