icon_surprised.gif I really need some help on what to use to paint chocolate- I am making boots in a mold but I need them to be painted in various colors. Does anyone know what I use to paint chocolate? I am clueless!

I haven't tried this but the first thing that comes to my mind would be cocoa butter mixed with your colors. Does anyone else think this would work??

what colors do I use? The same that I use in buttercream or oil colors?

I found something I ordered on CK called Flo-Coat, it's made to mix with Americolors to actually color the chocolate. I bougt some but I have not tried it yet. I don't know that you can actually paint with it though, I think cocoa butter colors may be the only way.

Thanks- I tried the cocoa butter and candy oils and it worked out great!
