I need to make black. I really don't want to have to mix a ton of gel in (unless that's the only way)... can I airbrush modeling chocolate?
Michael's has black Wilton chocolates for Halloween now.
Our Walmart had black melts too in case you aren't close to a Michael's and you can order them straight from Wilton if you have time and are really out in the sticks. They also have a special green for Halloween.
The black is vanilla instead of chocolate.
I do not think that you can airbrush chocolate - chocolate is oil based and airbrush colors are water based and will bead up on the chocolate. I have used dark chocolate clay and added black - I achieved a great black and it still tasted like dark chocolate. I used black Americolor gel - the corn syrup in the clay allows the gel colors to incorporate with no problems. I have stocked up on the black candy melts, though .
Great, thanks so much for the replies... I'm off to Michael's to stock up as well!
