What are you most proud of? I liked my twigs actually....and trying not to make the caterpillars not look creepy - now that was hard...tee hee but then I'm a little odd so who knows, it may have just been my twisted sense of humor.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make sure that you play ahead of your due date, with the chocolate/candy melts and light corn syrup ratios. I was originally taught to use 1/3 cup to 1 lbs of melts...well I changed that down to 1/4 c to 1 lbs....and to be honest, I think I might even make it a little less due to the stability of the modeling chocolate. I found it still a little to soft too quickly - but that is me...find what works best for you...trial & error!
