Is it ok to cover modelling choc with fondant?

I`m in the middle of making a horse cake and I`ve used modelling choc to cover and shape the legs. I had every intention of covering the whole cake with modelling choc but just realised I haven`t made enough! So I`m going to cover with fondant instead….but will it be ok to cover the modelling choc with thin layer of fondant so the legs blend with the body? Or should I mix the remaining choc I have with fondant and just cover the body. I`m hoping to airbrush it later. In fact, can you airbrush modelling choc?
I`m winging it as you may tell! Thanks for any advice xx

Wow this turned out great! Just to touch base on one of your questions. If you had of just mixed some fondant with your modelling chocolate the color would have been off and it would have been obvious where you had changed from one to the other or at least that is what I found when I had this same problem one time.
