Can you use luster dust or disco dust after the chocolate comes out of the mold? Is there anyway to hand paint it?
Thanks,
Molly

Yes, you apply the dust after the chocolate comes out.Royal icing also works on chocolates-piped or brushed on. (remember the Easter Bunnies) depends on what details you want to create.

Happy Baking and Decorating,

Putting it on after it comes out will give it a different look than if you place it in the mold before you put the chocolate in.

It's also very difficult to get it nice and even in the mold so it doesn't come out blotchy.
