I want to make the carousel ponies out of the candy melts but the DETAILING is so small for these old eyes, I'm afraid I will make a mess if I try using different colors of the melts to "paint" in the reins, saddles,etc...... can you use powder colors or dusts AFTER they are molded, or would that just be more difficult ? Thanks......

I have used petal dust and luster dust to paint on chocolate molded pieces, turns out a soft color which I think looks good. You can use the food color pens to paint on molded pieces as well.

Matter of fact I am making basketball discs for 48 cupcakes today, and unfortunately the mold I am using has only one basketball cavity and is taking 7 minutes in freezer, each one!!...anyhow, I am using the black food color pen to make the makings in the basketball and works great.

Hi Hellie..... thanks for answering...... When you paint on the luster dust, do you put it in vodka or just dry dust ? This will be for a baby shower, so I want real light pastel colors..... I"ve had this mold for EVER, and have not had a chance to use it...... OH, and thanks for the heads up on the edible markers too.............. Thanks again.......
