AI'm using the wilton chocolate wafers to mold some seashells but the chocolate is too thick to pour into the mold - I understand I'm not using the greatest chocolate to melt but is there any way to thin up the chocolate so I can pour it easier. right now I'm using a pastry bag to pipe it into the molds.

AAdd a very small amount of shortening to the chocolate ....start with a half or full teaspoon depending on how much chocolate you are melting. Stir chocolate and shortening together , put in microwave for a few seconds than stir again , do this until you get the desired consistency..add more shortening if needed. No matter what dont add water to the chcolate it will seize up and than its unusable
