Can anyone help me I love making chocolate transfers and FBCT, I think that chocolate transfers are easier? But I always have a problem making black for the chocolate transfer. The color seems to seize but I don't have this problem with any other color. I gradually add the color but I then it seizes before I get it black enough. I have a Kung Fu panda request soon and I would like to make him as a ct if possible.

How old is your black candy color? It may have separated, so you're not getting the full mixture of color and oil. Nuke it for a couple of seconds, give it a stir or shake and try it again.

It's also good to start with a dark color so you don't have to use so much black coloring. I melt all my scrap chocolate together as the base for my black chocolate. (Scrap chocolate = extra CT's I didn't need!)
