I'm in the UK. I've had a good search through the forums, but I'm still not sure.  I wanted to make some green chocolate for trees, but only 2 or 3 trees, so I only need a small amount.  A packet of candymelts would be approx  £4, I'm sure that buying a bar of milkybar and colouring that might be an option, but I'm not sure if  using my sugarflair (paste) colouring would work.  Any suggestions? Thank you

I know they say you can only use candy colors to color modeling chocolate.  But that is in the liquid state.  If you make the modeling chocolate and then color it, you should be able to use your regular gel or paste colors.  I do this all the time.
