Has anyone had experience with candy clay? I made a batch last night using the Wilton red candy melts and am waiting on some time to play with it -- any advice, hints???

Hey, Schmoop...Nice avatar, or should I say "veey nice?" Anyway, I LOVE candy clay. I used some yesterday on a cake where I needed to cut out precise triangles, and I knew that if I used fondant it would stretch when I picked it up to put it on the cake. I'm going to start using it for the ribbons around the base of tiers, for the same reason.

Another tip is that I brushed some white candy clay with dry gold luster dust, and it worked really well to make a shiny gold color. It was a better gold than I get when I do the vodka-gold dust liquid and brush it onto fondant or gumpaste.
