Am in a bit of a pickle! I am using a chocolate mold to make tools for a cake I am in the middle of making. The problem is all the shops are shut that I need to get to and I don't know how to colour/paint the chocolate to make them look realistic. Would really appreciate some help on this one.....Might have to start making them out of fondant!!!

DO YOU HAVE SILVER LUST DUST?

if so, you can tint the choc a light greay and then dry dust them with the silver and they will look very realstic.

I have the silver lust dust!! What can I tint the choc with? Can I use normal food colouring/paste? I thought that might make the chocolate sieze?

yesi t will make it seize. you need a little blck candy color. BUT you might be able to try a little black of the reg kind and still have the choc work. you might need to add some melted shortening to it to restore it.
