I bought some modeling chocolate and used it to creat a nice face for my leprechaun figurine - but now what? does it need to dry/set? Does it get harder?

I tried to insert a dowel but it keeps poking through the choc so now it is sitting on a cookie tray on parchment paper, getting a flat head on the back but hey, isn't that what hair is for?

Any tips on using modeling choc for figures, how do you treat it, it what ways does it differ from gumpaste/fondant?

Maybe you can find your answer here. I read this blog all the time, but lately once she went into modeling chocolate, I got into too much work at the office. She works a lot with modeling chocolate, and after she hinted that you could also do mixes with fondant and gumpaste, my friends have done that and they say it's wonderful.

Hope this helps.
