Help please!!!!! I'm trying to make playing cards with candy melts and a card mold. How have tried everything trying to get the diamond red and the spade black! The party is this coming Saturday and I'm making a poker cake for my sons 18th bday. Please somebody has to know
you mean you can't get the right colors?
first I made all the cars with white candy melt. They turned out beautiful but could not get any color to stick to the raised Heart and A. I tried icing color with paint brush, marker pens, gel. So then I painted inside the mold where I wanted color to be with Wilton candy dye then poured white over whole thing. I works but it spreads even after I let it set up.
Cards .. I typed cars
You did good by "painting" or filling the red and black spaces in first. Let it set real good before you add the white on top. Make sure when you pour the white on top that it is NOT hot. If it is too hot it will melt the black and red again and make it smear. It should be as close to room temperature as possible without thickening, if that makes sense. I learned by trial....and lots of error. ;^)
personally I would color the chocolate with the color first. If you take some of the white and mix th dye in it it will change colors. paint it into the letters let them dry then pour the white over the top of it.
I would also use colored chocolate. Either go ahead and buy some black and red vandy melts or make sure you use candy colors. The paint the mold in the letter area with your colored chocolate. Let it set. Then add your white on to.
Yes, paint the inside of the mold with red or black, let it dry, then put the white chocolate in.
Thank you for all your advice. I think I have spent enough money and time on these cards. I have not been able to get one that didn't bleed. So I guess I have to use real cards... I really didn't want to Now if I can get the Las Vegas sign right maybe this will work.
