Well, they are very different. I like both & I like to mix them together. The chocolate clay gets soft faster, if you have hot hands, I've heard it's harder to use. My hands are never hot, so it's easy for me. The white chocolate is way softer than the dark (milk choc is in between). Give it a shot, I'll bet you'll love it!

I like both but for different things. I like making cut out flowers out of chocolate clay, but I find it stickier, greasier, and softer. I've only used the colored candy pieces (Mercken's) rather than real chocolate. I don't particularly like the taste, i think the corn syrop ruins it for me.

You will never know what it is like until you try right? It is really simple to make!

thanks, at least i have an idea... so, if im going to use choco clay alone, i would find it difficult coz i have warm hands and the climate here is too hot... maybe i'll try combination of both. thanks again icon_biggrin.gif
