Hi I would like to know if you can color the white chocolate melts like you do frostings to get the colors you need for the transfers.
you need different colourings. i forget exactly what, is it water colourings you need? sure someone else will clarify!
Yes, you can color chocolate or melts. Wilton makes a candy coloring which is oil based and mixes well with chocolate. The other colors (paste and liquid) are water based and will seize up the chocolate.
Water will seize chocolate, therefore it's best not to use water based colorings. I'm pretty sure that the gel colors are water based too.
That leaves oil based coloring or just buying the pre-colored stuff.
That said, I don't have oil based coloring available to me. So I use powdered coloring diluted in the smallest amount of water possible (ie 1 drop) and add in a bit of cocoa butter.
Hope this helps!
A friend of mine use straight powdered colors. If you want to dilute the powder I would think you'd use oil.
When I tried using straight powdered colors, they didn't dissolve well so I ended up with teeny-tiny flecks.
Dissolving it in oil is a good idea- I'll have to try it next time.
