How do I add color to chocolate clay? Or do I need to buy candy melts in different colors in order to do it?? Can I just add color to the white chocolate melts while they are melted, or will it change the consistency? I would appreciate any help... TIA thumbs_up.gif

That's a good question. Hopefully someone can answer. The only time I've used chocolate clay is for the brown color. I would think that the colored candy melts would do the same and the chocolate. Or using the paste coloring probably wouldn't change the consistency too much. But I'm not super experienced working with chocolate.

A few days ago, someone mentioned that they color the corn syrup with the regular colors and it works great. Haven't tried it though.

I just colored my white modeling chocolate green last night using gel food coloring. Right after putting in the corn syrup and mixing it thoroughly, I added a dot of coloring at a time with toothpick and stirred it will not change the consistency at all... rolled out great and same consistency as nornal...
