Can anyone help me I love making chocolate transfers and FBCT, I think that chocolate transfers are easier? But I always have a problem making black for the chocolate transfer. The color seems to seize but I don't have this problem with any other color. I gradually add the color but I then it seizes before I get it black enough. I have a Kung Fu panda request soon and I would like to make him as a ct if possible.
Hi, I've had the same problem... I just resorted to buying the black in the tube....MUCH easier!!!
How old is your black candy color? It may have separated, so you're not getting the full mixture of color and oil. Nuke it for a couple of seconds, give it a stir or shake and try it again.
It's also good to start with a dark color so you don't have to use so much black coloring. I melt all my scrap chocolate together as the base for my black chocolate. (Scrap chocolate = extra CT's I didn't need!)
